Interior Design Student's Comprehensive Exam is designed for students to take the mystery out of the NCIDQ qualifying exam for interior design professionals. The activities contained in this workbook are intended to create experiences similar to those of taking the exam. Hopefully, since career advancement does not lay in the balance for students working on these exercises the way it does for the professional taking the exam, they will be a fun challenge. These exercises are intended to be an introduction to some of the content, scope and pacing of the exam. The questions and design scenarios included in this workbook are not endorsed by NCIDQ, nor are they testing exercises for professionals preparing for the exam. They are student exercises which can imitate features of the exam to answer student questions about the exam experience.Features:-- Multiple choice questions cover topics similar to those found in the NCIDQ, including space planning, business considerations, codes, advanced design planning, documentation, and so on-- Multiple choice questions do not rely on the judgment that comes with working in the field but rather the information that the student has likely learned in the classroom-- Design scenarios enable students to read the program quickly and develop a design concept that meets all of the design requirements, allowing time to develop and complete the mandatory drawing-- Suggested scoring sheet for all scenarios full and "lite"-- Answer sheet for the multiple choice questions includes some reasoning behind the most correct answer if the instructor wants to use a review of the multiple choice section as an opportunity for a class discussion-- CD-ROM includes PDFs of all versions of design scenarios
