Throughout the text the authors stress the real world function of the topics and subjects by providing methods and application suggestions instead of just providing text with theory.  It also contains examples of the documents and papers that are commonly used on the construction site to keep you familiar with why they are needed and their use on the jobsite.  Included at the end of each chapter are review questions to help enhance your understanding of the topics.  The questions even come with the answers.  The authors have had decades of hands-on experience on the management sites so this must-have manual is the only one you will need for jobsite experience.
