There are very few books written with a practical bias. Most of the books available on the subject, are written by academicians having little idea about practical difficulties. This is the only publication which gives comprehensive treatment to the subject practically as well as theoretically.
The book is a boon as it provides the reader with an overall view, which will make it possible to see different aspects of Estimating-Costing-Specification-Tendering-Construction management/structural engg. Related to estimation in their proper perspective. It does contain all the information on the various problems, dealt with. It gives clues how to understand and how to act/how to solve the particular problem.
The book will be very useful not only during studing and passing examination (Polytechnic & Degree exam.) but also is invaluable to face all difficulties in construction practices readily...-
Besides my opinion, the opinion of all our Civil Department Staff that your's is the best among all the books so far available on the subject. I recommend the book to our library and students.
