How do I prepare for a LEED AP specialty exam?

The first thing you should do is download the candidate handbook from the GBCI webpage for the exam that you want to take. The handbook will tell you important information about what is covered on the exam, as well as test taking policies.

Not all of them are live yet. In fact, only LEED for Homes and LEED for O&M are available at the moment. BD&C and ID+C are scheduled for this summer (2009), and ND in 2010.

You should also purchase a LEED Reference Guide for the exam you’re taking as well. It’s where most of the questions on the exam come from, and is the guide that you will be using when certifying a LEED project in the future.

In addition, you are always free to use the information on greenexamacademy.com to help you along the way.  On the homepage you’ll find information about your specific exam, including summaries, tips and charts to help you organize all of the information for you.
