Step 1: Register for your BD+C Exam

Registering for your exam can be completed in a few simple steps. After logging into your USGBC account click “Credentials”. You will see a list of current credentials you posses as well as when exams you are eligible to take. We recommend scheduling your exam 2-3 months from your start date. This will give you enough time to practice and pass your exam the first time.

This is our easy-to-read guide covering topics under the USGBC LEED AP BD+C exam. This guide will attempt to remove the background information that you can easily find directly on the USGBC website to help you filter out the “NEED to Know Information” to pass your exam.

All LEED® Professional exams are scored between 125 and 200 scale system. The BD+C Exam is no different. Remember, depending upon data collected from numerous candidates each question you answer may or may not count in your overall passing score. Your score will be displayed instantly after your exam unless the USGBC or GBCI has indicated differently.
