Poorly done course video!

This is a WELL AP Exam guide "for dummies" - a very basic introduction in how to prepare for the exam and what documentatioin to study. See comment from Akos Brandecker below.
I recommend this course to anyone that wants to take the WELL AP exam and do not know where to start or how to plan his studies.
The course is very basic but it takes you through all the steps from registration to certification in a very pedagogic way

Very good introductory video. I recently took and passed the WELL AP exam. This is not an easy exam. There is a tremendous amount of information to study. Memorization is also key here in retaining data on the 500+ requirements.

A few basic items I would like to add:

1. Do not ignore the health statistics presented throughout the WELL Building Standard. Be prepared to recall that information. It is just as important as the technical requirements.

2. Also understand the calculations throughout the WELL Building Standard. Many features and/or requirements have square footage/occupant minimums or maximums. Get to know those as much as possible.

3. The webinar on the WELL Building Standard had some outdated language, which was updated for the September, 2015 version.

Again, this is a very challenging exam due to the vast amount of information presented in the WELL Building Standard, and related documents. I read it again and again (and again...etc.) until I had a good grasp of all of the features, parts and requirements, as well as the certification and verification processes.

Hopefully, we will see WELL-specific courses to fulfill the WELL AP CMP.

Thank you.

Hi Jeffrey, could you share with me which guides or study materials did you refer to for the preparation of WELL AP examination? Where can I purchase the appropriate study materials and guides?
Thank you!

Hi Sadhana,
Thank you for your reply. The material I used to study for the WELL AP exam are all on the IWBI's website. These included the 2015 WELL Building Standard, the WELL Certification Guide, and the Performance and Verification Guide. All of the information needed to pass the exam are in these documents. I did not buy any books or mock exams. It's a lot of information, but if you read the WELL Building Standard over and over, you will have most, if not all, of the information you need to pass. Know all of the technical details of each feature as well as the health statistics. They're nearly equally important to know. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask. Good luck!!

Thank you Jeffrey for your prompt and detailed response and time. Really appreciate it.
I will go through the information you have mentioned and should I have any further queries I will get in touch with you again.

This is a basic summary of the resources available and steps required to successfully pass the WELL AP exam. The course introduces the registration process, exam scheduling and the main study guides available from the IWBI.

The presenter also provides some useful study tips based on his own experience of preparing for the exam, including how to structure your time and which areas of the standard to focus on. This is not a training course to prepare you for the exam but could provide a roadmap to help guide you through your studies. I would primarily recommend this course for those unfamiliar with the LEED exam process.

Note that the resources mentioned are for the WELL AP exam based on the September 2015 version of the standard and don’t include the May 2016 WELL Addenda or the WELL Performance Verification Guidebook which may become part of the exam curriculum in the future.
