I see the book is Print Reading for Construction 6th edition. Is that accurate since there is a 7th edition?

Reviewed by Anonymous on 10/22/2015
Teacher could barely make it through the 3 hours each week. He always seemed exhauuated. Very disorganized and no cohesive lesson plan. While he was an expert in the subject he was not able to share his expertise in a way that would benefit the beginner construction management student. Nice guy but save yourself 12 hours and $300 and look for a better course.
