5Exceptional even applies to newer versions
By A Customer
I can't emphasize how true the previous reviewer's statement that "It is almost impossible to learn the full power of the Timberline Precision Estimating programs by studing the Timberline manuals. It's like trying to learn a foreign language with only a pocket dictionary. This book walks you through the concepts and structure of the program, so that the various pieces form a logical whole."
I would add that it has more indepth coverage than the training and users manuals.
Although this book only applies to the older DOS versions, I have found it invavluable to newer Windows 6.1 and 6.5 versions. In particular, how to organize and structure databases and assemblies. How grouping and sorting functions work for report. How to create smart assemblies. I just wish the authors would update this book for the newer Windows versions.

5Excellent guide
By Robert L. Yorke Jr.
It is almost impossible to learn the full power of the Timberline Precision Estimating programs by studing the Timberline manuals. It's like trying to learn a foreign language with only a pocket dictionary. This book walks you through the concepts and structure of the program, so that the various pieces form a logical whole. You learn to exploit the power of the program, rather than curse the complexity. The chapters on work packages, and especially the "intelligent work packages" are worth ten times the purchase price.
I highly recommend this book for any student of Timberline Estimating. I hope Mark Reich and Jud Youell are working on an updated version for the latest Timberline Estimating "windows" products.
