This manual provides a review for land licensing examinees, a reference for surveyors and students, and a summary of the profession of surveying for others.

Multiple choice questions follow the review of each subject. At the end of each chapter, these questions and problems are explained and/or solved. The explanations often have additional teaching points. A unique feature is discussion of the many 'logical distractors' in the multiple choice questions. The purpose of this is to develop skills in analyzing multiple choice questions as well as provide additional teaching points.
