I passed the LEED Exam on the Mock Exam and LEED v4 BD&C by Gang Chen books alone. I just had these two books, and printed out the USGBC/ GBCI PDF's he recommends. I passed both the Green Associate and BD&C portions. All I did was spend a month on the GA portion, then the 2nd month on the BD&C portion using the above-mentioned materials and that's it. I do have experience as a Mechanical Engineer with LEED projects in the past (HVAC and Building Envelope Energy Calculations/ Modeling) which helped on the procedural stuff, but Gang Chen's books cover this also. Get a highlighter so you're more engaged with what you're reading (slowly) and you'll be fine.Review your highlights a week-and-a-half prior to the exam and follow the author's advice on test prep. The Mock Exam book gives you an excellent "feel" for the test questions (which felt familiar in style on the actual exam), and the questions themselves had info in them that came in handy on the actual test.
I don't know how this book is getting such great reviews. The questions really didn't help me with the actual exam (which I passed the first time). The first part of the exam, which we all know is the LEED Green Associate exam. The questions in the first part of the book are exactly alike from his other book "LEED GA Mock Exams (V4)". So, I basically bought the half of the same book I've already had. The BD+C questions are okay but the answers sometimes don't make sense. The book also contains a lot of errors towards the end. It's like they just gave up proofreading everything and sent it out.You should probably spend the extra $30.00 and buy a review question package online. Usually they have a lot more questions (around 500) and with clear and concise answers. This book just seems poorly written and not worth the money.
I have just passed LEED BD+C V4 exam. Thanks to BD+C Mock Exam.It gives a good overview and strategies to take the exam.Exam questions included in book gives a comprehensive overview and helps prepare what to expect in exam.I would recommend this book to pass the exam. Good luck
This is a solid practice test for the LEED AP BD&C exam. There are two tests in the book...the first test is the same GA mock exam as the one in the GA Mock Exam book(so definitely no need to buy BOTH mock exam books, just the BD&C). The second test in the book is the BD&C one. It is somewhat harder than the actual exam (which I passed). The answer explanations in the back are well explained!! It does ask a significant amount of refrigerant questions though...which there might have been two on the actual exam (but the heads up the book provided was appreciated).This book asks questions like:(Choose 3):A. Answer 1B. Answer 2C. Answer 3D. Answer 4E. Answer 5While the exam asks questions like:(Choose 1):A. Answer 1, Answer 2, Answer 3B. Answer 2, Answer 3, Answer 4C. Answer 5, Answer 1, Answer 3D. Answer 1, Answer 2, Answer 5
