Tips to Passing the Cosmetology State Board Exam

Written with the same concept as the SAT preparatory materials, this book is intended to give students an edge when taking the State Board Exam.

Taking an exam can be intimidating. However, taking the Cosmetology State Board Exam can send even the bravest student into a panic. In Tips to Passing the Cosmetology State Board Exam, you will learn things you did not learn in school--things you absolutely must know if you are to pass the exam.

Cosmetology schools train you how to be a cosmetologist. However, they do little, if anything, in training and preparing you to take the State Board Exam. When you use Toni Love's book, you will walk into the room totally prepared to pass and even ace an exam that puts fear in the hearts of many! You will develop confidence and poise. This is important, as you will be observed performing the professional skills you were taught in cosmetology school. Through the pages of this book, you will develop confidence in what you know and how you must present it when taking the exam.

This book will set you apart from other students who do not properly prepare for the exam... students who do not have the benefit of Tips to Passing the Cosmetology State Board Exam. You will know that you must make a good impression by arriving at the exam clean and well groomed. If you are using a live model for the exam, the model must NOT be in the hair care field (such as a cosmetologists, instructors, etc.).
