Concrete Curing

I'm wondering what the proper curing method for a concrete tower base is.  I
have a home "do it yourself" book which claims that concrete should either be
covered with plastic (to hold the moisture in) or burlap which is kept moist
for about 5-7 days.  

I haven't in recent history seen any residential concrete work (driveways,
sidewalks,etc.) which has received this type of curing.  

The type of tower base I'm interested is 3' X 3' X 4.5' deep for Rohn 45.  It
seems to me that a tower base is much different than a driveway or sidewalk,
and what happens at the surface will have little bearing on the concrete a
foot down.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance,
