The text presents an estimating procedure using production rates. While this is good background to have and is an acceptable methodology, make sure that your instructor also shows you how to use Means. The text does contain numerous errors, so make sure to get the errata sheets from the author. When we asked the author why the corrections have not been updated in the text, the author replied that the publisher said it would cost too much. Somebody needs to tell the publisher to quit selling the book until they fix it!

The original author of this book has been deceased for several revisions. The revisions were not well done and the book is outdated in many areas. Lots of photos which are not worth the space they take up and should be removed. I believe this book survives in tech schools because it has nuggets of well written and well thought out analysis of the estimating process. Without much explanation as to why, the author leans heavily toward the Heavy Civil sector of construction i.e. highways, airports, etc. The software included is also designed for heavy civil. All said, no other author on construction estimating seems to have the grasp of the foundations of estimating as this author. For me, it makes a nice supplemental reference book but I would never adopt it as a textbook.

The book was part of my graduate school program, the problem and examples are very good and contain a lot of details, to make one think.
