The GreenStep LEED v4 BD+C Study Guide with Project Experience was developed specifically for the new LEED v4 exam, which measures understanding of working on LEED projects from within the exam itself. You will learn everything you need to know about Building Design and Construction (BD+C) to pass your exam on the first try.
GreenStep LEED v4 BD+C Study Guide
The 104 page study guide includes:
- Background & Overview
- LEED for Building Design & Construction
- Managing a LEED Project
- Integrative Process (IP)
- Location & Transportation
- Water Efficiency (WE)
- Energy & Atmosphere (EA)
- Materials & Resources (MR)
- Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ)

You’ll prepare for the LEED v4 exam the best way possible, not only by focusing on the material that is covered on the new LEED v4 exam, but also by working on an actual LEED project in San Francisco, California. You’ll be able to complete two LEED credits:
- Energy Modeling
- Indoor Water Use Reduction
The GreenStep LEED AP v4 BD+C study guide with Project Experience was developed in conjunction with GreenStep’s in person and online LEED exam training workshops. The GreenStep exam preparation approach has proven to be an effective study strategy for over 10,000 GreenStep workshop participants.
This guide covers the LEED v4 Building Design and Construction (BD+C) rating system and the key areas of the LEED v4 BD+C Reference Guide. The LEED v4 BD+C Reference Guide is where 100% of the questions on the LEED AP v4 exam are found. However, because the Reference Guide is over 800 pages, we designed this guide to focus your attention on the sections of the Reference Guide where 98% of the questions will come from and samples of questions that you will see on the exam, and nothing more.
You will not only learn what the differences are between LEED 2009 and LEED v4, key exam concepts, important terms, and test taking strategies, but also you’ll gain an exceptional level of understanding of LEED certification by working on a LEED registered project.
Alex Spilger, founder of GreenStep, designed the study guide and practice questions. Alex has taken the LEED AP exam more times than any human. He has dedicated himself to helping others pass the LEED exams with confidence.
