What others are saying about “LEED Green Associate Exam Guide”…

“Finally! A comprehensive study tool for LEED Green Associate Prep!

“I took the 1-day Green LEED Green Associate course and walked away with a power point binder printed in very small print-which was missing MUCH of the required information (although I didn’t know it at the time). I studied my little heart out and took the test, only to fail it by 1 point. Turns out I did NOT study all the material I needed to in order to pass the test. I found this book, read it, marked it up, retook the test, and passed it with a 95%. Look, we all know the LEED Green Associate exam is new and the resources for study are VERY limited. This one’s the VERY best out there right now. I highly recommend it.”

Does your book have too much information for LEED Green Associate Exam?

Other books on LEED GA Exam will become almost useless instantly once you pass the exam because they are NOT designed as a reference book, while my book, “LEED Green Associate Exam Guide” (3rd Edition, ISBN:  9780984374137), is an exam guide AND a LEED reference book. 

If you feel my book has too much information, there is a very simple solution:

When you read the technical section of my book, start each credit category by reading the summary table and mnemonics at the end of each credit category. This way, you have a very clear “road map” (the summary table) and will not get caught up in the technical details and get lost.  You can focus on the “Credit Path” portions of each prerequisite and credit and read them 2 or 3 times…You should be able to pass the LEED Green Associate Exam easily and on the first try…
