Download Construction Project Scheduling and Control Second Edition by Saleh Mubarak easily in PDF format for free.

Five years have passed since my book Construction Project Scheduling and Control came out. The response was more than encouraging. I received correspondence from several countries—comments, suggestions, requests for solutions, and simple complements. The simplicity was the most praised trait of the book. I was so happy and proud when the language editor (of the first edition) corrected me regarding an activity’s total float in an example in the book. She was not a technical person but learned the Critical Path Method while linguistically reviewing my book.

During the past five years, I used my book in my seminars and college classes. I discussed it with my friends, colleagues, and students. I kept a log of all suggestions and corrections. I was thinking of the second edition just after the first one came out in 2004, just like a basketball coach thinking of the next season while in the current season. Although I was very happy and content with the way the book came out and was received, I discovered that there is no such thing as perfect human product. Imperfection is part of our nature as human beings, but we should think positively about it; there is always room for improvement.
