This manual on current building materials technology and selling, together with a separate answer key for the self-study assignments, contains detailed product information purchased from The Retail Lumber Dealers Foundation of Rochester, New York, teaching guidelines, behavioral objectives, and occupational information. Developed by means of a grant-in-aid for a research project, this manual is intended for on-the-job training of distributive education students, the building materials employee, and for professional building materials and home improvement salesmen. A wide range of study assignments, intended for use with a related document on home improvement selling (available as VT 019 536 in this issue), includes questions for students, student projects, and lists of required references. Several visual aids illustrate the text, which with the answer key, is 3-hole punched for easy insertion or removal of pages. Covering subjects ranging from lumber to cement, each topical unit includes term definitions and worksheets. (AG)
