Studio4 has released the updated LEED v4 Green Associate Study Guide Second Edition and 101 Q&A Second Edition. Studio4’s LEED v4 Green Associate study materials are used by the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC), universities, corporations, study groups, and sustainability professionals throughout the U.S. and around the world.
While there are an abundance of third-party study resources available, the author’s 40 years’ experience in the design/development/construction industry, in addition to practicing sustainable design and construction since 1983, provides a unique perspective from having sat on both sides of the table.
The 340 page LEED v4 Green Associate Study Guide Second Edition is one of the most comprehensive study guides available, as it relies on learning the “what and why”, rather than memorizing only what is needed to pass the exam. LEED exams can be stressful, even to those who are well prepared. Under stress, our memory is usually the first fatality. Chapter 13, of 15 chapters, is devoted to the Exam Overview, listing important topics on what you need to know, as well as what you should know. Also included are comprehensive lists of Codes and Definitions.
Studio4 and the CaGBC worked together for several months to ensure the v4 study materials provided the information and guidance necessary to pass the LEED v4 Green Associate Exam. The only differences between the Studio4 and CaGBC study materials are corporate logos, disclaimers, and non-LEED specific information.
Note: The Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) provides study resources to Canadians. The CaGBC has reviewed Studio4’s study materials and found them to be an excellent source of support for the LEED Green Associate exam, even helping CaGBC staff pass the exam. As a result, the CaGBC entered into an MOU with Studio4 in January 2011 that provides the Council with the exclusive opportunity to make these resources available across Canada through the CaGBC website and the CaGBC study courses.
