It has been written to current Australian standards. With over 700 detailed graphics to complement the easy-to-read text, the book is both highly practical and useful. There are worked examples to explain the use of tables and standards, and all trade terms are defined as they are encountered. This book is a learning resource to support the training of learners in the building industry. The development has included consultations with and inputs from industry bodies and TAFE authorities in all states and territories.

The information and diagrams in the book are an excellent resource and learning tool for people starting out in the trade giving a great foundation of terms and lingo associated with the trade. The only down side is the book itself started to fall apart and the pages in it.
