Why did we create our review course for the written cosmetology exam?
A lot of our students have asked us why we created our review course for the cosmetology test. The short answer is that somebody needed to do it and we are experts in the field! The written cosmetology exam is difficult and the failure rate is very high. For example, in California the pass rate was only 30% (http://www.barbercosmo.ca.gov/applicants/schls_rslts.shtml) and in some states (Texas for example) the failure rate is 40%.
Let’s be honest here, the cosmetology training most students receive in beauty school focuses on technique, safety, and practical skills (which is the fun part of being a cosmetologist!). However, in order to get a license you still need to pass the written exam. Until we created our cosmetology study guide and review course there was nothing available to help students review the subjects that are tested on the exam. Until we created our cosmetology exam review, students were left on their own to review their text books in order to prepare for the test.
There are a few other cosmetology study guides out there that claim to have “secrets” to passing the written exam. Students who buy these guides will waste their time and money. The only “secret” to passing the exam is to study the tested material. We make it easy and fun to study just the material that is on the test.
Cosmetology schools can charge nearly $20,000 for tuition and students commit more than a year of their lives to cosmetology training. It is simply a tragedy that after spending so much time and money there would be so many aspiring cosmetologists that have their dreams left unfulfilled because they can’t pass the darn written exam.
Simply put, we created our cosmetology exam review in order to help students pass the written cosmetology exam.
