Practicum Exam Prep

NCIDQ’s  Practice Design Problems (PDPs) help you prepare for the newly formatted practicum section of the exam by simulating the actual testing experience. The new PDP is a complete sample examination that includes all the exercises you will encounter on the actual examination.

NCIDQ’s Practice Design Problems come with:

  • Problem booklets and codes for all three parts of the exam
  • 18” x 24” vellum drawing sheets

New PDPs will be released after each practicum examination. Practice Design Problems are available to anyone; you do not have to be an approved exam candidate to purchase one.

Multiple-Choice Exam Prep


Practice materials for IDFX and IDPX are available exclusively through the Prometric delivery system! Each practice test consists of 50 multiple choice questions in order to best simulate the IDFX and IDPX exams. During the practice tests, you can choose a response or mark a question to return to it later. At the end of the practice test, you receive a score report that provides your results broken out by the content areas of each section. These results help you determine your strengths and weakness in order to best study for the exam. At the end of the exam you also have the opportunity to find out the rationale for test answers you missed on the simulated test. You may only complete the exam once, but may take up to 10 days to finish it.
