Sinopsis: This is the old version. You should buy the new version, "LEED GreenAssociate Exam Guide (LEED v4 GA) (ISBN-13: 9781612650180)", at
Pass the LEED Green Associate Exam, Get Your Building LEED Certified, Fight Global Warming and Save Money!
Starting on December 1, 2011, GBCI began to draw LEED Green Associate Examquestions from the second edition of Green Building and LEED Core ConceptsGuide. We have incorporated thislatest information in our book, and changed our book title to LEED GreenAssociate Exam Guide.
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is one of the most important trends of development and is revolutionizing the construction industry. It has gained tremendous momentum and has a profound impact on our environment.
From this book, you will learn how to:
1. Pass the LEED Green Associate Exam.
2. Use LEED exam preparation strategies, study methods, tips, suggestions, mnemonics, and exam tactics to improve your exam performance.
3. Effectively understand, digest, and retain your LEED knowledge.
4. Understand the process of registering and certifying a building for LEED.
5. Understand the scope, main intent, core concepts and strategies, as well as identify the regulations, recognition, and incentives for each major LEED category.
6. Identify the strategies for case studies.
7. Identify the synergy in case studies.
8. Implement the most important LEED related codes and building standards.
9. Get points for categories not yet clearly defined by the USGBC.
This book fills in the blanks and demystifies LEED. It uncovers the secrets, codes, and jargon for LEED as well as the true meaning of "going green." It provides a solid foundation and fundamental framework for LEED. It covers every major aspect of LEED in plain and concise language, and introduces it to ordinary people. This guide is small and easy to carry around. You can read it whenever you have a few extra minutes. It is an indispensable book for ordinary people, developers, brokers, contractors, administrators, architects, landscape architects, civil, structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers, interns, drafters, designers and other design professionals.
What others are saying about "LEED Green Associate Exam Guide"...(Part I)
"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."

What others are saying about "LEED Green Associate Exam Guide"...(Part II)
"Complete overview for the LEED Green Associate exam
"I studied this book for about 3 days and passed the exam ... if you are truly interested in learning about the LEED system and green building design, this is a great place to start."
"Very effective study guide
"I purchased both this study guide and Mr. Chen's LEED GA Mock Exams book and found them to be excellent tools for preparing for the LEED Green Associate exam. While Mr. Chen's LEED Green Associate Exam Guide is not perfect (in that it's not the most user-friendly presentation of the material), it was very effective in at least presenting most, if not all, of the topics that the exam touched upon. While I wouldn't necessarily recommend my abbreviated strategy for preparing for the exam, the following worked for me: I read through the exam guide a couple of times (but not word for word), took the mock exam and referenced the guide for explanations for any wrong answers, did the same for the two mock exams in Mr. Chen's LEED GA Mock Exams book, flipped through the documents that Mr. Chen recommends, and took two other web-based mock exams that I purchased on eBay. Literally after ten hours of preparation time, I took the actual exam and passed with a 189, thanks in large part to Mr. Chen's books. If I decide to take one of the LEED AP exams in the future, I will definitely be picking up more of Mr. Chen's study materials."
"Only study guide needed to pass on your first try
"I don't write reviews, but I'm compelled to for this purchase. This was the only book I read and studied to prepare for the LEED Green Associate exam, and passed with ease on the first try today. I was over prepared for the exam by using this study guide, which is what I wanted on exam day. I bought the book, read it 3 times, learned a lot of good information, saved valuable time, and passed on the first try. By the way, I'm not a good test taker. I don't agree with any of the negative reviews that are posted... I'm glad I ignored those when I made the purchase and went with the majority. THIS PRODUCT DELIVERED THE RESULTS, CASE CLOSED. I'll be buying his LEED AP BD&C Exam Guide to prepare for the specialty exam. Thank you Mr. Gang Chen !!!"
"I just finished taking the LEED Green Associate exam and, thankfully, I passed it on the first try by using this book as my primary study guide...I particularly liked the way the author organized the information within it."
"Just what is needed
"I'm glad I used this book for my LEED Green Associate test, which I passed today. I tried other resources (stay away from the USGBC ones on their website!) but none were as organized as this book. When you're studying to pass the exam, you just need to know what to memorize (this would be different if you are trying to learn the concepts for work, which I think you're better off getting LEED project work experience!). Gang Chen's book gives you most of what you need to memorize in the core 120+ pages as opposed to other resources that are 250 pages full of fluff. Just remember, you only need to answer about 60% of the questions correct to pass the exam...
My tip is to get this book, read it three times (yes, three) to memorize the facts, take the mock test included to see where you need to improvement, and do a little outside research. You just need a 60% passing score..."
"Best LEED Green Associate Study Package
"This book is easy to read, and successfully gives you a much needed crash course on literally, how to study (for this exam and any other exam for that matter) and how to use the material provided most efficiently; the material in this book is able to zoom in on the most important items required to pass the exam, and deliver each item in a way which seems less technical and easier to remember (the bottom line). This book is one of a kind at the time of this review, and could be the most affordable tutor available."

"My name is Elizabeth (last name deleted to protect her privacy) and I am a junior at the University of....(college name deleted to protect her privacy). This summer I attained an internship with Kath Williams and Associates, a collaborative of creative independent contractors who come together to support innovative green projects, to learn about sustainable building. At the beginning of July I spoke with Kath about taking the LEED Green Associate Exam. After having no prior experience in sustainable architecture or LEED buildings I used both your review book and the study guides by USGBC as my study references. I wanted to e-mail to thank you for such a comprehensive review guide that was enormously helpful in passing the exam. Without your guide I don't know if I would have passed. Thank you so much."
"I'm giving this book 5 stars, as it accomplishes exactly what the author promises. Read it multiple times & memorize the key points/stats/figures, and you will be poised to pass the test."
--R. C. O'Brien
"Useful Study Guide
"The book is by far the most useful study guide I've purchased for the LEED GA exam. The other books were far too vague and did not approach the kind of pragmatic detail you'd need to pass."
"I purchased other exam preparation books for the LEED GA test and none of the others compared to this one. The layout and content of this book was much easier to use than the books from the USGBC. This book is all I needed to pass the test with its study tools like sample questions and exams. All in all a great buy!"
"This book is well organized and concise. The material is completely relevant and truly is what helped me to pass the LEED Green Associate exam! I used this book as my primary study material and found it more than sufficient. I recommend this book to anyone preparing to take the LEED GA exam!"
--Joel I. Semel
"With this book, plus the little red book, LEED Green Associate Mock Exams, (also by Gang Chen) combined with all the free PDF downloads printed from the USGBC website, I passed my LEED GA exam on the first try! Gang Chen's books provide a concise and organized framework of all the info you need...Highly recommended."
"I reviewed this book and memorized the charts and passed on the first try! This along with the Practice Exams by Gang Chen were all that I needed and included valuable tips for studying and additional (free) publications to refer to. This was an excellent purchase."
"Great Study guide. Will DEFINITELY help you pass the exam!
"I took the LEED Green Associate Exam this morning and passed with a score of 190/200. I used this book as my primary study tool. The only other thing I did was to read the Green Associates handbook and I used the LEED NC Reference Guide to check the information in the book. The book is broken down very well for studying making it much easier to memorize the data. The practice exam will prepare you well. It is much harder than the real exam. There was a lot of information in this book that showed up on the exam that I would not have known had I not read it."
