I am so happy to tell you that i have just
came out from the Prometric Centre here in
Athens. I have just past the test with 189
and I am really excited!
Thank you for your help. At least, here i am
one of the first v4 LEED Green Associate!
- Lila Y.
I used Poplar Network's material to study
for (and pass) the LEED Green Associate
exam, and I found the material very
straightforward and easily digestible.
