Received it in a timely manner. However, you would think that this package would have came with the Addendum for the supplement to the NDS. This addendum came out in March 2013. Table 4B Reference Design Values for Visually Graded Southern Pine Dimension Lumber now has completely different values than what is in the 2012 and previous versions.

If you are designing using wood, then you have to have the 2012 NDS.

Good collection set of references to use for work and general. Would like it more with a box like it used to have them in.

Excellent publication. Useful and clear specification, commentary and references.

Yep!, Just what I ordered, just what I needed.
