This book was easy to read and follow along with. The information is mostly well laid out and the example problems are ok, could use more. Biggest downside was that the answers were not in the text.

I used this book in class. It isn't the most modern-looking or modern-feeling book by any means. However, the information is provided in a straight forward and simple way. There isn't too much unnecessary elaboration like many other textbook authors try to do to prove their credentials to the reader. At a personal level, I personally found the book really interesting. The information presented here was different than the average engineering book. This was a more of a guideline for design and explanation for why things the way they are - not a list of equations that you blindly follow. The examples are worked out clearly and everything seems to make sense right away. The book is relatively basic (at least my understanding of what basic is) but not boring. Good for people that want to understand whats going on. Its also not too math involved. As I said before, the different sections tend to outline the basics of a topic (concrete for example) and then the author goes step by step explaining how to design a mix for a specific purpose and how every property you choose will affect the outcome. Chances are you don't have a choice in whether to buy the book or not since its for a class, but if not, for what its worth, I recommend it.

Concise and "cutting-to-the-chase". I would use those words to reflect about what I have read so far from this book. Great deal and it came in an awesome condition.

This used book is exactly identical as the one you need for you course! Although the cover page is different from what you see here, the content inside is exactly the same. The paper quality is acceptable while the price is a lot lower. The customer service is really good. I recommend it!

I found and still find this text to be simple in my studies. It constantly provides and explains practical applications of the material. Although there is some theory, most of the text applies the engineering theory to the real world, helpful for infusion into the field and application in the lab.

This would be such a great book if it weren't so vague on the explanation on mix design and superpave. It's sometimes hard to follow the examples. Especially on the mix design.
