Book Bundle

Our suggested NASCLA exam prep book bundle linked here uses 19 of the 21 books allowed into the exam with the editions of each book listed. We have found the ACI 318-11 and Construction Project Management are not needed to find information on the exam, as the pertinent information discussed within these books is also found within the other 19 reference manuals. We also offer a pre-tabbed and highlighted version of the bundle, saving you countless hours of tabbing and highlighting the books yourself.

Tabs

Our NASCLA exam prep tabs help mark the commonly referenced sections of the books used in the exam. Don't waste time flipping through your books in the timed exam - our tabs help you to be able to quickly reference important material in your books and move on to the next question without wasting valuable time.
