By far the best surveying text available. It covers both basic concepts and more in-depth topics with equal clarity. This text is a must for surveying students, and practicing surveyors alike.
This book is simply excellent. It covers surveying subjects thoroughly and with great technical depth. It taught me to calculate state plane coordinate conversions by hand so that I understand what happens in a computer.This is the type of text that will elevate the PLS profession.
I purchased this book for a class while I was in college, I didn't use it very much for the class and I refused to sell it back after the class was over because I couldn't get back anywhere near what I paid for it, this turned out to be the best decision I ever made, because now that I'm working as an engineer I use this book very often as a reference when trying to decipher the surveying notes taken in the field.
Good book and reference.Lots of examples and exercises with lilustrations and up to date theory. A great buy for the surveying student.
