Had I known that most of the information in this book can be easily found online for free, then I would not have purchased it. Most notably, the "reformatted" credit information simply repackages the credit information available directly from the USGBC as a free pdf. The bulk of this book consists of this reformatted credit information and yet contains no new or insightful information. The charts and advice available from websites such as [...] and "Learning to LEED" are much more helpful. The author of the intheleed website also offers the information available on his website in a well organized e-book for HALF THE PRICE of this book.
Real preparation requires complete study of the reference guide, which is pricey if you don't have one available to you. Save your money for that. Also consider spending money on the mock exams from [...] They provide exam relevant questions with answers AND analysis, all of which is sorely missing from this book.
I was able to pass the exam handily without recourse to this publication, I would recommend focusing one's attention and resources elsewhere.
Because it is so short on detail and is just lists of bullet points and words to memorize, you really can't use this as a reference book later.
My hang ups were these:
They often used vague explanations and filler material in the beginning literature section. While it was good to read the material in a more discussion style--rather than just a bunch of tables--they were sometimes nondescript and used sentences that had no meaning. Also, the outlines for the credits took up too much space (nearly 2/3 of book). I think they should have provided some practice questions.
I have not taken the exam yet so I can't say whether this was a sufficient prep guide. I feel like I'm learning, but we'll see.
