The seventh edition continues to build on the strong 
foundation of the previous editions. The need for 
estimators to understand the theory behind quantification
is critical and must be fully understood prior to 
performing any computerized estimating. This underlying 
premise has been one of the guiding principles that began
with Mr. Dagostino and continues with the current author.
This edition uses extensive examples and exercises to demonstrate
methodology and to the organization of the estimate.
Estimating is an art that relies heavily on the judgment of the 
person performing the takeoff. A person’s estimating skills 
can only be developed with practice; therefore, the reader is
encouraged to work the example problems and apply the 
skills taught in this book. Since the estimate is used throughout 
the project, the assumptions and methodologies assumed
must be documented and organized so that subsequent users
will have access to this knowledge.
