    I have spent many of nights looking over previous threads about beginners. Many have mentioned "The Snowplowing Handbook" by Charles D. Smith. But most of those post were back in 2000. Can anyone up-date or comment on this? Plus Sean Adams offers literature, again any updates? Both are about the same price. If I can I what to avoid getting the same info by two different people. Is there anything else that is new and exciting. Just Trying to save everyone some time by not repeating the same discussions, and not wasting my money.

    Thanks for your help,

    Snow Magazine offers a snow removal book on its web site -- www.snowmagazineonline.com -- in the bookstore section. It's a pretty good into guide to snowplowing. Also you can sign up for the magazine for free.

    I've called the magazine's editor in the past when I had a couple of questions and the guy was helpful.

    Hope thishelps.

    Try www.sima.org

    They should have what you are looking for.

    The guide you suggest is or was required for the CSP test. That should tell you something about it.
