Main Question or Discussion Point

I am looking for notes or a book that covers nicely the calculations for relativistic scatterings (Bhabba, Compton, pair annihilation, Moller, etc. )

Most QFT books, after explaining Feynman diagrams do not give too much details when it comes to cross section and decay rates. Often they put it in the exercise section. So does anyone know a good resource that gives detailed step by step derivations of all the important scattering calculations?

thanks

You should try Halzen & Martin, it covers a quite wide range of reactions.

Also see greiner 'quantum electrodynamics' for step by step derivations of cross section and decay rates.
