This set is supplementary to the LEED GA Exam 2009 sets I've created. Therefore, in addition to (or before) studying this flashcard set; it is recommended to study the LEED GA 2009 sets, as they are the basis for the BD+C exam. This is a study guide with a general overview of the rating system Categories and Credits - which should help solidly establish an overall understanding of the rating systems. This study guide is to be used in preparation for the LEED AP BD+C Exam 2009.
