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.

“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.”

“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 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.”

“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.”

“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.”

What others are saying about ARE Mock Exam series

 

“Great study guide…”

“This was a great resource supplement to my other study resources. I appreciated the mock exam questions the most, and the solutions offer an explanation as to why the answer is correct. I will definitely check out his other ARE exam resources!

 

UPDATE: Got my PASS Letter!”

Sean Primeaux

 

“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…”

“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.”

“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!”
