|LEED AP BD+C V4 Exam Complete Study Guide
Lowest new price: $77.99
Lowest used price: $83.27
List price: $95.00
Author: A. Togay Koralturk
PASS THE LEED AP BD+C EXAM ON THE FIRST TRY!
The LEED AP BD+C V4 Exam Complete Study Guide helps the reader to learn, rather than just memorize the essential information for the exam; and is designed to be the only resource a candidate needs in order to successfully pass the exam on the first try.
Even though the scope of the LEED AP BD+C exam includes heavy technical terms and principles that may seem confusing at first, the book enables the reader to fully grasp the information by simply demonstrating each of them. As a result, the need for further research and struggling on same topic are avoided. This approach equips candidates to successfully pass the LEED AP BD+C exam on the first try in order to actively apply the LEED requirements into real life projects.
As LEED v4 is quite different in comparison to the former versions, the book is entirely written for LEED v4; and is not updated from a previous edition. All of the chapters contain strong guidance on the aspects that require extensive attention, while the book points out the finer details to focus on for the exam purposes. The case studies throughout the book demonstrates the real-life application of the LEED requirements, and the Key Things to Remember sections at the end of each prerequisite/credit points out the not so important looking elements, which, however can be encountered in the exam as a question. With the completion of the book, the summary sheets will reinforce knowledge and ensure a solid exam preparation. (With the digital resources, the reader will have access to sample test questions online, which will familiarize the reader with the actual exam format.) When finished reading the book, the reader will naturally feel what to expect during the test and will be able to determine his/her preparation level.
- Pass the LEED AP BD+C exam on the first try!
- Thoroughly understand and apply the LEED requirements for life, and retain all the information you have learned.
- Avoid the need of researching and struggling on the same topics.
- Know all the important things to consider during the exam beforehand.
The book is also recommended for students, professionals, and anyone who has not chosen to take the LEED AP BD+C exam, but nonetheless retains a strong interest in LEED or needs to coordinate a project towards the LEED certification.
