Phew! I did it! I passed the LEED exam Monday June 22 and can now add that credential to my box of tricks! It was so greuling; 3 other designer friends and I had a study group for about 10 weeks prior, and I dragged that reference manual around with me everywhere. I wore out three highlighters!!! But I passed with flying colors and now understand the LEED process so much better. As a member of the USGBC (United States Green Building Council), I will stay on top of new efforts and products for sustainable design.
