5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!, May 22, 2006
By 
M. McCarty (Evergreen, CO) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Construction Management JumpStart (Paperback)
This book is exactly what I have been searching for. I am a newly employed estimator/project manager and was searching for some sort of reference book to help me along. Dr. Jackson does a fabulous job of explaining things from all angles. Her book is easy to read and understand even for a novice such as myself. There are review questions at the end of each chapter as well as a list of terms to know. I find this book extremely valuable.

5.0 out of 5 stars good intro to construction, March 21, 2007
By 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Construction Management JumpStart (Paperback)
I like this book! It's a good introduction to the world of construction management. I would suggest this read for prospective students interested in a building construction, architecture, facility design, mechanical or civil engineering degree at the undergraduate or graduate degree level. A lot of the terminology in the book is what is really used in the construction industry. A scope of the industry is provided and the author covers important subjects such as estimating and scheduling - as well as project management and contract administration. She's very thorough and she doesn't pull any punches. She let's you know up front that construction management is a challenging and often difficult career to master. But the author also reminds the reader that it's a rewarding career since the buildings and stuctures created will usually be around long after people involved in it's construction live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Reference, December 19, 2006
This review is from: Construction Management JumpStart (Paperback)
This book contains useful information in an accessible, converstional tone. It is a great reference for someone just starting out in the field, or a college student who wants to know what a construction manager's job is all about. Reading this book is like spending a day on the construction site shadowing the author. It offers a good feel for the tasks and responsibilities of a CM.
