I have the National Electrical Estimator, & it is fairly easy to use, & resonably allows you to change any of the prices, & has the ability to enter mark-up for different catagories.
Comes with a CD & a paperback book.
I've found their labor estimates (for time required) to be very close, & their material prices seem to be a little higher than I find here in Kentucky.
