I want to give LEED AP ND version 4 ( 2014) exam.

Could you please guide me regarding the handbook and reference guides as I am confused between version 2009 and version 2014.

Hi Mary - Looks like Shara's response didn't sync up perfectly with your question. She responded: "The checklist is located under the actual rating system section. Please go to the following link for the checklist: https://new.usgbc.org/resources/existing-buildings-v2009-checklist-xls"
