Advantage 400 Spot-On Solution for Dogs (25 - 40kg)
Advantage 400 Spot-On Solution for Dogs (25 - 40kg)
Offered by Animal Dispensaries
Price: £12.94

5.0 out of 5 stars it's spot on, 24 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived on time. Treated my collie straight away. Fleas gone within 1 1/2 days. Previously used frontline which didn't clear the fleas so i can only assume they are resistant as they were so persistent. On this result cannot recommend Advantage more.

4.0 out of 5 stars AutoCad 2002, 9 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Mastering AutoCAD 2002 (Paperback)
This book was purchased after reading "Introduction to AutoCAD 2002" which was bought to teach myself the basics of CAD drawing.
After the initial shock of the amount of information included I found it to be useful and informative to build up my skills. I cannot say I am totally proficient as yet but step by step approach employed by the author certainly helps you to build on your skills.

Not easy to find this slim line set in local shops to replace those recently lost.

Ordered and received with 7 day and very happy with the product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spons 2011??, 9 Aug. 2011
The book gives good information to cover most requirements to be able to budget and price.

Unfortunately the estimating software that comes with the book is disappointing due to the limitation imposed and the lack of net unit rate build-up, which presumably is to encourage the purchase of the full product. The ability to export to Excel the extracted items is useful and can help save time but is somewhat frustrating due to the lack of separation into labour/materials/plant etc. for adjustment of prices.

Notwithstanding the above Spons provides a reliable data base for estimating the costs of small or major projects and as such will continue to be used by me for the foreseeable future.


Estimating for Builders and Surveyors
Estimating for Builders and Surveyors

Price: £26.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and informative, 9 Aug. 2011
Good examples given clearly set out with explanation and logical reasoning. However traditional roofing structure not dealt with in any detail which seem to be a mistake in what is otherwise a good reference for the basic estimator/builder.
