I've been using this book for more than 12 years of practice (several editions) and I found it's the best for both students and practicing engineers. One of the good things about it is that it covers the theory as well as the code provisons for practice and makes the logical connections in the shortest wy it can be done.

This book is very good for practitioners who need to look up something they have forgotten. It can be useful for beginning students, but as far as understanding concepts is concerned, MacGregor's is the best. For a beginner, Nilson's book sometimes gets too cluttered. MacGregor's book covers almost everything in Nilson's book, but with greater emphasis on conceptual understanding.

Format: Hardcover
The notable thing about this Book by Nilson, Darwin and Dolan is that it covers not only the Design of Concrete Structures but also the the behavior of various elements, an understanding of which is absolutely necessary for the design Engineer. The background of the provisions of ACI 318 code is clearly explained. The examples and homework problems may be quite useful to the students. It also covers emerging topics such as strut-and-tie models, which are useful in situations when the usual beam theories are not valid. The text also presents Earthquake detailing and the various types of structural systems applications, which are of great help to the practising engineers. Hope they will bring out the 14th edition soon, in line with ACI 318-2005.

I have read 2 books for Dr. Nilson, Design of Concrete Structures and Design of Prestressed Concrete. What differentiates Dr. Nilson's books from others' is his special way of verbalising concepts. Dr. Nilson's books take readers or engineers deep into the concepts. Also, Dr. Nilson mentions the background behind the code requirements. Dr. Nilson knows how to select the proper words to explain. I adhore his style. If you want to understand concrete design, read Dr. Nilson's books.

I read this book with board members of Iranian Concrete Institute and find it useful for students and civil engineers, Arthur H Nilson write this book very friendly, I must say I found this book very interesting for both students and teachers and very good reference for study in academic classes.

I actually enjoy reading this text book. The theory is well written, and the examples and derivations are easy to follow and understand. As an Engineering student of Junior standing, I believe this is the best written text book I have ever purchased.

Good concrete textbook for college courses, and a good reference to keep in the future. Not much else to say...

Unless you absolutely need this book, don't buy it. I've been able to get along in my class by just using the ACI 318-08 and class notes. I've opened the book maybe twice in four weeks of class.
