As an small company we find it absurd that for each person in our office to use the online reference guide we need to purchase 5 separate subscriptions unless we pay for a Platinum membership. While we appreciate the option of purchasing a hard copy that can be shared does exist - this limits our ability to ensure everyone on a team has access to updates available via the web based subscription. This is something that we feel needs to be reviewed further by the USGBC to better aid in the adoption of v4.

In LEED B+DC v4 reference guide. It seems to cover most of the knowledge domain material. Where do I go to review Task domain material?

Will the V.4 Reference Guide for Building Design & Construction prepare me for the Green Associate Exam too?

One very important question -- IS this reference guide enough to pass LEED AP BD + C exam? This is very important as if we need additional materials, then we have to search it. If this reference guide is sufficient, then we can focus completely on it.
I pass LEED Green Associate exam only last week with 96% percentage points. I am interested to take the LEED AP BD +C exam because I am fresh in my mind about green concepts.
Thank you in advance.

Can I use the same copy of the PDF on my computer and my IPAD?

Can we print the PDF copy and can it be shared by multiple users. We need a response!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can a PDF copy be used by different people or is it restricted for a single user?
