Can I use (LEED Core Concept- 2nd Edition) I've used earlier to Pass LEED GA Exam at preparing for AP Exam?
Are there any major differences between 2nd &3rd edition?

If you plan to take either the LEED for Homes or LEED-ND LEED AP with Specialty exams, we recommend staying with version 2 of the LEED Core Concepts Guide based on 2009 content because these exams have not yet been updated to version 4 content. If you plan to take any of the other LEED AP with Specialty Exams, we recommend using the third edition of the LEED Core Concepts Guide because it features updates based on LEED v4.

Does the hard copy version of LEEDS Core Concepts Guide also include access to the PDF version? Thank you in advance for your response.

LEED Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council

The Hardcopy and PDF versions are purchased separately.

I would also like to know whether LEED Core Concepts Guide is sufficient or we must get
LEED Building Design + Construction Reference Guide. v4 Edition. U.S. Green Building Council, 2013;
if I want to take LEED Green Associate examination.

You'll also want to download the free references that USGBC provides on their website here: http://www.usgbc.org/articles/prepare-your-leed-green-associate-exam

I'd like to reconfirm that is BD+C Reference Guide required for LEED Green Associate examination?

LEED Specialist, U.S. Green Building Council

The LEED AP BD+C Reference Guide may be a helpful study resource, and as been for some candidates. It is most important to focus on the publications listed in the "References" section of the LEED Green Associate Candidate Handbook (http://go.usgbc.org/green-associate.html).
