Many professional estimator's guides are like door stops, filled with cumbersome and dreaded "refer to page number x" and "see note y." They are not user friendly or easily referenced. With it's larger font size and larger format for easy viewing and it's comb binding, so that it will stay open and lay flat on an engineer's desktop or on the technician's sawhorse or truck hood, this manual is the optimal choise when deciding whcih reference material to use.

Included with this book is a CD, containing all of the spreadsheets and forms that estimators need on a daily basis. Just download them onto your hard drive and print them out. Use them time and again for all your electrical estimating projects.
