Barry's Advanced Construction of Buildings
Barry's Advanced Construction of Buildings
by Stephen Emmitt
Edition: Paperback
Price: 28.19

5.0 out of 5 stars A great construction book, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellently written book and would serve well for any construction technology, building surveying or basic structures modules. The depth that is gone into in this book is well worth the price, it is great for general and even more specific stuff like concrete production.
Diagrams are plenty and pretty useful, also every diagram can be downloaded from the books website so this is great for coursework (if you reference properly). The only thing is the diagrams are not in colour.
I bought this book and the introduction version, it might be worth just being the package together for a saving.

2.0 out of 5 stars Backed up already, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had this a bout a year now. I initially really liked the features like e-print but it has pretty much backed up now. I recently bought new ink (I have always used HP certified, and this time is no different) and it will not print the correct colours so it's useless now. Also, it has never produced good prints. The colours run very quickly and it looks unprofessional, you couldn't use it for serious work.

The scan feature works well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yeah, 7 May 2014

How great is this! Two well made cartoon movies back to back for a decent price. Two separate DVD disks. Both films are really fun to watch. I am an adult and I enjoy this, however some people are talking about letting children see these films and I would say no since there is a little sexual innuendo.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Iron Man, 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like the concept, it is a true likeness and it is made pretty well. However, the tractable port became lose quite soon after I had it, still works fine I just have to hold it to insert into the USB port. I took a while for delivery but worth the wait, excellent price and never had any issues with documents loading on to it. It is also fast.


Evans RealFeel 7 inch Apprentice Practice Pad
Evans RealFeel 7 inch Apprentice Practice Pad
Price: 17.19

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, new to practice pads, 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my first practice pad, I chose it because it is 7' rather than 6'. I really like it. Its sturdy, hard and has a good bouncy. It arrived much earlier then expected. The price is decent. Only pad point is the wood around the actual pad could do with some sanding but its totally fine. Very happy. Thanks Amazon!


Understanding Structures: Analysis, Materials, Design
Understanding Structures: Analysis, Materials, Design
by Derek Seward
Edition: Paperback
Price: 37.59

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so good., 6 Oct 2012
This book was quite high up on my reading list for one of modules. After reading a few chapters I realized this is not going to be a good read. For an introductory text some things are too complex. The author begins the text with an overview which claims to accommodate both analytical and mathematical thinkers. And where possible avoid mathematical approaches analytical, however after flipping through the other chapters there is an equation on almost every page.

Not appropriate as a solid text but okay to check out the library.

How to Set-Up Your Mapex Drum Set- A Step-by-step Guide to Getting Started with Your New Kit - DVD

5.0 out of 5 stars Liked it, 22 May 2012
I enjoyed this drum instructional DVD. Dom is great to listen to with a lot of experience, I found the step up relatively easy. In the DVD Dom puts the drum kit (a Mapex VX) together himself but really it requires two people especially when setting up the bass drum.

Towards the end he plays a few beats to get the beginner started which were also helpful. This is great for young players 9-12. Although maybe a little dated now since they do not make the drum kit he was setting up.

A thorough guide to construction materials. With great emphasis on chemical composition pertaining to each material. Timber and metals covered with great depth. It is written very well.
This is good for any material science papers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not that great, 22 May 2012
I did not find this text particularly useful. I found that there were several topics either not covered or not adequately covered. Additionally I did not find it enjoyable to read and the written style wasn't great. However, since it is an introduction it fits that purpose and one would need to pick additional texts to support the knowledge found in this book.
