This book is for academia and not for any type of practical estimating. Heavy into the take-off and weak in pulling together an actual estimate. Problems are redudant and tedious. Very weak in Mechanical, Electrical or Plumbinng divisions
I found this book to be very good and detailed. I note with interest that most of the reviews were before the current edition in 2011. I am unsure whether this had anything to do with the negative reviews.
There were supposed to be 47 plans sheets to accompany the book and they weren't there.
The descriptions of estimating are fundamentally sound, but the way the mathematics is explained is a direct contrast to the way things are taught in most schools today. It's very "old-school", the methods are confusingly written.
THis book can be used for two classes if done at Weber State University. that makes me happy very happy
It was a good book, helped me setup a data base for site work construction, create workbooks and calculate bid prices. Can be a very effective book if you take an excel class along with it. I would recommend it for anyone looking to save time in quantity takeoff, and labor calculations. Overall good book.
This book was very helpful and I use it almost daily
