Including complete theory and practice material, the book is useful for all civil engineering students who are pursuing degree, diploma, certificate and draftsman courses. Based on departmental practice and I.S.I. specifications, the book features various conversion tables, technical data and other information that can be quite helpful while performing practical tests.
Specification and valuations are also mentioned in the book for providing detailed insight into practical aspects of different topics. For better understanding, the book even includes drawing and designing formats used in civil engineering. Published by UBSPHD, a reputed publication house, the book is quite good for clearing basic to advanced topics from the subject.
