The new WELL Accredited Professional credential signifies familiarity with wellness concepts and the WELL Building Standard. Earning the credential isn’t easy.

The best and only WELL AP study guide you’ll ever need

The key to passing any multiple choice exam is knowing exactly what to study, and just as importantly, knowing what not to study.

While other exam prep companies simply regurgitate the WELL standard, GreenStep Education, led by Alex Spilger, takes a different approach. While other exam prep resources focus on quantity, Alex focuses on quality. Our study guide and practice exams take you right to the point..

Rather than trying to commit the entire WELL standard to memory, just follow our helpful study shortcuts. We’ll show you:

  • The shortcut to keeping track of the 102 WELL features (i.e., which thresholds you need to memorize and which ones you can skip)
  • The one or two key facts for each WELL requirement you’re most likely to be tested on
  • The details of WELL language you need to memorize, and the ones you’ll be able to infer from context when taking the exam

When you purchase Alex’s study guide from BuildingGreen, you’ll get:

  • The WELL AP Exam Study Guide: 82 easy-to-digest pages of WELL details, including study tips and day-of-exam preparation
  • Four full-length practice exams, with 100 questions each. Our exam simulator gives you instant scoring and feedback on each question so you can immediately learn from your mistakes.
  • Four bonus study matrices that help you simplify the most complex topics on the exam and commit key facts to memory
  • 100% money-back guarantee if you are not fully satisfied. Use our guide and you’ll pass the exam on your first try—we guarantee it.
  • Continual updates: whenever the WELL AP exam gets updated, we update our guide and practice exams. Customers always get access to the most up-to-date version. Currently our study materials are up-to-date through 2020.

Praise for the WELL AP Exam Study Guide

“Alex, your study guide was a game changer. The WELL Building Standard can be really overwhelming, but GreenStep saved me a lot of study time by focusing on precisely what I needed to learn, filtering out the many extraneous details. I passed with a high score on the first try, and HOK is now using GreenStep as our go-to resource for the WELL exam!”

Mara Baum, AIA, LEED Fellow, EDAC, WELL AP, Vice President, Healthcare Sustainable Design Leader – HOK

“The GreenStep Study Guide broke the large quantity of detailed information contained within the WELL Standard into digestible chunks, reducing the time required to prepare for the exam by at least half. The practice exams were particularly helpful. The actual day of the exam was stress-free and I was pleased to score 196 out of 200. Another colleague on my team has since passed—3 of 3 so far!”

Lora Brill, WELL AP, Associate Director, JLL

“Alex, I passed the WELL AP exam. Your materials and exams were the only thing I studied. Your program works. Thanks a lot!”

“BuildingGreen’s WELL AP study guide was the perfect resource as it took the 250-page standard document and summarized it down to something actually manageable.”

Allen Schaffer, LEED AP BD+C, WELL AP, Director of Sustainable Design – MOODY•NOLAN


“I took the WELL AP exam and scored 195. I wish to thank you for the concise study material and practice exams. Your guide explained things perfectly and your exams were bang on and helped me a lot in the short time I had to prepare for the exam.”

Karthik Narayan, LEED AP BD+C, LEED AP O+M, WELL AP – Director, En3 Sustainability Solutions

“The GreenStep guide was everything you said it would be. I passed the exam with very strong score. With my credential and knowledge of WELL I’m glad I can speak with credibility to potential clients.”

Daniel Overbey, AIA, WELL AP, LEED AP BD+C, ID+C, O+M, Director of Sustainability / Associate – Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf

“The GreenStep study guide is well-tuned to working professionals and the amount of study time we have. It included the crucial information, and was helpful in emphasizing only the statistics and data that would be likely on the exam. The practice exams were invaluable! I followed the study recommendations and once I’d read through the guide a couple of times I focused on the practice exams exclusively. It was helpful to get immediate feedback with the correct responses after each question, and allowed me to go back to the guide for refreshers only on the questions I’d missed. I never got 100% correct but I was confident taking the exam, which I passed with a 193/200.”

Margaret Montgomery, FAIA, LEED AP BD+C, WELL AP, Principal – NBBJ
