I used this book for my first course in Hydraulics and thought this book was pretty good. The material is organized well and the chapters get right to the point, I thaught one improvement that could be made would be to put more examples in the text.

Urban Hydrology, Hydraulics, and Stormwater Quality: Engineering Applications and Computer Modeling

This is a nicely written, compact text. I have used it for a beginning hydrology course. It gets the point across without burying the reader in unnecessary details. I would recommend it for beginning hydrology courses in civil engineering programs as well as for practicing engineers who need a reference text or need to brush up on hydrology

This book is well written and takes you back a step or two had you forgotten the basic principles of fluid mechanics or open channel flow. The example problems are very helpful and the small book size makes it nice to carry around. Quite pricy but a great reference to have around for most hydraulic applications.

Gives one example per section and is the simplest example to give. Does not provide enough background and explanation for the material.
