As part of our comprehensive LEED Exam Prep Courses, we are always asked where can one buy a used LEED reference guide. The interesting part about LEED reference guides is that the number of LEED AP candidates has been steadily growing as the LEED standard has become increasingly popular. This growth means that used reference guides move pretty quickly, so they don’t stay for sale for very long. So if you have the chance to get one, don’t wait, grab that used LEED reference guide while you can.

If you’re just starting to think about getting LEED Certified (i.e., becoming a LEED AP), then I’d recommend that you start studying and take the LEED AP Exam before March 31st, 2009.

March 31st, 2009 is the official last day to register for the current LEED NC 2.2 Version 3 Exam, which is 2 hours and 80 questions. Even though you may take the LEED NC 2.2 exam until July 1st or so, if you fail, you will then have to wait for the new exam to come out.
