I am taking the Green Associate Exam this month. So far, I have purchased the v4 Exam Prep Guide and have access to 6 of the 7 references listed in the Handbook. Do I need to purchase this Core Concepts guide or is the info the Exam Prep Guide sufficient to prepare for the GA exam? Do I need to read all 6 of the references in the Handbook or are those many for the AP exam?

Is pdf version printable?

Unfortunately I have been studying the Second Edition and was not aware it was not relevant for the new test. I wish someone would explain the difference in material but I imagine that will hurt the selling power of this book...

I studied the 2nd edition Core Concept quite thoroughly. Has the content changed significantly or just a chapter in the 3rd edition?
Is there a supplemental resource containing the changes from the 2nd to 3rd edition?

All-Inclusive LEED v4 Green Associate Exam Prep I sign up for this one - but I cannot find the LEED Core Concept Guide. Do I have to buy it separately?

Is it better to purchase this book or LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation Guide, LEED v4 Edition ? I also wanted to know that how long does it to receive the book in CANDA? nothing was mentioned about the shipping.

Thank you

Is it better to purchase this book as a reference for the LEED GA or LEED Green Associate Exam Preparation Guide, LEED v4 Edition ? And could you please tell me how long does it take to receive it in CANDA?
Thank you

Is this the booklet to download to study for the Green Associate's? I'm just getting started and having a hard time finding out exactly how to get started! Thanks.
