    The 6th edition of Fundamentals of Building Construction is the absolute best yet. This is a classic text for students and budding professionals, whether your specialty is interior design, construction or architecture. Though it is intended to be a classroom textbook, you can read it independently (and I recommend you do even if you don’t have to read it for school).

    The updated text includes new renderings and photographs, which is both useful and nice. It is also updated to include information about construction innovations, sustainable building, the latest building codes and technical notes. Included with each new book is the interactive resource center access code, which includes super handy resources and additional information.

    The book itself is chopped into 24 manageable chapters which begin with the foundations of building and building foundations. It then moves through wood construction, masonry, steel concrete and into roofing, glass, cladding and finishes with interiors. Every now and then the text is sprinkled with “From Concept to Reality” sections which, as the name implies, show you a real example of the technique being studied. This is super for me, because I learn better when I can fit the information I am learning into a real world example. The book also has ample illustrations, renderings and pictures to help cement the information.

    Written by experts and meticulously detailed, this is a must have in the library of any student or professional who wants a handy reference or to learn more about the world of construction.

    This is my second semester and as a prerequisite class book
    I think the Exercises in Building Construction paper back is
    splendid for additional practices exercises that train illiteracy
    and provide concepts of how to break down the Fundamentals.
    So students can clearly understand the roles of building codes,
    safety inspections, materials testing resulting in fines/ penalties,
    and methods that are used today that date back to Ancient Rome.
