Overview

This CD-ROM product marks a radical departure from traditional teaching tools by allowing users to customize their learning to meet their specific needs. With a never-before-used category system, Construction Print Reading for the 21st Century provides the ability to “toggle” between construction print categories, such as architectural, structural, civil, electrical, etc., and the associated print types, including plan views, details, elevations, sections, etc. Users can then concentrate on discipline-specific information. Practical and easy-to-follow, this innovative tool presents an entirely new approach to construction print reading.
