  1. Hey guys!
    I really want to take the LEED GA exam. I have already registered with the GBCI, but I still need to send a letter describing a sustainable Interior Design project I had done, and then being accepted. My question is: I recently was laid-off and I really don’t have a lot of money to do this, but I also know myself and I will need some type of instructor/study group and materials to pass this exam. Do you know of any teachers, practice exams, and reading material I can get really cheap? I can’t afford a $500 prep course! Ps. I live in Denver!

  2. Hi, Holly…

    Check out the courses at http://www.greenbuild365.org

    Many of them are very reasonable priced and many can be taken online.

    As per the USGBC: “All courses approved by USGBC and listed in the course catalog will fulfill the requirement for the LEED Green Associate because USGBC is an approved ERB for the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). Also, the courses located on the Greenbuild365 website address green building so they meet the criteria. When you have completed any of the courses, you receive a certificate of completion. The certificate is what must be submitted to GBCI for approval at the time of applying for the LEED Green Associate exam.”

    Hope this gives you a more affordable way to get your class time in.

  3. I just passed the LEED GA exam today. You might want to try greenexamprep.com – for only $50.00 you get the study guide, flash cards, practice tests and MP3 version of the study guide. Also the USGBC has their study guide (I think $35.00) this is also a good tool. Also, read all the auxillary readings listed in the USGBC guidebook.

  4. Thanks, Amelia. Here’s a direct link to the GreenExamPrep web site:


    I used their sample test questions and couldn’t have passed the test without them. I HIGHLY recommend purchasing study material from GreenExamPrep.

    Good luck!

    There are many free of charge references on line which can assist you in passing the exam. You should take a look at buildinggreen.com as well as contact your local USGBC chapter for educational information. The chapters sometimes trade volunteer hours for reference material and study guides. It is a shame this movement tends to lean more toward profit than altruism. Good Luck
