Standard Practice for Bracing Masonry Walls: Developed by the Council of Masonry Wall Bracing and recognized by OSHA as an acceptable method of bracing masonry walls, this manual provides for evacuation of the restricted zone at various wind levels and bracing heights. This standard is intended to improve safety on the job site by providing design criteria for masonry and bracing systems used on free-standing masonry walls to resist specified wind loads during construction. The Appendix shows sample solutions to a number of design conditions and assists in making decisions of how and when to brace.
Construction Safety and Health: This book offers an up-to-date, practical resource that focuses specifically on the needs of modern construction professionals and on the requirements set forth by OSHA and other regulatory agencies relating specifically to construction. Extensive coverage of construction safety and health with topics including: job safety and hazard analysis, emergency response plan, and preventing violence in the workplace. Includes comprehensive and current coverage of all sections of 29 CFR 1926 of OSHA's Construction Standard. For construction professionals.
Each chapter focuses on one key area of concern, and chapters are sequenced to reflect the typical organization of college-level construction safety and health courses. Extensive updates include: LEED accreditation; effects of design on construction safety; new material on ergonomics, human factors, and behavior-based safety; and much more.
Construction Planning, Equipment, and Methods (Mcgraw-Hill Series in Civil Engineering): The Seventh Edition of Construction Planning, Equipment, and Methods, follows in the footsteps of the previous editions by providing the reader with the fundamentals of machine utilization and production estimating in a logical, simple, and concise format. Our text features expanded coverage of building in today's global environment. Hundreds of photos and illustrations have been added to the seventh edition to make this dynamic text even more accessible to both students and professionals. In addition, since technology is constantly evolving, this text provides an understanding of machine capabilities and how to properly apply those capabilities to construction challenges. Web-based exercises have been added to many chapters to draw attention to the expanding volume of information available over the Internet.
Project Management for Engineering and Construction: The purpose of this book is to present the principles and techniques of project management, beginning with the conceptual phase by the owner, through coordination of design and construction, to project completion. Throughout this book, the importance of management skills is emphasized to enable the user to develop his or her own style of project management. The focus is to apply project management at the beginning of a project, when it is first approved. Too often the formal organization to manage a project is not developed until the beginning of the construction phase. This book presents the information that must be assembled and managed during the development and engineering design phase to bring a project to successful completion by the owner.
Fully revised throughout, this up-to-date guide presents the principles and techniques of managing engineering and construction projects from the initial conceptual phase, through design and construction, to completion. The book emphasizes project management duringthe beginning stages of project development to influence the quality, cost, and schedule of a project as early in the process as possible. Featuring an all-new chapter on risk management, the third edition also includes new sections on:
- Ensuring project quality
- The owner's team
- Parametric estimating
- Importance of the estimator
- Formats for work breakdown structures
- Design work packages
- Benefits of planning
- Calculations to verify schedules and cost distributions
- Common problems in managing design
- Build-operate-transfer delivery methods
Based on the author's decades of experience in working with hundreds of project managers, this essential resource includes many new real-world examples and updated sample problems.
Project Management for Engineering and Construction, Third Edition, covers:
- Working with project teams
- Project initiation
- Early estimates
- Project budgeting
- Development of work plan
- Design proposals
- Project scheduling
- Tracking work

Mark DeSantis runs www.learncivilengineering.com and has published a great manual for the construction depth exam, the Construction Depth Practice Exam and Assessment Guide.
This book covers your depth section as well as giving you an assessment of where you are with your studying. You'll get the top 40 questions asked on the construction exam.
People have found this exam to be one of the most realistic exams for the construction depth exam and I think it is worth your purchase if you are taking that depth section.
Dr. Goswami is at it again. He's made some good breadth practice exams and now has branched off to make them for each individual depth section.
This is the second printing of this book and now includes updates to meet the new specification from the NCEES organization.
You'll get 40 breadth and 40 depth questions with this book. This book is brand new so the general opinion on the book hasn't really surfaced, but based on his previous books I'm sure this can only help. If I were taking the depth section in construction I would give this a go. For the price it is a steel.
