“While A Practical Guide to Carlson Fundamentals is designed for any and all users of Carlson office applications, including Civil, Survey, Mining and Estimating,” says Ellis, “the new book, A Practical Guide to Carlson Survey, picks up where the Fundamentals book leaves off and focuses in on the survey-specific topics found only in Carlson Survey.”

The set of two books totals almost 700 pages of detailed training content, including 65 lessons and 133 hands-on exercises. This is advanced training material designed for self-study by end users and for use in schools and for reseller training courses.

“The Practical Guide books have been formatted to maximize learning by starting all lessons with an explanation of the concepts and processes that will be covered,” Ellis adds. “This is followed by real world examples in step-by-step exercises that you can perform yourself with the included dataset.”
