Step 1: Register for your LEED AP O+M Exam
Accessing your exam registration is easy. Simply login to your USGBC account and click “Credentials”. This will load a list of current exams that you meet the prerequisites on. We recommend registering for your LEED exam 2-3 months out of when you start studying. This will give you enough time to fully prepare for the difficulty of the LEED exams. With a proper study plan and the right study guide, have no fear! You will pass the first time.
Step 2: Studying for your LEED O+M Exam
All LEED® Professional exams are scored between 125 and 200 scale system. The O+M Exam is no different from the other LEED credentials like the BD+C exam. Each question has the potential to be graded at the discretion of the USGBC and GBCI based upon other O+M exam candidate's answers. At the end of the exam, you will learn your score.

The exam contains 100 questions, including the 15 pretest questions.
If you run into a particular hard question on the O+M Exam, do not panic. Simply skip the question and come back to it at a later point. Some questions during the rest of the exam may "jog" your memory. For each question, you have more than ample amount of time to complete the question. Always spend some time reviewing your AP Exam to make sure you have answered every question.
