Some buildings that are in progress of LEED project certification - the building staff are not informed.
This can be a great loss to the owner. The building staff work in the buildings daily. If they keep a log and are
Alert to certain issues that would be a great for recertification and improved ROI. Collaboration Please.

It appears that most people are purchasing this guide to study for exams - is that its purpose?
I need a decent guide, including examples and case studies, to help me achieve the necessary credits to LEED certify a project - the LEED Online dashboard is too vague to be useful, the telephone customer service is useless and the email contacts don't bother to respond!

Can we print the PDF ?

The PDF reference guides can be printed but they are intended for personal use only and should not be stored on any shared network. Please find more information about PDF reference guides here: http://www.usgbc.org/help/what-difference-between-pdf-access-e-book-and-hard-copy-reference-guide-purchases.

Merci beaucoup ! Thanks,

Is this book needed for the LEED Green Associate Exam? Or is it ONLY needed for the LEED AP BD+C Exam?
thanks

This link outlines what we recommend studying for the LEED GA test. http://www.usgbc.org/articles/prepare-your-leed-green-associate-exam. The only section that typically needs to be reviewed from the LEED Reference Guide for Building Design and Construction is the Introductory and Overview Sections. These sections are available to download separately from purchasing the full reference guide. This particular reference guide is best suited for those looking to take the LEED AP BD + C exam.
