  • Illustrated throughout with clear and accurate drawings that present the state of the art in construction processes and materials
  • Updated and revised to include the latest knowledge on sustainability, incorporation of building systems, and use of new materials
  • Archetypal drawings offer clear inspiration for designers and drafters
  • Reflects the most current building codes and CSI Master Format numbering scheme

At Amazon the text was cheaper than Sait's bookstore, and it was exactly what I was required to get. The text is in typical perfect brand new condition and got to my residence within a timely manner. Exactly what you would expect from amazon.
