Q. How can potential examinees be strategic regarding the certification process?

A. If you plan to become registered or licensed, go ahead and start that process and collect your documentation at the same time that you are completing your application to take the NCIDQ Exam. Many of the requirements are the same, so this will save time and help you to expedite the process after you pass. If you are deficient in any of your state's requirements, you can work on that while preparing for the exam.

Q. How are examinees best able to assess knowledge before the exam?

A. Pretesting is a must. Pretesting can raise your score on the exam by an average of 10%.

Taking pretests, even failing them, can help you achieve success on the final exam. U.C.L.A. psychologist, Elizabeth Ligon Bjork, found that pretesting can raise your score on the final exam by an average of ten percent. And that's enough to mean the difference between passing or failing.

Q. What were your must-have study items when preparing for your exam?

A. Again, practice tests — take as many practice tests and quizzes as possible, including online and paper practice tests. Take advantage of spare moments by using flashcards when you're offline, commuting, waiting in line — all those otherwise wasted moments can add up to serious learning.

Q. What is your prediction for changes to the industry over the next 5 years?

A.Virtual and augmented reality will change the way we design and present to clients; it's even possible that we will create augmented spaces as part of the end project design. Designers should embrace technology and welcome the creative opportunities that new tools and solutions bring to the industry.
