This is a test prep book for the interior design licensing exam. I have now read through it twice. All the material is there and clear, but I wish it had more information on the practicum section of the exam which is the hardest and needs the most explanation. Read full review

Got this as study material for NCIDQ, but wish I read Professional Practice instead. Good reference book, though. Read full review
