If found this text to be quite clear. The examples made sense and were provided in good quantity. The explanations were understandable and informative. The problems seemed to be good practice. I would certainly recommend this book.
This textbook is exceptional. I am new to surveying and was using another textbook in my first surveying class. That textbook was very difficult to understand and seemed to be geared toward someone who was already a civil engineer. This text however is very well written and easy to understand. It follows a logical progression through the subject matter unlike the other one that was constantly having you jump from one chapter to another. The examples and sample problems are well thought out and easy to work through. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in studying surveying. Looking forward to the new edition.
Excellent book for surveying basics but out of date because of the rapid change in modern, top of the line GPS assisted surveying equipment.
Good book but it has a lot of extraneous detail that I just don't need for my class. Could be good if your teacher was super detailed about everything though.
Awesome book, very helpful. I got an A in the surveying course!! Ha!
My copy was in really bad shape and the cover was falling off
