One of our LEED NC 2.2 students was selected to take the LEED AP BD+C beta exam. He took the beta exams for LEED Green Associate and LEED Building, Design, and Construction. Next week, he takes the LEED NC 2.2 exam, just to be sure he earns the credential, since he will not get his beta exam score for a few weeks. The main point of his observations confirm that the LEED AP BD+C exam is no joke. There are many calculations, and the exam really tests a candidate's knowledge of the rating system.  Read more: LEED AP Exam Feedback: BD+C Beta Exam »

RIP SGT Cory Johnson

This is Chris. One of my old soldiers from when I was an officer in the Army passed away last week. His name was SGT Cory Johnson, and although I’m sure he’ll never make any official statistic, he’s a casualty of the war as far as I’m concerned. They’re still waiting on an autopsy report, but it looks like he went out partying, came back, passed out, and never woke up. He was definitely drinking, and I’m willing to bet the autopsy will show that he had drugs in his system.  Read more: RIP SGT Cory Johnson »

The intent seems to be to maintain the integrity of the standard.  Read more: LEED Exam Pass Rates Speculation »
