We strongly recommend you take one of the 5 Timed Exams. These are designed to simulate a state board exam as much as possible. No one knows what the exact questions will be on your state board exam - so it is imperative to study all of your subjects and make good use of the different types of exams available to you here. The purpose of the timed exams is to simulate the pressure of completing the state board exam accurately and in plenty of time. Once the exam is complete you will see your statistics and if you took the exam on a computer, you can print it from the results page. When you fail an exam you will be prompted to take it again. When you pass an exam you can review all of your answers. You can retake any exam whether you have passed or failed. The timed exams are available to you through the purchased Total Access page.

There are three Power Exams which have 250 questions in specific topics from the following: (1) Scientific Topics (2) Hair Care Topics (3) Skin Care and Nail Care Topics. These are all available to you through the purchased Total Access page.

The Grand Exams have 500 questions each. There are 3 Grand Exams available. These are not timed. Passing one of these exams not only increases your memory and knowledge, but also your confidence. If you had any doubts in your ability to pass a written state board exam - you can overcome those doubts by passing at least one of the Grand Exams. You will be able to review the outline of the test as you take it. These are all available to you through the purchased Total Access page.

Why should you purchase the online cosmetology exam in order to prepare for your state board licensure exam?

You have worked very hard to get to this point. You have put in the hours. You have performed countless roller sets, men's haircuts, wedding updos, hair color and texturing services, and so much more. You have studied anatomy and physiology, trichology, and chemistry (and much, much more). The only thing that is left, before you can begin your dream career - is to pass your state board licensing exam! Whether you will work as a cosmetologist in California, Alabama, Alaska, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota... Mississippi, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. you must pass your state board exam first! You can do it. Improve your chances of passing your state board exam through review, practice and fortifying your confidence right here on this site!

Your state board cosmetology exam will include information from more than one curriculum. The testing companies do not reveal the exact questions on the exam to anyone - but they do reveal the topics on the exam and all the subjects within those topics. From that information, we were able to develop an exam service with a pool of over 1,500 questions from the topics and subjects that will be included on the state board exams. You can choose total access to all exams where all questions (over 1,500) are available for you to practice with, or you can choose one subject (a la carte) or more, or topics, or many other smaller exams available on our site. There will be questions and answers on the actual state board exam you won't be familiar with because of the fact that you probably only studied under one curriculum during your cosmetology training. Your best bet is to purchase total access to the online cosmetology exams for only $29.99 where you will have access to unlimited attempts with any of our exams - or all of them. You will be able to practice and review questions similar to a state board exam, but in a relaxed environment, your own home, your own smart phone, tablet or computer, at your own convenience. Remember, practice makes perfect. Now go for it... and Good Luck!
