Construction Estimating Using Excel

Construction Estimating with Excel, Second Edition, introduces readers to the fundamental principles of estimating. Using drawing sets, real-world exercises, and examples, the text offers students critical estimating experience. The book moves step-by-step through the estimating process, discussing the art of estimating, the quantity takeoff, how to put costs to the estimate, and how to finalize the bid. As students progress through the text they are shown how Microsoft Excel can be used to improve the estimating process. Because it introduces spreadsheets as a way of increasing estimating productivity and accuracy, the book can help both beginning and experienced estimators improve their skills.

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
