"Green building education services definitely made the difference in whether or not I was going to pass the Green Associates Test. They covered the concepts of the LEED program very well and gave me a complete picture of green building so that I wasn't just memorizing the words but understanding them. I would and have recommended the online exam prep to anyone who is preparing to take the Green Associate test. As a mother of two and a business owner this was the only program that would work for my schedule at a price that was reasonable. The real proof to me that the online study guide, practice tests and flashcards all paid off was when I passed the test the first time. Now on to the LEED AP!!!"

"Having the Study Guide and Flash cards were a great help in preparing me for the test. The practice tests were very helpful in identifying my weak areas. It allowed me to focus on that particular subject which increased my practice score. Also the reference to other materials was a must in passing the LEED test on my first attempt." David A. Roux, LEED Green AssociateJohnson Controls, Inc.
