QUESTION: I have not studied at ALL. Not one day but I have been an interior decorator for over 10 years. I have been approved for the IDEX exam under Path 2, Category D ( https://ccidc.org/becoming-a-certified-interior-designer/ ). If I took your course, would I be ready to sit for the exam in May?
IDEXPREP REPLY: Everything would depend on what you currently know from your work experience and how many hours you spend reading, studying and comprehending what is in the course.
The exam covers three areas (called domains) and the one area designers usually need to study the most is Domain 1 on California Codes & Regulations.
If you are going to take the exam in May, we suggest scheduling your exam for the end of May, and enroll in a study course today, but be sure that you have the time to read the materials, take the practice exams and actually study.
Since our course materials and quizzes are available to a student all at one time, and you do not have to take the course in any particular order, we suggest you go straight to the end and take our 150 question final quiz, to see what you already know.
By taking our final quiz first (it is multiple choice), it will give you an overview of what the IDEX exam is like, and you’ll be better able to determine if you will be ready to take it in May.
Also – with our course – you do have the option to study for a while (or even for a few days) … and if you decide to put off your exam until October, just let us know and we can put the remaining days you have left in your course “on hold”.
In other words, we can disable your class anytime and enable it again. So if you enrolled in our 60-day course and studied for 10 days but then decided to take the exam in October,
you would have 50 days remaining, and all you would need to do is email us when to enable your class again.
