Customer Book Reviews

this book is awesome!!!!!

By

IT HAS SOOO MUCH USEFUL INFORMATION, VERY DETAILED, ANYTHING I COULD POSSIBLY WANT TO KNOW IS IN HERE FOR MATERIALS AND METHODS. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just what I ordered.

My daughter is using the book for school & saved money by getting it through Amazon. Working well for her class.

Very Comprehensive

By

I purchased it as a required text book for a Construction management class. I feel like the illustrations help make the reading come to life. I wish that there were more online training tools to help like study guides and blogs to discuss the topics. Otherwise, the book is good and I will not trade it in, I plan to use it as a resource for my future career in interior and architectural planning.

Construction Engineering

This book is great, it gives the information on common construction practices. However, the book is more focused on residential and commercial buildings, it doesn't go into detail on Civil works, such as drains, roads or tunnels. Still a fantastic read though for the basics.

construction materials, methods and techniques

I ordered this book back on January 19, 2011. It was to be delivered between Jan. 25 and Feb. 09, 2011. I sent a follow up on service because come Feb. 10, I still didn't have it. I went back and forth with Nic7889 for several days. I finally recieved the book on Feb. 17, 2011. On top of having to go back and forth with them, I was insulted as to why I expected it to be shipped out and recieved by Feb. 09. Hell, I got it almost a week late. On top of that, the book I was ordering was one that was to be in "New" condition with DVD included and I got one that was "used" with writing in it and "no" DVD. That was not what I paid for. I will think twice next simester when I need to purchase my books. I have not been a very happy camper on this deal.
