The National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) certifies interior designers in the United States and Canada with a 13 1/2-hour, closed-book exam, offered every April and October. The exam is divided into three sections, each of which may be taken individually.

The Interior Design Reference Manual is the designer's primary source for exam preparation. This manual provides an overview of the exam topics and practice problems, with solutions.

Updated for the new NCIDQ exam format, the second edition of the Interior Design Reference Manual is the most efficient and thorough review for the interior design exam. Along with an explanatory review of exam topics, the Manual provides 233 exam-like practice problems (with solutions) and test-taking strategy. The book is enhanced by illustrations, tables and charts of data, and a detailed index.

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
