“Tried everything 4 times before reading this book and PASSED!”

“I had failed this exam 4 times prior to getting this book…I had zero clue as to what I was doing wrong. I read Ballast, Kaplan and random things on the forum but for the life of me couldn’t pin point where I was missing it until I read THIS BOOK! Gang did an excellent job…I remember going through the ramp and reading Gang’s book and saying Ohhhh like 4 or 5 times. I read his book several times until I became comfortable with the information. I went in on test day and it was a breeze. I remember walking out of there thinking I couldn’t believe I struggled so much before. The tips in here are priceless! I strongly recommend this book…”
—hendea1

 

“Add this to your ARE study”

“This was a very helpful practice exam and discussion. I really appreciated the step-by-step review of the author’s approach… As I studied it last before taking the test, Gang Chen’s book probably made the difference for me.”

Dan Clowes (“XLine”)

 

“Good supplemental mock exam”

“I found the mock exam to be very helpful, all of the answers are explained thoroughly and really help you understand why it is correct…Also the introduction and test taking tips are very helpful for new candidates just starting the ARE process.”

Bgrueb01

 

“Essential Study Tool”

“I have read the book and found it to be a great study guide for myself. Mr. Gang Chen does such a great job of helping you get into the right frame of mind for the content of the exam. Mr. Chen breaks down the points on what should be studied and how to improve your chances of a pass with his knowledge and tips for the exam and practice vignettes.

 

I highly recommend this book to anyone…it is an invaluable tool in the preparation for the exam as Mr. Chen provides a vast amount of knowledge in a very clear, concise, and logical matter.”

Luke Giaccio

 

“Wish I had this book earlier”
“…The questions are written like the NCARB questions, with various types…check all that apply, fill in the blank, best answer, etc. The answer key helpfully describes why the correct answer is correct, and why the incorrect answers are not. Take it from my experience, at half the cost of other mock exams, this is a must buy if you want to pass…”
—Domiane Forte (“Vitruvian Duck”)

 

“This book did exactly like the others said.”

“This book did exactly like the others said. It is immensely helpful with the explanation… There are so many codes to incorporate, but Chen simplifies it into a methodical process. Bought it and just found out I passed. I would recommend.”

Dustin

 

“It was the reason I passed.”

“This book was a huge help. I passed the AREs recently and I felt this book gave me really good explanations for each answer. It was the reason I passed.”

—Amazon Customer

 

“Great Practice Exam”
“… For me, it was difficult to not be overwhelmed by the amount of content covered by the Exam. This Mock Exam is the perfect tool to keep you focused on the content that matters and to evaluate what you know and what you need to study. It definitely helped me pass the exam!!”
—Michael Harvey (“Harv”)

 

“One of the best practice exams”

“Excellent study guide with study tips, general test info, and recommended study resources. Hands down one of the best practice exams that I have come across for this exam. Most importantly, the practice exam includes in depth explanations of answers. Definitely recommended.”
—Taylor Cupp

 

“Great Supplement!!”

“This publication was very helpful in my preparation for my BS exam. It contained a mock exam, followed by the answers and brief explanations to the answers. I would recommend this as an additional study material for this exam.”

—Cynthia Zorrilla-Canteros (“czcante”)

 

“Fantastic! ”
“When I first began to prepare for this exam; the number of content areas seemed overwhelming and daunting at best. However, this guide clearly dissected each content area into small management components. Of all the study guides currently available for this test – this exam not only included numerous resources (web links, you tube clips, etc..), but also the sample test was extremely helpful. The sample test incorporated a nice balance of diagrams, calculations and general concepts – this book allowed me to highlight any “weak” content areas I had prior to the real exam. In short – this is an awesome book!”

What others are saying about LEED AP O+M Mock Exam …

 

“These are TOUGH sample tests. You need this book.!

“I used this book as a review in the day or two before my exam. The questions in this book could very well be found on the exam, but most actual exam questions will not be as complex as they are made here. Most of these questions on these mock exams have a twist or trick and many can only be answered if you know the materials backwards and forward. This makes for GREAT exam preparation because it makes you acutely aware of the types of tricks and the level of detail you MIGHT see on the exam…”

G. Patton

 

“I highly recommend this book!

“The book was extremely helpful for me passing the exam. The questions really challenged me to dig deeper into the details of each category. I felt this was one of several tools to help me be prepared for the exam. I highly recommend this book.”

Edwin F Sierra

 

“Such a great tool!

“I passed the exam at the first attempt. These mock exams helped me to learn how to tackle the problems and which areas I should focus on! I worked with another book of the author also. It took 2-3 weeks for my preparation.”

“Great resource!

“I would certainly recommend this book to everyone who is preparing to take this exam. It is very helpful, easy to read, and understand. The FAQ section alone provides invaluable information. Since I personally find it really helpful to take a Mock exam in preparation for an actual exam, the Mock practice exam in this book is very beneficial and is similar to the type of questions that you would encounter in the real exam.”

“Add this to your ARE study”

“This was a very helpful practice exam and discussion. I really appreciated the step-by-step review of the author’s approach… As I studied it last before taking the test, Gang Chen’s book probably made the difference for me.”

Dan Clowes (“XLine”)

 

“Good supplemental mock exam”

“I found the mock exam to be very helpful, all of the answers are explained thoroughly and really help you understand why it is correct…Also the introduction and test taking tips are very helpful for new candidates just starting the ARE process.”

Bgrueb01

 

“Essential Study Tool”

“I have read the book and found it to be a great study guide for myself. Mr. Gang Chen does such a great job of helping you get into the right frame of mind for the content of the exam. Mr. Chen breaks down the points on what should be studied and how to improve your chances of a pass with his knowledge and tips for the exam and practice vignettes.

 

I highly recommend this book to anyone…it is an invaluable tool in the preparation for the exam as Mr. Chen provides a vast amount of knowledge in a very clear, concise, and logical matter.”

Luke Giaccio

 

“Wish I had this book earlier”
“…The questions are written like the NCARB questions, with various types…check all that apply, fill in the blank, best answer, etc. The answer key helpfully describes why the correct answer is correct, and why the incorrect answers are not. Take it from my experience, at half the cost of other mock exams, this is a must buy if you want to pass…”
—Domiane Forte (“Vitruvian Duck”)

 

“This book did exactly like the others said.”

“This book did exactly like the others said. It is immensely helpful with the explanation… There are so many codes to incorporate, but Chen simplifies it into a methodical process. Bought it and just found out I passed. I would recommend.”

Dustin

 

“It was the reason I passed.”

“This book was a huge help. I passed the AREs recently and I felt this book gave me really good explanations for each answer. It was the reason I passed.”

—Amazon Customer

 

“Great Practice Exam”
“… For me, it was difficult to not be overwhelmed by the amount of content covered by the Exam. This Mock Exam is the perfect tool to keep you focused on the content that matters and to evaluate what you know and what you need to study. It definitely helped me pass the exam!!”
—Michael Harvey (“Harv”)

 

“One of the best practice exams”

“Excellent study guide with study tips, general test info, and recommended study resources. Hands down one of the best practice exams that I have come across for this exam. Most importantly, the practice exam includes in depth explanations of answers. Definitely recommended.”
—Taylor Cupp

 

“Great Supplement!!”

“This publication was very helpful in my preparation for my BS exam. It contained a mock exam, followed by the answers and brief explanations to the answers. I would recommend this as an additional study material for this exam.”

—Cynthia Zorrilla-Canteros (“czcante”)

 

“Fantastic! ”
“When I first began to prepare for this exam; the number of content areas seemed overwhelming and daunting at best. However, this guide clearly dissected each content area into small management components. Of all the study guides currently available for this test – this exam not only included numerous resources (web links, you tube clips, etc..), but also the sample test was extremely helpful. The sample test incorporated a nice balance of diagrams, calculations and general concepts – this book allowed me to highlight any “weak” content areas I had prior to the real exam. In short – this is an awesome book!”

I read Ballast, Kaplan and random things on the forum but for the life of me couldn’t pin point where I was missing it until I read THIS BOOK! Gang did an excellent job…I remember going through the ramp and reading Gang’s book and saying Ohhhh like 4 or 5 times. I read his book several times until I became comfortable with the information.

Here is the detailed info:

LEED v4 BD&C EXAM GUIDE: A Must-Have for the LEED AP BD+C Exam: Study Materials, Sample Questions, Green Building Design and Construction, LEED Certification, and Sustainability

ISBN: 9781612650173

It is available at:

Synopsis

 

Pass the LEED AP BD&C Exam, Get Your Building LEED Certified, Fight Global Warming and Save Money!

 

The USGBC released LEED v4 in GreenBuild International Conference and Expo in November, 2013. The GBCI started to include the new LEED v4 content for all LEED exams in late Spring 2014. We have incorporated the new LEED v4 content in this book.

 

Starting on December 1, 2011, GBCI began to draw LEED AP BD+C Exam questions from Green Building and LEED Core Concepts Guide. We have also incorporated the latest information from this book.

LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is one of the most important trends in 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 AP BD+C Exam.
2. Register and achieve LEED certification for a building.
3. Understand the intent of each LEED prerequisite and credit.
4. Calculate points for LEED credits.
5. Indentify the credit path, submittal requirements, synergies, possible strategies and technologies, project phase, LEED submittal phase, and responsible party for each prerequisite and credit.
6. Earn extra credit (exemplary performance) for LEED.
7. Implement the related codes and standards.
8. Obtain points for categories not yet clearly defined by the USGBC.

Most of the existing books on LEED and the LEED exams are too expensive and complicated to be practical or helpful. This guide 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 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, engineers, interns, drafters, designers, and other design professionals.

What others are saying about LEED BD&C Exam Guide
 
“Passed on first try, only used this guide
“This is the best study guide HANDS DOWN. If you’re serious about passing the LEED AP BD&C exam on your first try, this is the one you’ve been looking for! I bought Mr. Chen’s LEED Green Associate Exam Guide2 months ago and passed it on the first try as well. I purchased the USGBC reference guide and Mr. Chen’s LEED BD&C Exam Guide. I never opened the USGBC reference guide, only studied from Mr. Chen’s study guide. I followed Mr. Chen’s instructions and studied the guide for 2 weeks (yes, I have a full-time job). I did ignore the mnemonics, not my learning style (makes it more confusing to me). The exam was not easy, but I prepared and stuck to this material. I am not a good test taker by no means. I reviewed the technical data of the guide about 6 times and ignored everything else I had read or heard about the exam. Here’s a piece of advice that I picked up from this book, spend less time on practice tests and more time studying! I have a subscription to a web exam simulator (rated the best) and only did about 100 questions, until I realized that I was wasting my valuable time. Find a good book and stick to it. This is also a great reference guide to use on everyday projects. Review the material, try to understand it, then try to memorize it through repetition. I would like to shake your hand and say THANKS AGAIN MR. GANG CHEN !!! ”
LOBO
 
“Excellent Guide and Good Manual
“I passed the LEED AP BD+C and the LEED AP ID+C exams this year and Gang Chen’s books were my primary study material! The books are easy to read and use. Gang Chen provides study hints and guidance as well as an outline format that makes it easy for the reader to grasp key points. He also provides an excellent review of the entire accreditation process which can save people time in personal research. The books are more than study guides; they are helpful as reference manuals because of the easy to follow format. Definitely a keeper in my bookshelf for future project reference.”
Karen M. Scott     
 
“Great resource for studying for the LEED Exam!
“I have taken and passed the LEED AP BD+C exam and know what it takes. As this author says, it’s not an easy exam and he is right. What is critical to passing is having great teaching tools and this book is one of them. He touches on every aspect of how to memorize data, how questions are formed, what to expect on tricky questions, the content the test writers are looking for and every little detail you need to know when preparing for this exam. I highly recommend this author’s books if you are serious about passing any of the LEED exams, hopefully on the first try!”
S. Jennifer Sakiewicz
 
“LEED BD & C Exam Study Guide
“Gang Chan’s study guide is an excellent resource in preparing to take the LEED AP BD+C exam particularly if one follows the study recommendation made in the guide. It does not replace the LEED Reference manual as the definitive source for technical information but more importantly provides a structure for the study of the information that is easily understood and when followed should provide good assurance of success in passing the exam the 1st time. This is a ‘keeper’!”
Spock
 
“Good summary of information to memorize for the test
“Chen’s exam guide is a good summary of the test relevant information in the LEED reference guide. He underlines specific information that is important to commit to memory for the test. It is a good way to understand which information needs to be strictly memorized if you are preparing for the test in a short amount of time and have a good understanding of the LEED process through your professional experience. I passed the test with a very high score on my first try, and I did use this guide, one other, the LEED reference manual, online sources, a class, and many years of personally working on and completing online LEED submittals through my work. The week before taking the test I used it to commit point values and those kind of details to memory… ”
Denver
 
“Not a bulky ref guide
LEED BD&C Exam Guide does a great job in highlighting and summarizing the key points and concepts in USGBC ref guide. If you only have limited amount of time for LEED AP BD+C exam preparation, definitely go for this book.”
Metcalf
“Very valuable guide!
“I am a lighting designer and am preparing to take the LEED BD+C exam…I got LEED BD&C Exam Guide to prepare for the LEED AP BD+C Exam and it was fairly well organized to help me refresh my memory on the background LEED knowledge I had. All the specifics that one needs to know about each credit such as the Purpose of the credit, Credit path, Submittals, Strategies and technologies etc, are clearly organized for every credit. In addition the author also employs the smart technique of Mnemonics which helps in memorizing the vast amount of information in a simplified manner.”
Visswapriya Prabakar
“Immensely valuable and utterly to the point, a true must have!
“This is an excellent publication by Gang Chen that outlines precisely all the key points one need for success. I personally appreciate the easy to adopt memorization technique offered by the author. Practice exams are very comprehensive yet summarized and not to mention highly effective learning tool as it is designed in this book. It is a very delightful experience for me to have this outstanding publication. In a word, this definitely worth the money and for me it turns out extraordinarily helpful.”
Shanaz, who passed LEED AP BD+C Exam on the first try
“Very Helpful!
“I found LEED BD&C Exam Guide to be very detailed and very helpful. I plan to take the exam soon, and I feel fully prepared for it.”
Yousuf Asadzoi
“Good book!
“I had appeared for GA and passed. I loved the content and the underlined highlights. I read your book; it gave me insight and knowledge on how credits are applied. Some questions in your book helped me answer ones on the test. Good book, I’ll go through it once again when I appear for AP.”
Haresh Vibhakar, AIIA (India), AIA, LEED Green Associate, Architect
“A good outline
“The book is an excellent outline to learn the necessary items required to study for the exam. It is not a comprehensive study guide in and of itself. Practice exam is good indicator of test preparation.”
Paul Levine
“Solid LEED Study Guide
“This is the kind of book I wish was available when I did my original LEED AP exam. It teaches you how to study, which is so important when school is a distant memory. The bulk of the book helps you review and memorize with mnemonics the concepts for each credit that you need to know for the exam. The questions are good representations of questions on the exam. I would recommend to anyone studying for their exam, that they:
– First read the chapters in this book on how to study;
– Second read the actual LEED BD+C guide to give you the background information on the credits and gain comprehension. Underline and review as the author indicates to get the most out of your study time.
– Finally read the rest of this exam guide to help you review and memorize for the exam.”
missfitz “missfitz”
“Very Helpful Guide
“Gang Chen’s LEED BD&C Exam Guides very helpful in consolidating information from USGBC and GBCI sources as well as providing the information that is necessary for the exam without excess irrelevant information. I highly recommend this book for preparation for the LEED BD+C exams.”
