The video lessons (obtained by signing into Ghilani's book website) were very helpful in understanding the material that is covered in the book. In fact, if a person does not have a teacher/lecturer, Ghilani himself does an awesome job of "esplainin" the surveying to you in a step-by-step method. His calm, steady voice is clear and understandable and if you don't get the topic the first time, you can rewind the video.
So far, this is my favorite survey book and I will use this for years to come.
