From The Introduction "How to Use This Book"
This book is intended to serve a dual purpose.
First, as the title suggests, it is intended to serve as a comprehensive manual for practicing land surveyors. If you are a practicing surveyor, you will find it to be an invaluable and frequently used addition to your library. I keep one copy on the bookshelf next to my desk in my office and another copy in my home library. That way, it is always available for easy reference.
Second, because of its comprehensive coverage, it is an ideal resource for people preparing for the Fundamentals of Land Surveying (FLS) examination. (It is also an ideal textbook for instructors teaching review courses for the FLS.) This book may also be used as a study aid for the Principles and Practice of Land Surveying (PLS) exam, but it should be recognized that since it is intended as a comprehensive manual of fundamental principles rather than an in-depth analysis of any particular area of surveying, it may not be suitable as a stand-alone study guide for all portions of the PLS.
