This is an excellent textbook for anyone taking an introductory graduate level Environmental Engineering course. For what the professor doesn't mention in the lecture, the textbook will give you. Also, the authors have a creative way of presenting the material, not to mention a sense of humor. I highly recommend this textbook. Oh, did I mention I used this textbook for a graduate level introductory envr. engr. course, and I'm not even an engineer. Awesome text,... if that's possible?!
This book definitely contains useful information, however I was extremely annoyed whenever I had to use it because there is no chapter indicator on any of the pages. I'll be working on one of the end of chapter problems, want to look something up, and instead of being able to easily flip back to the beginning of the chapter you almost have to look it up in the table of contents because it's impossible to tell where in the chapter you are due to lack of labeling. Very, very irritating and time consuming.
Long long descriptions. Useful equations and awesome FE preparation exercises. Would love it if it had a section of Summary Equations... Not enough practice examples on the book. Diagrams are easy to understand, which is awesome. International version is very similar to normal US version, and lighter to carry around on a college backpack for sure... I would not have chosen this book to study from, that's for sure though, unless you are into tedious explanations and not finding things easily.
Yes, this is the international version, but there is no difference between this and the hardcover. All page numbers, units, and sample problems are exactly the same. I own both versions and it is definitely worth the savings to get the paperback.
Ordered the international version because why pay $200 when you can get the exact same book in black and white for $20. This book is the exact same as the Hardcover book as I have gone to bookstore and compared to my international version. Great buy and won't break the bank for college students at $25 with free prime 2 day shipping.
I would recomend this book HIGHLY. If you read and understand it from cover to cover then the Water Resources / Environmental night portion will be a breeze on the waste water side. Still have to know your water resources, but it was a GREAT resource.
Book is overall very good and informative but sometimes the author is not very thorough in explanations or certain parts of the bookand leaves the reader (in my case, the student) very confused.
This aided me in reviewing for the PE exam. not so much in the actual exam itself. But that is more based on this specific exam.
