    I would recommend these two chapters:

    MODULE 5 : CONSTRUCTION DOCS, reading all pre construction activities, bonding, insurance and surety, methods of specifying.

    MODULE 7: Preconstruction, submittals, modifications, payment and project closeout.

    How helpful did you find this resource. Trying to decide if I need to buy it or not.

    It is a good read, but you can find similar information in the AHPP.

    Thanks for getting back to me! I already have AHPP, and don’t want to unnecessarily spend an extra $100.

    The book explains the Masterformat. That in my opinion is one of the few things that no other book can describe with enough precision.

    CSI Manual of Practice

    Since this book appears to have been published in 1967, is there a free .PDF format out there that someone might be willing to share?

     

    If so, it will not go unnoticed, and I am sure we trade something of ARCH value?

    Paul,

    Did anyone ever respond to your request?  The edition NCARB references is the 5th edition published in 2004 or 2005.  My office does not even have a copy of this edition only the newer version.  NCARB should update to the newer version or not use something that is 15 years old and no one can easily find for under $100.00.

    For CSI, the main idea is you need to know what materials go to which specification section, such as grab bars in toilet, or storefront, etc. 

    For example, one of the NCARB sample questions asks which specification section is missing based on the elevation, you need to know which division the metal railing belongs to. Should it belong to CSI MasterFormat, Division 5, Metal or Division 10, Specialty? Metal handicap grab bars belongs to Division 10, Specialty, yet metal railing belongs to, Division 5, Metal. Sometimes it is confusing, and NCARB will test you to make sure you know the difference.
