DeWalt Construction Estimating Professional Reference (Dewalt Trade Reference) by Adam Ding
DeWalt Construction Estimating Professional Reference (Dewalt Trade Reference)

Best Book, November 7, 2006

This is the best estimating book I ever read. A very practical guide in a pocket size. Forget about those lectures from university professors, follow this guy. He is the pro who has "actually been there and back" :--).

Estimating tables, forms, checklists, pre-bid, bidday, post-bid checklists, procedures, quantity take-offs, quote evaluations, software...... You name it, it's all in there! Why spend $100 or more on big books while getting nothing? This one is priceless but affordable. If I was the professor, I could let my students save some money and get the real thing that works.(Sigh......)
