Hello Al Zamer! Thank you for your interest in the LEED Green Associate Credential. Since each candidate seeking a LEED Green Associate credential has a unique combination of knowledge and experience, it is difficult to recommend the definitive study materials one would need to pass the exam. A great place to start are the references in the LEED Green Associates Candidate Handbook http://www.usgbc.org/resources/leed- v4-green-associate-candidate-handbook. All of the references listed are free and available online, with the exception of the LEED Core Concepts Guide, a resource which most exam candidates find to be very helpful. Since the primary sources for the development of the LEED® Professional Exams are the LEED Rating Systems, a detailed understanding of these are necessary for success.

Hi Sixing, the exam translation aid for the LEED Green Associate exam is available in the following languages: Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish. When a translation aid is selected, the exam will be shown in English and the translated language. The translation aid is meant to help someone with English as a second language understand the test questions, but it may not offer a direct translation. When you register for the exam, you will have the option to select a different language. If a language other than English is selected, you will receive a translation aid during the exam.

Hi Sally, thank you for your interest in earning your LEED Green Associate and LEED AP BD+C credentials. LEED AP BD+C study materials will certainly help you prepare for the LEED Green Associate exam. However, the LEED Green Associate exam covers more content than just the LEED BD+C rating system, such as LEED Green Associate tasks, LEED processes and credit categories, other LEED rating systems, and critical points on green building. Please refer to the LEED Green Associate handbook (http://www.usgbc.org/resources/leed-v4-green-associate-candidate- handbook) for a general description of exam content areas for the LEED Green Associate exam. Since each candidate seeking a LEED credentials has a unique combination of knowledge and experience, it is difficult to recommend the definitive study materials one would need to pass either exam. A great place to start is with the LEED Green Associates Candidate Handbook http://www.usgbc.org/resources/leed-v4-green-associate- candidate-handbook. The references listed in the Handbook are free and available online, with the exception of the LEED Core Concepts Guide, which is a very popular resource for people preparing for the LEED Green Associate exam. Since the primary sources for the development of the LEED Professional Exams are the LEED Rating Systems, including the LEED BD+C rating system, a detailed understanding of these are necessary for success.

1- is there a book that will have more than one practice exam?

2- regarding the printable flash cards mention in the hard copy of the Preparation Guide, LEED v4,: how many flash cards are there in the book? how can we print them from the book? 3- can I print the e-document of the Core Concept Study Guide when i purchase it? in other words, is it a pdf printable version? the reason i am asking, because I prefer to read from a book, but at the same time I don't want to go through shipping issues mention by other exam candidates on this page. 4- again, are the digital resources mentioned in the Study Bundle printable? 5- I live close to washington DC, does the USGBC have a book store that carry the proposed books in their web site.

Here are other USGBC endorsed products to help you prepare for your LEED Green Associate exam:

2- regarding the printable flash cards mention in the hard copy of the Preparation Guide, LEED v4,: how many flash cards are there in the book? how can we print them from the book?

LEED AP® BD+C Exam Study Cards are a useful tool for learning the concepts assessed by the LEED AP Building Design and Construction (BD+C) specialty exam. Created by an accomplished LEED® Fellow™, the 400 questions and answers cover LEED concepts, the LEED v4 BD+C rating system credit categories, plus basic prerequisite and credit calculations. The study cards are divided into the following eight categories:

LEED Concepts, Innovation, and Regional Priority Integrative Process Location and Transportation Sustainable Sites Water Efficiency Energy and Atmosphere Materials and Resources Indoor Environmental Quality

LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation Guide, LEED v4 Edition | U.S. Green Building Council

T he flash cards are hard copy flashcards. There may be a code in the book that allows you to go online and then print them but we do not have access to that code.

3- can I print the e-document of the Core Concept Study Guide when i purchase it? in other words, is it a pdf printable version? the reason i am asking, because I prefer to read from a book, but at the same time I don't want to go through shipping issues mention by other exam candidates on this page.

It is a PDF. Please note: the book is currently not on back order so you should not experience any issues with purchasing the book online.

4- again, are the digital resources mentioned in the Study Bundle printable?

They are in PDF format.

5- I live close to washington DC, does the USGBC have a book store that carry the proposed books in their web site.

USGBC does not have a bookstore in Washington D.C. so you'll need to purchase through our online store.

Thank you for your interest in LEED credentials! The basic credential is LEED Green Associate. A great place to start are the references in the LEED Green Associates Candidate Handbook (http://cn.usgbc.org/resources/leed-green-associate-candidate-handbook-chinese). All of the listed references are free, with the exception of the LEED Core Concepts Guide and LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation Guide (http://cn.usgbc.org/resources/study-bundle-leed-green-associate-exam-preparation-guide-leed-v4-edition-and-leed-core-con), a resource which most exam candidates find to be very helpful. Since the primary sources for the development of the LEED® Professional Exams are the LEED Rating Systems, a detailed understanding of these are necessary for success. After the above resources have been explored and studied, most candidates seek the structure of study guides, online or in-person courses and practice exams to further their understanding of the information. Others may start with a course or study guide and explore the resources in detail after.

The following resources will be helpful to you, which offer a route for those who are looking for a place to start.

Thank you for your interest in the LEED Green Associate Credential. Since each candidate seeking a LEED Green Associate credential has a

unique combination of knowledge and experience, it is difficult to recommend the definitive study materials one would need to pass the exam. In addition to the LEED Associate exam preparation guide in this article, a great place to start are the references in the LEED Green Associates Candidate Handbook http://www.usgbc.org/resources/leed-v4-green-associate-candidate-handbook. All of the references listed are free and available online, with the exception of the LEED Core Concepts Guide, a resource which most exam candidates find to be very helpful. Since the primary sources for the development of the LEED® Professional Exams are the LEED Rating Systems, a detailed understanding of these are necessary for success. A great place to start is to download the introductory sections to the reference guide for free here (scroll down to

After these resources have been

explored and studied, most candidates seek the structure of study guides such as the one in this article (found here http://www.usgbc.org/store/products/publications), online or in-person courses (found here http://www.usgbc.org/education-at-usgbc/listing/study) and practice exams to further their understanding of the information.

Thank you for your interest in earning a LEED Green Associate credential. Because I work on the credentialing team, I cannot tell you that any exam preparation course or materials will off a shortcut to becoming a LEED Green Associate. However, I strongly recommend that you review the references used to write the exam and confirm your exam preparation covers all the test specifications listed in the candidate handbook:

http://www.usgbc.org/resources/leed-v4-green-associate-candidate-handbook. That said, GBES is a USGBC Education Partner, and we have worked closely with them on continuing education courses. We hope that you will find their exam preparation materials to be equally useful in achieving your professional goals. Finally, You may want to confirm with other colleagues about the materials and methods they found useful. We generally recommend that the candidate handbook be a primary resource in shaping your study plan. We cannot recommend a specific timeline, because there are so many different levels of experience and expose to green building concepts. Be sure to master the concepts before you take the test.

Greetings,

Although I understand that it is self-paced, approximately how many hours does is it take to complete the LEED Green Associate v4 Exam Prep (On-demand)? Some friends and I are planning to become Green Associates and would like to spend a week-end or two completing the course

together in a "workshop". Is this feasible time wise? Also, will the course be sufficient or will we need additional materials to be fully prepared for the exam?

T hank you for your interest in becoming a LEED credential holder. Please check out the “Which LEED specialty is right for me?” portion here:

http://www.usgbc.org/credentials. If you need more information about the rating systems, please also consider consulting the following article in addition to the credentialing information: http://www.usgbc.org/articles/rating-system-selection-guidance. This webpage will list the current prices for exams.

The green building industry distinguish their practice in a number of ways, and the benefits of earning a LEED credential will vary widely. LEED credentials allow professionals to demonstrate their mastery of their related specialty. For example, it might be helpful for an urban planner to have the LEED AP Neighborhood Development credential. However, their clients or firms may also be looking for education, professional experience, LEED project experience or other criteria. An excellent point of reference is whether your current or target firm will be certifying any LEED projects soon.

In short, it really varies quite widely. Consider how others are using it and how employers are valuing it. Please also consider checking out the experience of seasoned, distinguished LEED professionals: http://www.usgbc.org/people/all/leed-fellow. Or check out job postings for your target company or countries. Searching for "LEED" in one of your target websites may give you an idea of how well a LEED credential may benefit professionals.

Good luck!

It doesn't work. It replies saying 'Phone number must be only numbers and no spaces' even writing it with no spaces and properly. It's not possible to order it. When is LEED staff going to solve this and make available an ebook of LEED GA Exam Preparation a Guide?

Education Manager, Healthy Buildings International, Inc.

In our past experience, teaching the Green Associate prep course for LEEDv2009 - the Core Concepts and LEED Green Associate Study guides

provide a good starting point for exam preparation. We understand that this will be similar for the LEEDv4 Green Associate exam as well.

The exam requires an understanding of terms used, metrics defined, and referenced standards for the LEED for New Construction, Homes, and Existing Buildings rating systems. As such, it is very important to understand the Glossary of Terms and Intro sections of the LEED for Homes and O+M rating systems (as referenced in the Green Associate Candidate Handbook). This should be supplemented with practice exams to prepare you for the exam format.

In short - you can get away with studying from this Study Guide, the Core Concepts and the free Primary References listed in the Candidate

Handbook. An understanding of the New Construction Rating System, LEEDOnline, and practice exams will help significantly.

Thanks,

Ravi
