4.0 out of 5 stars Good Review Book. July 19, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used this book a lot for exam prep. It's easy to read. It's not highly technical, but it's thorough in a simplistic way. It's really good when used with an exam prep guide as a reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review September 10, 2012
By JM1959
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For anyone who is in the water treatment field this book is a must. Handy size, and the information is very helpful. Sample problems, and calculations in the back of the book are a great training aid.
