5.0 out of 5 stars Best surveying reference there is 4 Jun 2007
Bannister & Raymond has been THE standard reference text book for students in construction surveying for 40 years and more. I used it for O and A levels in Land Surveying in the 1960s, and it is still the text today for BTEC courses. It's the kind of book you hand down to your kids!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent surveying text 26 May 2001
By Concerned Reader - Published on Amazon.com
This text is a continuation of the high quality of earlier editions. It covers modern methods, without completely removing some of the more useful older methods of work. It is delivered in a compact form, without any loss of depth. Also, it is at least $14 cheaper than any comparable US surveying text.
Well-tested methods are provided here, and the text is sufficiently comprehensive to cover several courses at a range of different levels. This would cover a great deal of what is needed for an associates degree program, and the foundation of a Bachelors program (1.5 years of the main program). This is far better than most books in this field, and it is a better book.
Being a British book, there are a few limitations for the US market. The book is metric, which will pain a few people in the US who can't handle this (but then why are they in the surveying game?). The terminology is British (e.g. 'staff' vs 'rod'), but this is a relatively minor concern, and will expose students to the idea that Surveying is a multi-national discipline, especially important with FIG being based in the US at the moment. There is no coverage of cadastral issues, including PLSS, but that can be obtained from other works, and doesn't apply to all parts of the US, as it happens.
Highly recommended. It is the OSU text for Surveying and Geomatics Engineering students.
