You Should Take Our Prep Course for the North Carolina Cosmetology Exam!

Since so much is riding on the written cosmetology exam, you should consider taking a course that prepares you to take the exam. But beware! Most courses do little more than barrage you with questions that, frequently, are not even relevant to the tested materials. These courses hurt your chances at passing the written cosmetology exam (and, therefore earning your cosmetology license) because they: a) fail to review relevant material; b) mislead you into studying material that is not tested on the written exam; c) are discouraging because they present material that is seldom, if ever, tested; and d) fail to present the material in a medium that is conducive to learning!
