"I was glad to see this title revived! I will use it next semester. I was also glad to see the lower price!" -- Joseph Ryan, University of Colorado

"I have used Benjamin's book for a half-dozen years because of the clarity of presentation of primary concepts in acid/base, metal/liquid, and redox reactions. I will enjoy the book even more at the lower price." -- Robert Arnold, University of Arizona

"I was glad to see you have corrected the typographical errors in the previous publisher's version." -- Paul Chadik, University of Florida

"Thorough and well-organized with extensive problems." -- Paul Anderson, Illinois Institute of Technology

Format: Paperback
This is the intermediate level water chemistry book and is a good text book to both learn and teach from. Benjamin's "Water Chemistry" is more comprehensive then Drever's "The Geochemistry of Natural Waters" but less comprehensive then Stumm and Morgan's "Aquatic Chemistry." The intended audience is upper level undergraduate or the first year graduate student, and assumes the reader already has a grasp of basic chemical concepts and thermodynamics. Chemistry majors will find the most of the material easy while students who are weak in chemistry will find it incredibly hard to follow. If you are more interested in geology and mineral geochemistry try Drever's "The Geochemistry of Natural Waters." If you are looking for a water chemistry book with more specific applications try Stumm and Morgan's "Aquatic Chemistry." Mark Benjamin's "Water Chemistry" book is a happy medium between the two and can be used as a reference.

Format: Hardcover
The book is good for teaching particularly for undergraduate student who have basic knowledge of chemistry. I used it as the main reference book for one of the courses that I teach in the field of water chemistry. I am surprise to read that the book is complicated although I faced this problem with my students.

the author of this book assume you have well-taught chemistry background therefore most of the solutions to example problems are simplified, the charts are confusing and hard to understand, many of the chemistry related constants provided in this book are incorrect... if you didn't score an A in chemistry II, it's not likely to be able to get through the book without the guidance of your professor.

I completed this class about three years ago, so I can't remember all the specifics on the book. However, I thought the textbook is a good read, explaining the water chemistry concepts well, particularly about pH. If you need a textbook on water chemistry, this is a good one to have, in my opinion.
