I like Gaylord, Gaylord & Stallmeyer's "Design of Steel Structures," Third 
Edition published by McGraw-Hill.  It discusses in parallel ASD and LRFD 
steel design and incorporates "Design Plates" that show actual hand 
calculations.  It runs about US$100, so check it out at your university 
library first.  (Amazon reports that it is out of print, but they have 13 new 
and used copies starting at about US$17.00)
