NEW YORK - If you have been thinking about taking the LEED v3 Exams and have also thought about studying
for those exams, there is no better time than now to get cracking on it.  Why?  Because the current version and content that has been previously tought will be outdated starting June 15th, 2014.  This is the last date that the LEED v3 exams for Green Associate, BD+C, ID+C and O+M will be open.  After that, there will be a 15 day hiatus until June 30th, when the exams previously mentioned will feature v4 content.  You are, however, in luck if you are studying for the AP exams in Homes and Neighborhood develop, there is ti
me, keep an eye out for changes in 2015.

That being said, SKYed is no longer offering exam preparation for LEED Green Associate containing v3 information.  We will be diligently working to update our material with v4 content and will role out the new exam preparation classes at the AIANY Center for Architecture starting in late July 2014.  That way, we can make sure that as we are developing our study
material based on announced exam specifications that we get it right.  And we feel that it will only be right after actually taking a look at the real test, which again, won't be available until June 30th.  Until then, be semi wary of those offering exam prep and study guides for LEED v4 exams.  Ask yourself this before you dive into a class or new study material, "If the USGCB online store doesn't even have their LEED Green Associate Study Guide for v4 released yet, then what makes another company not even affiliated with them think that they have all the answers?"  With that in mind, to ensure that our content is accurate, efficient and will steer you down the right path, check back in with us starting in July 2014 to register for our new edition of courses.

As a side note, the USGBC does have a LEED Core Concepts Guide for v4, but this is very introductory and does not serve as an adequate study material alone.

Best of luck on your exam endeavors.
