I started working on the Air section from Linderburg and thought if this section is worth reading from there? Should I focus on the other books like Cooper & Alley or other books? Please share your experiences.

Some of the tougher things, in my opinion, were all of the conversions for stack sampling. You know, converting for temperatures, percent O2, that kind of thing. Also, combustion stoichiometry - this was covered pretty well by Lindeberg, but I appreciated the additional reading in both Cooper & Alley, and also LaGrega's Hazardous Waste Management. That was primarily based on incinerator stuff, which is good to read up on. In fact, looking at my books, I have LaGrega tabbed up with a number of air-related subjects, including combustion (some good tables in this book), O2 corrections, and incinerators.
But yeah, back to your question, go ahead and read through the Lindeberg Air chapters, do the example questions, and the practice problems, and you will be in decent shape. Follow up with additional study in the other books you have available. Get good at using and manipulating the ideal gas law - it comes up a lot, even in the health and safety subjects.

For the treatment design stuff, it was most plug and chug using the equations in the the ENVRM, and the Handbook of Air Pollution Control Engineering and Technology by Mycock (yeah, that's really his name) et al.
And what DLeg said, manipulating the Ideal Gas Law is key. I am not all that good at that. But I guarantee you'll see a question or two going from ppmv to mg/m3.
