You will find lots of books, but my best advise, and I hope some of the friends here can get the books from http://www.aacei.org it is the reference for cost engineering world wide, and you can check their branch in your place, I am sure they should have a chapter there. Regards .
I have read a lot of books, and actualy established the cost control system in the company I am working with.
However, if you can guide me on practical courses , sofwares or used forms it will be highly apreciated. Do u know a branch for aace in Dubai?
