Nadene Bruders has helped hundreds of people pass the California Cosmetology, Esthetician, and Manicurist state board exams. Drawing from 39 years of experience in the cosmetology industry, Bruders has developed and published three comprehensive guidebooks to prepare manicurists, cosmetologists, and estheticians for the practical and written parts of the exam. Score! How to Pass the California Manicurist State Board Exam is packed with illustrations to help students visualize the techniques required to pass the exam. Also included with the guidebook is a CD to prepare students for the written portion.

“Passing the state board license exam to some is a terrifying experience that students have to go through before they can continue with the rest of their manicurist lives; this book has been developed to help you overcome that fear,” says Bruders. “It is personal and user-friendly, containing all of the information that you need in one place.”
