“Indeed I was very surprised and obviously pleased when I saw my LEED Green Associates exam results. But since then, I have been granted the LEED AP BD+C credential, and I am on my way to take the LEED for Homes exam next week. I am really passionate by green architecture, so it’s a real pleasure to study the LEED Reference Guides, as I learn a lot of essential things that nourish my thinking and my professional practice. I think what helped me, it’s first my sincere interest in this subject matter, also my previous experience on several green architecture projects in France (where I come from); however, there is no mystery about succeeding in the exams: I studied a lot and regularly! Thank you for your very useful business and, in particular, for your study materials; I found your mock-up exams more difficult than the real exams, and that is great!”
Michael Hackspill, Registered Architect in New York and France, LEED AP BD+C, LEED AP Homes – Certified Passive House Designer
“I was so pleased with your preparation course for the LEED GA v4 exam that I just wanted to pass along this message. The practice exams from you guys were spot on. Not only did the content recur on the exam but the wording was spot on. I am looking to prepare now for the LEED BD+C exam and will ABSOLUTELY use your practice exams for that.”
Vincent G. DeFazio, Architect, LEED Green Associate
“I passed the test with a great score. I could not have done so with just the USGBC-supplied study guide and core concepts books. I have consequently referred your website to six of my co-workers who are planning to take the exam.”
J.W. Mollohan, CCPR, CEP, LEED Green Associate, Strategic Marketing Manager, Dryvit Systems, Inc.
“I passed LEED GA/LEED AP BD+C recently with 183/200 in both. I took GA exam in Sep’10 and AP exam after 3 months in Jan’11. I say thank you and recommend you to go ahead with the leader of providing services for green education – GBES.com the because course and tests were so comprehensive that I passes on 1st try without having USGBC’s Green Associate Study Guide (I only had USGBC’s LEED AP BD+C ref. guide). Once again I thanks to GBES.com for their help and prompt support.”
Niraj Mevada, Project Manager at MHPM Project Leaders, LEED AP BD+C
“I wanted to thank you for your dedication to helping those aspiring to be LEED AP’s. I started studying with another program about a month ago. I went through their study guides and practice tests. On the 22nd I did not feel comfortable with my preparation level and ordered your product. “What a difference to know what to expect. Especially to understand the difference between the Green Associate and AP tests. I crammed through those two days took all 4 versions of your tests and PASSED my LEED AP exam on the 24th. “Without your practice tests I have full confidence I would not have passed the Exam. I am sincerely thankful and only wish I had found your website earlier. I know it must have been a hard switch from v2.2 to LEED 2009 thank you for keeping up; others did not do it as gracefully.”
Adam Gray, Project Manager, LEED AP BD+C
“I thank God for leading me to your site. I did my first try for the LEED GA this morning and passed. I cant believe having scored 197. Your review material is excellent. I will avail again of your services for my LEED AP exam preparation and recommend your site to others. Millions of thanks.”
Dan Busilan, Distribution Engineering Standards at EPCOR, LEED Green Associate
“The GBES online book that you included in your package with the test questions was perfect! I passed the Green Associate exam the first time – 91.5%! I recommended it to 3 other people, who did purchase it. They passed the Green Associate exam also the first time! I am definitely going to purchase one of the other products when I start to study for my LEED AP!”
Brenda J. Yuhas, PMP, LEED Green Associate

Bruce (Lemar) Cullum, LEED AP O+M, DAVACO Inc.
“I’d like to thank you for your supports to study to be LEED AP BD+C. I started from LEED GA with your practice exam on April,2010,passed and then passed LEED AP BD+C on November,2010, as using your LEED AP practice tests. After two times review of practice tests, I could have full confidence about real exam. So I could have passed it on first attempt for both. I highly recommend you for people who seek LEED credential.”
Mi Ja Nam, KIRA, LEED AP BD+C, Kaighn Associates Architects Inc.
“Absolutely worth the money and time to use these services. Working full time, traveling as a Project Manager completing a project and being a Father and Husband didn’t leave a lot of time for taking classes or studying. The ability to take practice tests, that I could do anywhere, got me familiar with the types of questions and the types of materials covered in the actual exam. I tried studying other literature but I guarantee that I learned more by using this program. I passed my LEED Green Associate exam the first time and completed the exam in less than half of the allotted time allowed. I would definitely use this exam prep again and recommend them to everyone.”
Eddie Dudley, LEED Green Associate, Munlake Contractors, Inc.

“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.

When I took the test, it took me only 55 min and passed on 1st try; I felt as if I would have passed it with just your $50 material alone. I learned more from the web material then from the 5 day – $1,500 course with a LEED AP teacher. Thank you very much for the help. I have recommended your services to all my co-workers.”

Fort Collins, CO
“I just wanted to say that your LEED example practice tests are amazing. I had studied all of the LEED NC v2.2 credits and requirements and had memorized them by heart and knew them forward and backwards. Your practice tests really reinforced the knowledge that I had and gave me the correct preparation to answer the LEED subjects in question format. Without your tests I wouldn’t have been able to pass the test. I got an 182!! Thanks!!”
Morais C. Miranda, RCDD, LEED AP

“I just wanted to let you know that your test product was completely invaluable to my studying for the LEED-CI before it phased out.

Matthew J. DeVries
Smith Cashion & Orr, PLC
“I just wanted to drop you a note and let you know your practice exams really helped me with taking the LEED test. I took the exam on Friday and scored a 191 out of 200 points! It seemed like every time I took a new test from your website there would be new topics such that I was getting a score of approximately 70%. Since you stated a score of 80% was what we should be shooting for I was getting somewhat worried if I would pass. However your explanations of why answers were incorrect provided new knowledge which helped me when I took the actual test.”
Tom Prost, P.E., LEED AP
St. Louis, MO
Poehlman & Prost, Inc.
“I just took the LEED AP exam (New Construction) and passed with a score of 194 / 200 ! I credit the practice tests from Green Building Education Services with much of my success. The tests helped me gain the knowledge necessary to pass the test. They also helped my understand the kinds of “trick” questions for which the LEED AP exam is known. The immediate feedback with correct information for incorrect answers was very beneficial. After several rounds of practice, I felt confident of success when I took the real test. I’ll look to GBES the next time I am faced with this kind of challenge.”
Michael C. Ronayne, P.E., LEED AP
Vice-President, Senior Engineer
GEM Engineering, Inc.

Richard Marquez, LEED AP

Thank you for the practice tests. Yes they are very much like the real exam. Thank you so much for creating these practice tests. ”

Wiley Office Furniture
“I am so happy to inform you that today I have passed LEED AP NC test!! I know for sure that it could not have been at all possible without your practice test. I only did the practice test and that is it. Just reading the reference guide did not help me but to send me to sleep. As soon as I started the test practice, everything changed dramatically!! I was actually following the book and found it was actually very interesting. I also would like to thank you for your generosity to extend the practice period for over a month!! Could not pass the exam for the first time without it!”
Many many thanks!

“I passed my LEED NC AP test yeterday!! And I wanted to send a short note to say thank you so much for preparing me so well. The GBES practice tests were an excellent way to prepare. They were informative, educational and much harder than the actual test – a good thing! I really appreciate your efforts and assistance. Thanks again!”
Santa Monica CA
“I wanted to take a moment to contact you about your study aid for the GBC’s LEED exam. I bought your product for the version 2.2 exam. I had taken and failed the exam twice before I bought your on-line study aid. My first two attempts were made by using the conventional method of studying. I did increase my knowledge of LEED but not enough to pass. But after I bought your on-line study aid, it made all the difference for me. Not only did I pass on the third attempt, I passed by 10% over the minimum points required. If it wasn’t for your product, I would have continued to struggle through the learning process and possibly failed again. I only wish that I had know about your product after my first failure. You have a tremendous product and I highly recommended it. Thank you for everything.”
Lucas C. McGrail, Associate AIA, LEED AP
“I want to thank you for making it possible for me to actually do what your Logo states (Pass the First Time). I decided that I wanted to become a LEED AP. I actually had no idea what that might entail. My background is in construction. I have no engineering or architectural background. I took a one day class that was supposed to prep me for the LEED AP exam. It was a waste of $500 and the day. The food wasn’t any good either. I bought a $125 book that was pretty much the same story. I looked at everything I could find. I stumbled onto Green Building Education Service on line and decided to blow the $50 and give it a try. Knowing what I know now I would have gladly spent the $700 or so on all the other things on your program and been a lot better off. You offer a great product, actually the only product I have found that could have made it possible for (even) me to pass the LEED AP test on the first try!”
Thank You All So Much!
Paul Wellman – LEED AP
“I passed!!! Yesterday morning with a 185. Thank you so much for your great study materials. They were hands down the most helpful resources I purchased. I’ve continued to recommend them to everyone still working to make the cut before the 30th.”
“I took the LEED exam this afternoon and finished in about an hour and a half and made a 188. I don’t think I could have scored this well without your on-line exams. Even after getting my on-line scores into the upper 80s and 90s it was still a very difficult test. Since I had not taken a test in over 25 years it was great to get me back into that “mode” before sitting in that room, nervous as heck. Thanks guys. You rock. ”

“I did it – I passed. I must thank you for helping me to pass the exam. I couldn’t have done it without you.”
“Your on-line exams were the final step for me in passing the LEED-CI, which many folks say is actually the more difficult of the various USGBC “products” in terms of content. Thank you for a “just-in-time” rescue that helped me navigate the tricky questions on the exam. Having the time to practice intensively and see improvements over the course of five days earned me just enough points to pass on this final attempt. Other colleagues also used your exams to pass LEED NC — so thank you for offering such great professional resources. ”

“Thank you so much for such speedy response. Hey I know for a fact that it’d be a Sunday night for you out there in Lewisville, TX But the fact that a) your site’s auto response wordings were so reassuring and not a typical one gets and b) your response came in just about four hours afterwards. Makes me just say – WOW….TRUELY DEDICATED & WONDERFUL CUSTOMER CARE !! Thank you from bottom of my heart for resolving this for me. Truly appreciate it. God bless ya’all ! ”

After 3 weeks of fairly consistent preparation (and not at the cost of whatever else I had to deal with professionally as an architect) using your materials exclusively (except for the Reference Book), I was able to take the exam and score 192. This is a credit to your organization, and I compliment you on the quality and usefulness of the material purchased. Aspiring students of LEED 3.0 AP exam can do no better for themselves than to use your materials for preparation.”
“I’m writing once again to thank you for the extension time you offer me for the online test. As I said before it was definitely an excellent study tool (I have already recommended it to 4 friends). You asked me to let you know how I did in the exam, I present the exam for the first time on May 30th & I’m glad to tell you that I passed with 180 points. ”
“I wanted to let you all know that I passed my exam today, and wanted to thank your staff giving me the last extension. I will highly recommend your site.”
“I just wanted to thank you for your practice tests. I took my LEED NC test last week and passed. The practice tests were a terrific way to study – they were really difficult at first, and they forced me to amend my notes over and over again as I went through each of the tests learning more material. I was impressed how thorough your answers were – they would almost always exactly explain why I got an answer wrong. I took each test two times! And they were invaluable, and I am sure why I passed. All in all, a great product, well put together, easy to use, and extremely worthwhile.”

W R Toole Engineers, Inc
“This morning I passed my LEED exam on my first attempt. The money I paid for your on-line exam practice prepared me very well for the real exam. I will endorse your product / service / website to everyone I know who may be interested in pursuing their LEED accreditation.”
Steven A. Mummey, LEED AP
Controls (Indirect) Operations Manager
“I had some trepidation about recommending your site to my colleagues because I had not pass the LEED AP exam yet. This morning I learned what a great service you provide. I passed the test with flying colors – a big cushion above the passing score. I owe my success entirely to the help I found through your site. Your practice exams pointed out my weak areas, allowing me to concentrate my study on the areas of LEED the least familiar.”
Thank you hardly seems adequate.
David Stutzman, AIA, CSI, CCS, SCIP, LEED AP
“Your practice tests were extremely helpful! I passed my LEED CI exam with a maximum score of 200. Thank you!”
Heather L. Olson, CID, IIDA, LEED AP
“I passed! First try. 194”
Your practice tests are right on the money.

“Thanks to your excellent preparation materials for LEED-AP v2.2 examination, i came out in flying colors in the actual examination…and in my FIRST TRY.”
Surajit Amrit, PE, LEED-AP
“Please let me know where I can nominate your business for the best Customer Service ever! Thank you for your consistent help. I will purchase the 30-day extension as soon as I get to login again.”
“I have passed my LEED CI exam with score 191 on the first try! Thank you, I couldn’t have done it without your helpful prep tests.”
San Pedro CA
“The emotional pain of selecting wrong answers on the practice tests was the memory glue needed for recall. It was apparent that LEED test writers create test questions with “leading” language and subtle “off-track” construct. The practice exams prepare you for this. I took the battery of practice exams three times each, with improvement each time. I passed the exam the first time with points to spare. Nothing else would have had this impact for me. Thanks.”
Johnson Peoples Architects
“I’m not sure who this should go to, but I wanted to let you know that I passed my LEED-CI test on Monday 5/18 with a 197! I couldn’t have done it without your practice tests. They were the key to showing me the question format and the tricky way that LEED asks the questions. I’ve passed on this terrific resource to all my classmates. Many thanks.”
No&#eumllle Richa, LEED AP
MFA Interior Design Graduate Student
The George Washington University
“Just a note to say that I took the LEED exam this morning and PASSED it! I’m crazy excited about it, and wanted to write you and thank you for the practice tests you provide. I studied your tests after taking them, and was able to garner a lot of information that was missing from my other review materials. Your tests are well thought-out, error-free, and absolutely essential for anyone who is serious about passing the harrowing LEED exam.”
Thanks Thanks Thanks!
Beyhan Cagri Trock, AIA, LEED AP

“I want to thank you again for extending my access time. I definitely believe that made the difference as I passed my test on my first try.”
Tanis A. Manseau, PE, CBO,CEM, LEED AP
“I purchased your LEED NC sample exams (and the notecards as a special side-deal) – they were tough! I had been studying my own notecards for about 2 weeks and didn’t start using your exams until a week before the test. Unfortunately, I only made it through 3 sample exams with scores ranging from 55% to 75%. I took the exam fearing the worst and scored a 191! Thanks so much! Those tough exams with the answers explained helped me to a great score.”
Michigan State University
East Lansing MI
“I took your practice tests repeatedly and it worked. I passed the test the first time with a 181. The tests were the most effective learning tool for me, especially the analysis after each question.”
“Thank you! Your customer service is great and I highly recommend you to friends and colleagues. Have a great day!”
“I just wanted to thank your company for offering these services. I was very stressed before the exam as I was challenged by your practice tests a great deal. I then followed up my practice tests with focused study sessions using the online course that you offer. The one-two punch combination really helped me knock out this exam! I PASSED!!”
Associates and Green Engineers
“On my 1st try I passed the LEED exam on Wednesday, April 22, 2009 (Earth Day a.k.a Green Day) thanks to your LEED test preparation material. Your sample exams were invaluable. I don’t think I would have passed without taking your sample exams. Any area that I came up weak on, after taking a sample exam, I focused my efforts on improving in that area. Everyone who wants to pass the LEED exam needs to use your test preparation material i.e., training class, flash cards and practice tests.”
Oral A. Selkridge, RA, LEED AP
Selkridge Architecture, PLLC
“Thanks to the team at GBES for putting together such an incredible study tool. I sat for the exam a few years ago and didn’t pass, so imagine my chagrin when my company made LEED AP certification a requirement! Your practice questions not only helped me know what to study, but trained me on how to read the questions–a vital part of exam success. Have recommended your site to every candidate I know! ”
Christine a. Meske, LEED AP
Senior landscape architect/site planner
“I recently passed the LEED AP exam and believe in large part that it was due to the practice exams that I bought from you. I was especially impressed with how thoroughly you pointed out the changes on Errata Sheets. Without your insight, I never would have been aware of the many changes. I have recommended your products to the others in my office who are currently studying. Again, thanks for your help and keep up the good work.”
“The questions on the exam were quite different from what was in the practice exams, however the formatting was the same so the practice tests assisted me greatly in my studying of the LEED reference material and passing the overall exam. I know they are now changing it to a new format. I would definitely recommend your practice tests for those taking the exam in the future. I was recently at a conference with 50 other LEED AP candidates, and I recommended your website to everyone I spoke to.”
Daniel Valcourt, LEED AP
“Thank you for the on line GBES tests for the LEED CI. I am glad that the prep tests A, B, C, and D were challenging, because I found that the actual test was even slightly more challenging. I passed the LEED CI exam today, so Thank You for preparing me so well with the practice tests.”
Robert L. Klinger
Senior Vice President
Transwestern Commercial Services of Illinois
“I passed the test today with a 189. I would have not been able to do it without the practice tests. ”
“Thank you very much. Your four-tests questions (320) was outstanding and taught me several items. I took the LEED-NC, v 2.2 test today and passed. I will inform my friends and colleagues – if they want to pass the LEED Test – First take these 4-tests – it is really worth it for the Final test.”
Suresh Shah, P.E., Indian Health Service
“You have an excellent product, and I have recommended it to a local LEED overview seminar provider as a resource for their attendees.”
Stephen T. Woodworth, PE, CEM, LEED AP, Commissioning Services Engineer
“Thank you for your on-line LEED test prep course and sample tests. I was remarkably well prepared for the test and passed it on my first try. The practices tests were the key to my success. The cost of your course was well worth the investment. I have finally joined the ranks of the green building professionals with my designation.”
David E. Niederhauser, LEED AP, PACE BUILDING GROUP, LLC
“The tests were a great help. I passed my exam and I will recommend your site to others for sure.”
Wayne Whitzell, LEED AP, Corporate Care
“After reading my EB 2.0 reference guide, I purchased GBES. My practice test scores were horrible. After taking each test numerous times and using notes while taking the tests, my scores and knowledge got better. Leading up to my test date, I was averaging a score of 85%-95% on the practice tests. I walked into Prometrics and knew most of the questions immediately. I passed with a 183! I couldn’t have done it without GBES!”
Russ Scarce, LEED AP, Pacific Building Care
“I just wanted to express my appreciation toward the GBES simulator put together by your institution. I was introduced to your website by one of the LEED websites and this was the turning point to my study scope. I passed yesterday after using your website’s 4 practice parts. The questions in the 4 sections are written such a way that makes you understand all the details necessary for passing the exam. Once again thank you for this wonderful and money well spent tools and I will definitely recommend your websites to my colleagues in Construction Management Industry! ”
Mac Naeemi, Smoot Construction
“I just wanted to say thank you. I took passed the LEED CI today with a score of 187. I couldn’t have done it without your practice test. ”
“I wanted to take a moment to comment on the practice software that I used to prepare for my test. It was by far the best move I made in preparing myself for the LEED NC 2.2 test. I passed my first attempt and feel that I owe all of my success on the test to your program. It prepared me with the understanding of the test requirements and the format of the test. It also forced me to study the most important information in the content of the LEED test. By far the best money I could have invested for educating myself for this test.”
Kevin Smith, LEED AP, BCH Mechanical
“I have always been a horrible test taker, but the practice exams helped me pass on my first try with a 176!!! My first round of practice testing I scored an average of 60% one week before the LEED exam, then two days before the exam I took another round and scored an 80% average. I would highly recommend spending $50 for the practice test to pass the first time rather than spending $400 to re-take the LEED exam.”
Brent Zuber, Dallas, Texas
“As for the practice tests, they were an invaluable asset in preparation for the test. They simulated the test so well. It allowed me to fail my first time for $50 rather than $400. Passed the first time on the real test. Thanks.”
Tim Ryan, Ryan Companies
“I took the LEED-AP exam this past Friday. I would like it to be know that your service (the videos and Test) directly contributed to me passing the test.”
Alan Neely, LEED AP, Pittsburgh Corning
“Thank you for your LEED Practice Test. I passed the exam with a score of 187/200.”
T V Padmanabhan
“The practice exams were vital to my understanding of the material & comfort with the exam procedures. I was nervous going in since I had only gotten in the 70% range on my first attempts of the practice exams. But, I retook them all & got a 90%-96% on my second tries! I also used other various practice exams & they were all much different than the actual exam. The closest by far were the GBES simulations! Thanks again!”
Rebeca Jane, Denver, Colorado
“I purchased your flash cards and practice exams to prepare for the LEED AP exam. I found them to be very beneficial to my success in passing the exam the first time around. Thanks!”
Daniel L. Rich, Architect
“I passed the exam today on the first attempt thanks to the help of the GBES sample tests! A friend told me about these tests about 5 days before the exam; I signed up immediately and used the sample tests extensively in my preparation. I probably couldn’t have passed without these tests. I’m letting everyone know in my company that is preparing the test to use your website!”
“I just wanted to let you know that the site really helped me very much. They helped prepared me for the format of the test, and to learn the content as well. I passed the exam this morning on the first try with a score of 185. I found the questions on the exam to be very tricky, and I had to really analyze what they were asking. Thanks again,”
Kimberly Bolt, IIDA, RID, LEED AP
“I took my LEED-CI exam yesterday and passed with a 186. I know I would not have done it without the experience I got from your practice exams. They prepared me for what to expect for question format and just how many small details to study. An EXCELLENT RESOURCE! A must-have for anybody who wants to pass their exam. Thank you!!!”
“I passed my exam with a score of 184! I got 100% in the ‘Implement LEED process’ section of the exam. GBES really made the difference. It helped me to not only prepare for the exam, but to deepen my knowledge on LEED CI in general. Thanks again!”
Jennifer Taylor Birks, LEED AP, Whitney Bailey Cox & Magnani
“I just passed my LEED AP! I’m not sure I could have done it without having used your practice exams as a guide for what to study and how to approach questions. The test is undoubtedly difficult due to the nature of their question structure. Having taken your practice exams gave me the ability to more clearly understand the what to expect and what content was important. The test taking experience was invaluable and I’m glad I had a simulated test experience to gauge my ability before taking the real the test. I would recommend your site to anyone taking this exam. I got a 191 out of 200, thanks for the help.”
Bob Schrock, PPG Industries

Mike Alisea, HBW Group Construction
“I really don’t think I could have passed the LEED NC Exam without using your on-line practice tests. I purchased the package on a Saturday and passed the exam on the following Friday. Excellent tool and really pointed me very quickly to the areas of the LEED Reference Guide that I needed to dedicate more study to. I hadn’t taken a exam in 26 Years.”
Jon (Old Guy)-Palo Pinto, Texas.
“Thank you for the great prep available with your online practice tests. I passed the first time!”
“I passed with a 178 the practice exams were helpful as the foundation to learning ALL the LEED criteria. Read (study) the reference guide cover to cover and you will be better off when you take the test. ”
Michael S. Lugo-Thompson LEED AP, Barnhart, Inc.
“I know I would not have been successful in passing the LEED exam without the use of the LEED test prep exams. The practice exams are in the same format as the actual LEED exam, which I found to be extremely helpful. I was very pleased to have passed the exam on my first try. I will certainly recommend your site to anyone attempting to pass the LEED exam. Thank you very much for offering this product.”
Christine Manola, Opus West Management Corp.
“I cannot begin to say how much your prep courses and flash cards helped me prepare for the EB test. I searched everywhere on line and no-one else even came close to offering the quantity and quality of test prep information for the LEED EB Exam tract. I passed a few hours ago with a 192!! I know that I would not even have come close to passing without the practice tests! Thanks again!”
Keith A. Crosby, ADP Service Corp.
“When I took my first practice test I scored only 46%, two weeks later I was up to 89%. That weekend I took the real one and passed it the first time. Without your tests that would have been IMPOSSIBLE!, I’m recommending them to all the people from my office that are planning to become LEED APs.”
Patricia Fundora, Miami, Florida
“I passed today with a 181! Your sample exams were great and I passed the first time. I could not have done it without you!!! I am telling all of my co-workers about your site. It worked for me.”
Elizabeth, Aurora, Colorado
“Found out about these mock exams the day before the exam. There are four prep exams for $50. I highly recommend these. I do not think that I would have passed if it wasn’t for these. I took each exam three times in the 24 hours before my exam, That is close to 1000 problems.”
Janet, Dallas, Texas
I couldn’t have passed without this product. I discovered it 5 days before my exam so the instant access was perfect. Taking these practice exams gave me more insight into LEED than after months of studying.
Ryan K., Burns & McDonnell
I scored 192 out of 200 on my first try and could NOT have done it without the GBES!
Jessica R., San Francisco Planning Department
I could not have passed the LEED-AP test without the GBES on-line test. The test were great simulators and helped me so much. I would take the practice test and then print the questions I got wrong and review them in the book. The prep test helped to show my weaknesses and let me know what I needed to study more of prior to the test. Your questions are very tricky just like the real questions so it was very helpful to have prepared myself for that type of question. Thanks again for helping me pass on my first try and I have told everyone about you!!!
Brandie S., The Brick Industry Association
I am in the Communications Industry, so the LEED-NC was all new to me. I also Project Manage, so receiving my LEED AP was very important to me and my company. I can honestly say that if I had not taken the practice exams offered by Green Building Education Services, I would not have passed. It bettered prepared me for the type of questions, wording of questions, and the test format.
Heather C., Schmidt Consulting Group
I have no doubt that the materials presented in this product was very instrumental in my passing the LEED exam(first time). The explanation of the answers whether right or wrong made all the difference to me. I had some materials presented by our company during our training sessions but there was no explanation as to why the answers were incorrect. So, I do credit this program with getting me prepared with the right information and in a very realistic format as the actual test. I have already informed others of this information(after I passed my exam of course!). I will state that while taking all of the study groups of questions, the comment of making at least 80% had me worried going into the LEED exam because I never scored higher than 60%, but I still passed. But without those test questions and the flash cards…no way would I have passed. Thanks.
Michael L., The Lathrop Co
The online practice exams were so helpful! They really gave me a good idea of what the test would be like. I don’t think I would have passed the LEED AP exam if I had not used this website!
Ainsley T., Louisiana State University
I have already referred about 10 people to the online tests…
Leticia F., SWBR Architects
I have already recommended it to other members of my company. Couldn’t have passed without the practice tests. Thanks!!!

I truly believe I could not have passed the test without using the online practice exams. I have already been recommending it to others.
Kara W., JGA
Your service was fantastic! The test was very difficult for me, but I passed on the first time. There was no chance for me without your materials. I didn’t just pass, but aced two of the sections. Highly recommended you to all my friends.
Gregory Falco, Student, Cornell
The computer-based exam questions played a major factor in my success on passing with a LEED score of 189 on my 1st attempt. Computer-based questions provide an opportunity to get comfortable with the testing “pace” and gave me confidence to go into the test knowing that time was not going to be an issue.
Vinnie M., Charles Perry Construction, Inc.
My company currently has about 10 other people that will be taking the test in the next couple of months. I strongly suggested that they purchase your product to help make sure they are prepared to pass the test the first time. Several of them have purchased it and have seen the benefits. I know I could not have passed the first time without the product.
Bryan G., EMCOR Service
I know this makes me sound like the dullest tool in the shed. But I took the LEED EB V2.0 twice and missed both times by two points. After using your products I passed. that was all I asked. By the way I have a college degree, decades of experience in HVAC and studied my *** off.
The practice tests were a great way to realize the types of questions that were going to be on the LEED exam, plus what I needed more work on. I recommend it to everyone that I speak with who is considering taking the exam.
Melanie H., Holden Design Group
The GBES simulator played a vital role in my preparation to become LEED accredited. I will strongly recommend and have already recommended that others take the simulator.
Brian M., Hunt Construction Group
In retrospect, the practice tests were very accurate. I was worried that they would not replicate the exam, but they did. I wound up with a 194 and I would thank this website for significantly helping my preparation.
Josh H., Gryphon Construction, LLC.
I refer your website to everyone I know who is planning on taking the test. It was extremely helpful! Thank you!
Amy F., RTA Architects.com
GBES really took me to the next level! That’s what I needed to pass the Green Building Exam for New Construction!!!!
Eduardo A., Lebolo Construction Management
The online tests are great. I was shocked at how close to the exam it really was. When I was practicing I thought some of the questions were crazy, turns out I was wrong and I was well prepared.
Jennifer H., Shapiro Architects
I was able to pass the exam on my first try with a score of 190. Being able to use the practice test gave me the edge I needed.
Blair R., SBER
I have recommended your test prep to at least a dozen LEEP AP trainees. Excellent design, particularly the one that provides the answers and a description of why other alternatives are not correct answers.
Kevin M., Federal Practice Group
Great customer service! I can definitely recommend GBES to our LEED coordinator.
James F., Honeywell
Amazing product. it Helped so much and i will and have recommended to many people. Thanks
William S., Colin Construction
Prep Exams were instrumental in preparing for the Exam
Paul P., Honeywell
The exam was an enormous help in preparing me for the real exam. The format and questions are very similar. Thanks!
Natalia H., Gresham Smith & Partners
I think LEED exam prep is one of the best resources you could provide. The tests are hard but give you a solid preview of what’s to come for the actual LEED accreditation test.
Tennece L., Walsh Construction
Using the practice tests was the most helpful method of studying for me. The detailed answer key directing where the answer can be found helped me review the relevant material without getting bogged down in the extraneous information. The tests helped me make my study time extremely efficient.
Lori T., Element National Management
Your flash cards were a Godsend. They go over Exactly what you need to pass the test. – The first time. I only has 2 weeks to study and I passed on the first try with a 193! The online practice tests were hard. I think I did better on the real exam – that is what you need.
Ann J., Heat Transfer Solutions
The exam prep was invaluable. I would not have scored as high as I did without it.
Jeff G., Limbach Company
Fine products, excellent service. I am leading my company in getting staff LEED AP and I recommended your products to the entire class.

The product is easy to use and gives you a feel for the real exam.
John D., Siemens Building Technologies, Inc.
The practice exams mirrored the actual test in their difficulty, format and content. This is a powerful tool for preparing for and passing the LEED Exam. I passed with a 180!
Miles J., Skanska
I love your products. Thank you.
Mark S., Da-Lite Screen Company
The practice exams were very instrumental in helping me see what areas of study that I was lacking in. I took each test multiple times until my percentages were consistently over 90%. I felt very prepared for the format and types of questions on the actual exam. This is a great study tool for people who benefit from practice exams.
Keith C., Worn Jerabek Architects
Great format. Very similar to the exam. I passed on the first try!
Kathy C., Nalco
The LEED NC exam prep on-line practice exams were vastly helpful in alleviating some of my testing anxiety. I really felt like I knew what to expect because of the practice exams, and my expectations were confirmed when I sat down to take the real exam.
Edie S., U+B Architecture and Design, Inc.
The computer format helped tremendously.
Jennifer G., Thomas, Miller & Partners
Good products. I was able to get some solid benefit out of the flash cards and online practice exams.
Anthony M., Boise State University
The greenprep exam definitely was valuable. I recommend to all those who would like to pass on the 1st try.
I am VERY satisfied with your practice exams, and I feel that if it were not for these, I would NOT have passed on the first attempt. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SUCH A FANTASTIC AND USEFUL PRODUCT. Your practice exam questions made the actual exam seem easy, and thus, I knew that your efforts here were achieved.
I thought the mock exams were a key base of my preparation.
Bob R., E M Harris Construction
Great format. I especially liked to be able to choose between “correct answers at end of the test” and “correct answers with explanations immediately following each question. The explanations were excellent and references to the USGBC manual were especially helpful.
I have already recommended this website to all my colleagues and coworkers. I found the practice exams and the explanations very valuable tools in studying for the exam. I wish I had found out about your website sooner!
Kathleen D., Bowman Consulting, Ltd.
Excellent Study materials. Really like the Online Tests. Very well done, indeed. Thank you.
Tony S., Johnson Controls, Inc.
I passed with a 177 and scored highest in the section where the flashcards really applied! They were a huge help to my studying!

Shrikant S., Purdue University
The exam format is excellent as it prepared me for the exam method, as well as information.
George R., Rudolph and Sletten
For me, these practice exams were indispensable. They are an excellent product.
Great course. I thought that I could master the material by just studying the LEED Reference Guide-NC, but the practice exam opened my eyes to the reality that there is no factoid in the Reference Guide too obscure to put on the exam. The flash cards were a big help in learning the standards.
John M., DLA Piper LLP
“Passed yesterday with 182 score. Your program was an essential aid in my preparation. Thank you very much.”

Experiencing Success As a LEED Professional
By Pam Mendez – a GBES customer who has been able to archive success with the help of LEED accreditations
In May 2011, I graduated from Farmingdale State College with a bachelor’s degree in engineering. Prior to graduation, I was an intern at a consulting engineering firm. I was confident that through my internship I would be offered a fulltime position upon graduating, but unfortunately I was not.
That’s when I realized I needed to differentiate myself from other recent graduates.
As an intern, I learned about LEED and I decided there was no better time to take the LEED Green Associate exam. With this new accreditation added to my resume I began applying to engineering and construction management firms.
Four months after graduating I received an offer for a position at WSP, a global consulting engineering firm. And I’d like to think the offer was thanks to my newly earned LEED credential.
In my role, I work with all of the various LEED rating systems, and I realized it would be beneficial to pursue the next level of accreditation, the LEED AP with specialty. I am now accredited as a LEED AP in Interior Design and Construction.
My work with LEED involves managing the project team and the entire LEED process, from the project’s initial registration through the certification process. I am responsible for ensuring:
- the sustainable design requirements are incorporated into the design phase
- the various green elements are actually carried into the construction phase
- the finished building meets all of the green design elements
I am also responsible for coordinating LEED project meetings, providing LEED reports to keep the team updated and on-track, completing calculations, and reviewing project documentation and submittals for LEED requirements.
I currently manage over 20 LEED projects, and in my time at WSP I have successfully certified four projects, which have met or exceeded certification goals. I have also had the opportunity to work as the LEED administrator for some of our top clients, such as North Shore LIJ, Yale and Long Island Power Authority.
Through LEED, I have furthered my knowledge of building design and construction. I have learned several sustainable strategies such as selecting water efficient fixtures, installing products that promote indoor environmental quality and the importance of designing HVAC systems which not only save energy, but enhance occupant comfort.
