**Product Details**

Construction competency tests are usually book tests. An understanding of formulas, equations, areas and volumes and other math fundamentals is essential if many of the problems on these tests are to be solved correctly.

The Atlas Basic Construction Math Review, 3rd Edition was written to help you learn or re-learn these arithmetic, algebra and geometry fundamentals. Some mathematicians might say that all of the “usual” basic math topics are not covered in the following pages – and they’re right. Only those math basics that will help you pass that competency test are discussed in this manual.

Self-study with any book requires much discipline and diligence. Some time-proven tips have been listed to help you know how to study and gain the most benefit for your time invested. 104pp.
