Show synopsis Understanding Construction Drawings, 3E is a comprehensive textbook on print reading for all members of the construction industry. The content is organized into 4 sections, with each section referencing a set of drawings (blueprints) for a different building. Beginning with a simple residential building, the buildings become more complex as the student progresses through the book, with the last building being an addition to a high school. Realism and replication of conditions the student will find on the job is an important theme in this book. The drawings packaged with the book are real prints from real projects printed the same size as real world drawings. Unlike other print reading textbooks, Understanding Construction Drawings requires the student to cross reference information between drawings. After completing this textbook a student will be comfortable with finding information in different parts of a drawing set and using those pieces to understand the whole. Each unit ends with Review Questions that require the student to apply the knowledge they gained through study and apply it to the prints in the drawing package. A separate Instructor's Guide contains the answers to all of the review questions and section tests in the textbook and an additional test for each section.
