Author name:  Paula Melton Blog Category:  BuildingGreen Talks LEED Despite waiting till the last minute to study, I got a really good score and became a LEED Green Associate. Here’s where I spill all my secrets! Let’s get one thing straight: I don’t usually procrastinate. But when I read that being a LEED Green Associate (or, if you must, LEED Green Assoc.—but never LEED GA !) involved “basic” green building knowledge, I figured I had things pretty well under control. I started studying six days before the test. Oops There’s a second thing that everyone should get straight on: the exam goes far beyond the basics. It assumes extensive knowledge of the LEED building design and construction (BD+C) rating systems, and the only way to pass the test is to read, master, and in some cases memorize key parts of the LEED 2009 BD+C Reference Guide. Owning the BD+C Reference Guide is not optional. Yes, it’s expensive, but it’s cheaper than re-taking the test, and you’ll need it later when you start working on projects anyway. read more
