This was a good course. However is there a way to see the answers, particularly those which were gotten wrong so as to know what are the correct answers?

Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately there is no way to review answers but, this is something that we will take under consideration for future development.

Is it worth taking both of the "10 things to know" courses?

Director of LEED Support, U.S. Green Building Council

While these two courses do have some overlap, there are also distinct points made by both. Also, they were created by two separate organizations that each bring unique perspectives.
