    Having both the Ballast and Kaplan versions is popular, but Ballast wins in accuracy. Review by Amazon.com Customer
    Overall
    Covers 6 divisions; Practice management, Project Management, Programming & Analysis, Project Planning & Design, Project Development & Documentation, and Construction & Evaluation. It is a huge book of 1088 pages and weighing in at 5.2 pounds. It seemed heavier than that so I put it on the digital scale, sure enough 5.2. It comes with a hefty price tag but for a book that you can use for a lifetime it is more than a worthwhile investment. Unfortunately you really do need the supplemental books by the author which themselves are a bit expensive. Fortunately it is a popular practice to sell the supplemental books used when done with them. With the hefty price tag there is a really good demand for them. This review manual for the ARE is often kept though as a long term reference.

    The back of the book has a vast index so every terms is referenced. This makes it a consortium of easily accessible information for every topic. It is basically a dry read, after all it is a technical manual. The Ballast book here is often preferred because it is more focused and accurate over the Kaplan which is known for blatant errors. However having both is popular because each provides some unique content. (Posted on 11/7/2016)

    Excellent Review by Chris
    Overall
    The material is presented in a very ordered and concise method. I believe the subject matter is presented much better in comparison with the previous Ballast Review Manual for ARE 4.0 I have used. I was also pleasantly surprised that most of the material is new rather than copied from the ARE 4.0 manual. (Posted on 10/18/2016)
