It's the same with English really. 'Use it or lose it'.

i guess its lucky i dont get marked on that then:{

Just basic maths, with a bit of trigonometry .. for calculations of lengths, areas and volumes

Willis's Elements of Quantity Surveying is a good text book.

The maths is simple really, but the QS profession like all calculations laid out in a specific way, on special QS 'taking off' paper.

What kind of maths are you specifically looking for? Examples?
