If I purchase your LEED Green Associate study guide, do I also need to buy the Core Concepts Guide from USGBC? I've been doing a lot of research and your materials seem to be very inclusive of the tools I need.

No, you do not need to purchase anything else. The Poplar study guides and exam preparation materials are designed to help you pass the exam so that you don't need anything else. 

In the development of the practice exams, LEED GA study guide, flashcards and other exam prep materials, our goal was to offer something of such incredible value that there was no need to go anywhere else. 

Also we eat our own food here. Everyone at Poplar has used the materials ourselves to pass the exams with a score of 98%. 

I personally have received calls and emails from LEED GA and AP exam takers every week for the past 5 years... I am happy when we receive feedback from our customers so that we can make our materials better and better. We post our testimonials as they come in.
