LEED AP ID+C Exam Study Guide

Step 1: Register for your LEED AP ID+C Exam

Congratulations on wanting a new credential. Registering is easy! Login to your USGBC account and click credentials. You will then view a list of your current accreditations and the exams you are eligible to take. We recommend a good study window that amounts to about 1-2 months of dedication. This will give you enough time to prepare for the LEED AP exam fully and pass on your first try.


Step 2: Studying for your LEED ID+C Exam

The exam contains 100 multiple-choice questions, and you are given two hours to complete it. A weighted score between 125-200 is awarded based on your correct answers. A passing score is anything over 170 points. Your answer to each question may or may not count in your end score based on statistics being gathered by the USGBC. We recommend marking hard questions on your LEED Interior Design and Construction exam for review. You can always come back to the question later and check your answer.

Some questions on your ID+C exam may be difficult, and you may not remember. A good trick is to skip the question and save it for the end of the exam. Completing more questions may trigger your memory, and you will remember the correct answer to the hard question. Make sure you review all your answers before submitting your AP exam.
