Hello Everyone,

I recently purchased the new 12th Edition of CERM as I begin preparation for the April 2012 exam. While perusing the text I noted pages 36-11 to 40-4 missing, essentially missing four chapters! Important Ones too - Shallow Foundations, Retaining Walls, Piles/Deep Foundations, Excavations, etc. Yikes. I'll contact PPI to inform them, but just want to give everyone a heads up because I'm certain my book is not the only one.

Thanks,
Jason

I just checked my copy; printing number 1; 12th edition. I don't have any pages missing that I've been informed of. I had loaned it out for the October session and the individual brought it back with no complaints or concerns.

PPI should make it right. Good luck.

Jason, where did you buy yours? Did you buy it new or used?

Also if you are also appearing for structural PM , can you tell me what reference books you are planning to buy?

Hi Josh,

Yes, they did respond immediately and corrected the problem. I just returned home from traveling this week and sure enough a new book was on my doorstep with all pages included. I can even keep the old one!! So if you need a new CERM wih almost 4 missing chapters I can get you a deal....

I am taking Construction.
