On LinkedIn Mr. Gang Chen advertised his book, looking for reviewers to comment on its effectiveness as a tool for studying for the LEED BD&C exam. I answered the call, and below you can find my review, as posted on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Goodreads.
This is the kind of book I wish was available when I did my original LEED AP exam. It teaches you how to study, which is so important when school is a distant memory. The bulk of the book helps you review and memorize with mnemonics the concepts for each credit that you need to know for the exam. The questions are good representations of questions on the exam. I would recommend to anyone studying for their exam, that they:
- First read the chapters in this book on how to study;
- Second read the actual LEED BD+C guide to give you the background information on the credits and gain comprehension. Underline and review as the author indicates to get the most out of your study time.
- Finally read the rest of this exam guide to help you review and memorize for the exam.
I would love to know your thoughts if any readers have read this book. Was this guide useful to you? What was your experience writing the LEED exam?
