For undergraduate and graduate level Construction Scheduling and Project Management courses.

This text is a comprehensive, stand alone reference for project scheduling. It includes complete coverage of scheduling from the basics to advanced applications along with a detailed tutorial on the four most popular software programs-Primavera Project Planner (P3), SureTrak, P3e/c, and Microsoft Project. Having scheduling information and software instructions in one book obviates the need for two texts, and the exercises and examples in the scheduling portion are tied to the same exercises in the software portions.

Review quote

"This is the most comprehensive scheduling book that I have read and would be the one I would choose as a text at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The added chapters provide the additional knowledge that is necessary but not provided by other texts. Bravo for the fire work." - Charles Glagola, University of Florida

"This is an excellent reference for college-level construction management courses and industry practitioners could also greatly benefit from owning it. It is clear the author has years of actual construction management experience. The book is well written and makes complicated material relatively easy to understand." - James Stein, Eastern Michigan University
