If you are going to be excellent at a construction trade, you have to know the rules of math. You won't find a simpler way that it is presented. This book tells what the math is, shows you how to do it, shows you how to use the calculator to do, then how to apply it to your work. It has been used in apprenticeship classes, high school classes, college courses, and by literacy classes.

This construction math book was nicely reviewed by many fine magazines such as Popular Mechanics, Fine Homebuilding, Journal of Light Construction, Mathematic Teacher, Engineering News Record, American Welding Journal, Library Journal (Starred Review), and Booklist.
