Study Materials in preparation for LEED GA Exam. The Exam Preparation Guide by Heather McCombs is the main textbook but is supplemented with the LEED Core Conceps Guide and other readings suggested from the USGBC website, etc. Deck Title Terminology: - EPG = LEED GA Exam Preparation Guide LEED v4 Edition - LCCG = LEED Core Concepts Guide (Third Edition) *This course is currently a work in progress and to be completed before my exam by the end of 2020 DISCLAIMER: This material is by no means to substitute ANY of the study material that the USGBC claims is necessary to pass the LEED Green Associate Exam. Also, I cannot guarantee that you will pass the exam solely by using the material found here in this course. PLEASE refer to the most recent LEED Green Associate Candidate Handbook to find the most updated information that will guide you to the necessary material you will need to pass the exam. UPDATE: I took this exam in mid-January 2021 using these notecards I made and the study material recommended by the USGBC. I passed with a 197 score!! (out of 200) Below are some links to helpful resources as well: Desiger Hack's "Key Study Materials" https://designerhacks.com/aced-leed-green-associate-exam/ GBES Online Practice Exams (a must!!) https://www.gbes.com/catalog/leed/product-leed-ga-green-associate-practice-tests/ Lori Brown's Quizzes (tests you on reading material every step of the way! Quizzes were more helpful than the activities for me) https://lorisweb.com/leedga_6.html
