Pass the LEED Exam by Utilizing These 5 Strategies

We love hearing from our students and getting feedback about their LEED exams. We recently heard from a student from our Boston LEED training class who wanted to provide thoughts on how to pass the LEED exam – like she did.

She sent a note to our instructor, Joan Darvish-Rouhani, that she passed the LEED Green Associate exam with a score of 190 (out of 200!). She also supplied some tips for her classmates to help them avoid the often-seen procrastination stage. We wanted to share these words of wisdom with you all…

1. Just take the exam already! You will want to study and study and study to the point where you won’t know if you’re ready to take the exam or not. You’re ready. You know this stuff! Joan taught you everything you need to know to pass the LEED exam. Do not procrastinate any longer!

2. Make use of mnemonics. The test-taking tips and techniques that were introduced in our LEED course haven proven success and work!

3. Look for questions on the exam that have been reworded. You might find several questions asking about the same topic – this will either be easy points gained or easy points lost!

4. Do not stress about math. There were very few math problems on the LEED exam. Most questions asked about the LEED credits.

5. Pay attention to how the question is worded. Several of the questions may ask you to select two or three answer choices. The question will come up as incomplete if you don’t check off the proper number of responses. This notice will show up when you hit the Review button.
