My well-loved copy of this book has helped me though several courses and done so excellently. It has an even balance of theory and practical applications. For each topic there is usually a few paragraphs of explanation, then some formula derivations, then an example. The examples are critical, I have worked through almost all of them at this point and they are really helpful.
Book arrived as prompted by seller.The book is poorly organized as student has to jump around from one chapter to another. Meaning you start chapter 2 and then chapter 5 for next chronicle concept covered. Examples are ok.
This book is garbage. I would highly suggest buying it from someone that will take it back. All of my pages fell out of the bindings and are just hanging out between other pages. I would much rather have bought an e-edition of the book because then at least it might have lasted longer
I was required to purchase this book for an entry level hydrology class. Even now, I continually refer back to it as a reference in my graduate level classes. The book comprehensively introduces you to most aspects of hydrology and hydraulics, with examples and case studies that really reinforce the basics. Hang on to it after your class -- you'll find it's a super handy resource.
It is the correct book for my masters class, but I a week after I bought the book the pages started falling out, and the binding/pages separated from the cover. I would recommend spending the extra money to buy a better quality book. I will now have to spend close to $200 to buy another copy somewhere else.
This book is awesome. Contents and examples are great . Binding, paper quality is perfect. Very handy for students and professional.
