Product Description

Prepared for the Nevada Construction Business and Law Exam as a study guide and open book reference.  

The general business and law or “CMS” exam is open book and this book is allowed to be taken with you when you sit for the exam.

The book is organized into 3 sections.

Part 1 focuses on business planning and start up. This section will help you formulate a business plan, choose a business structure, understand licensing and insurance requirements and gain basic management and marketing skills.

Part 2 is centered on fundamentals that you will need to operate a successful construction business. This section will cover estimating, contract management, scheduling, project management, safety and environmental responsibilities and building good relationships with employees, subcontractors and customers.

Part 3 gives you valuable information for running the administrative function of your business. Financial management, tax basics and lien laws are covered. Effective management of these areas of business is vital and can cause serious problems if you do not give them the proper attention.

    The material did arrive, although it appeared that little consideration was placed when assembling this manual. The cover of the manual was paper thin and had smeared ink markings across the top. The spiral binder coil could have been matched better for the size of the manual or better yet, the contents could have been placed in a hardcover binder.

    Well organized and simply written

    Posted by Christopher Griffin on Dec 26th 2017

    The review should come after the book is thoroughly read, but they are asking me to review it now. it seems to be written in an easily understandable manner.

    I have not taken the test yet so I am not sure how relevant it is to passing the test.

    Has all the information I will need to take the test and more. My order was available for pickup at the PSI store within one day, which was pretty cool. 5 stars would recommend

    Great Book - Buy it from somewhere else

    Posted by Unknown on May 14th 2015

    The book is great, as expected. Unfortunately PSI has not lived up to expectations. I ordered two copies of the book and only one was delivered. I am on hold for the fourth time today, this being my third call to customer service to resolve this issue. No one follows up, no returned phone calls when they say they will. I paid overnight shipping for this. Buy your books elsewhere!!
