Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This first edition of Construction Management Fundamentals is general in terms of individual construction process activities and comprehensive in terms of construction fundamentals (get work, do work, keep score). This is a comprehensive new text for the emerging Construction Fundamentals course taught to non-construction engineering and architecture majors taking only one or two construction courses. These students are not majoring in construction and have very little knowledge of the construction industry, construction processes, or how projects are executed.

About the Author

Cliff Schexnayder (Tempe, AZ) Eminent Scholar Emeritus at Del Webb School of Construction, Arizona State University.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent source reference, May 27, 2008
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is an excellent text for teaching construction management fundamentals. I have used it in both undergraduate and graduate courses and my students have valued its purchase (if not the price of the purchase).

It is a good overview publication, reasonably easy to read with a balance between technical and explanatory discussions. The book presents the material logically and the information flows well from one topic to the next.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Item, September 14, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I paid for overnight shipping on this item as I needed it immediately and they sent me a different textbook with the same title (different ISBN). Because of this, I had to purchase another one of these and once again pay for overnight shipping. I am extremely upset with the carelessness of this seller in shipping the wrong book. I will not be ordering from this company again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for my class, April 12, 2010
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I didn't realize I had not left a review for this product. It was a very useful tool when I took my class 5 years ago. Great details and it was altogether a great class and book.
