Studying for your esthetician written exam? Most esthetician students will take a theory test that’s been created by the NIC*. And what most estheticians students don’t realize is that while they’ve been studying from one textbook, the NIC test is based on two (Milady Standard Esthetics and Salon Fundamentals Esthetics).

While these two books cover a lot of similar territory – they’re not identical. That’s why questions for our exam were sourced from both.

We prepared our tests with a specific goal in mind: that come the day you take the theory exam, the questions will have a ring of familiarity, regardless of which textbook you studied.

(Please note our app is NOT applicable for all esthetician students. For more information see our note marked with an “*”. )

We’ve also narrowed the focus by following the NIC testing guidelines in preparing questions. There are chapters in both books that you won’t be tested on, and why waste your study time?

Our exams have randomized questions, a randomized answer set, and include extra answers – that means you shouldn’t ever get the same list of questions, with the same ordered set of answers. We mix things up this way so you can be confident you’re not just memorizing a pattern, but thoroughly testing your grasp of the material.

Features include:

- 860 questions
- A clean and intuitive interface

- Random ordering of questions

- Random ordering of answers
- Surplus answers

- Option to choose quiz length
- Options to mark, skip and review

- Option to review past results

Best of luck to you!

* The NIC (National Interstate Council of State Boards of Cosmetology) produce standardized esthetician written (theory) exams for over 30 states, and source their questions from both the Milady Standard Esthetics and Salon Fundamentals Esthetics textbooks. We have based our practice quizzes on their guidelines. Several states do not use the NIC exam but administer a test that is very similar, in which case our app would be a good study aid – but a few states use a completely different format. Please see our website for more information, or contact your state regulatory agency.
