True Testimonials

I would just like to thank each and every one of you who have personally thanked me for my hard work on this website. I created it to help people like yourself, and it’s your kind words that inspire me and keep me updating the website every chance I have for others – even long after I earned my own LEED AP credential on March 28, 2008. I decided to place this testimonial page here not only as a thank you to those who have put in their hard work and thanked me for mine, but also for those of you who have yet to take your LEED AP Exam and may need some inspiration and/or confirmation that since you are here visiting intheLEED, you’ve come to the right place. The following are all real:

“Dear Mr. Pat, Thank you very much for providing me the very helpful information on preparation of LEED Exam. I have passed the exam with 189/200 in June my first attempt. intheleed was a great tool during my studies.” – Anvar


“Hey Pat! Thanks for doing this. Your sense of contributing in this way to the promotion of green building is inspiring.” – Elyce


“Your website is an awesome resource of information relative to LEED and the AP exam. I would not have passed the exam if I hadn’t come across your website during my studying period. I only studied for about two (2) weeks and In The LEED helped me jump start and focus my efforts. I took the LEED AP for Existing Building (EB) and even though alot of the content on your webpage relates to NC (New Construction), it was still very beneficial and contributed to my successful passing of the exam. Thanks again for the great compilation of LEED information and community of LEED professionals that you’ve created thru the Internet. Cheers !” – Chris
