I bought this book to improve my understanding of terminology and techniques in engineering geology in preparation for the fundamentals of geology test for licensing. This book did help, and I believe a more thorough reading and effort will be a rewarding endeavorment.

This is one of the best books for civil engineers who want to know and study about geology and engineering geology. From the simple geological concept to the groundwater geology, this book covers a wide range of subjects in geology.

Compared to other engineering books this is not as user friendly. Some of the equations are randomly written out in word form in the middle of a block of text so if you are scanning through for an equation you won't find it. Additionally some equations are only in diagrams so you need to check those too. In general it is very hard to just find one specific piece of information in this book, the index isn't particularly helpful either.

Very confusing English,i wonder some sentences are grammatically incorrect. I have never come across a such a horrible book.I bought this for my school or else,would never spent a cent on such a poor composition. If it isn't a necessity DON'T BUY IT! if it is , PLEASE go to a library and go through the book before you buy it. good luck

The book I received has about one or two pages at most per chapter with page numbers. This is absolutely ridiculous and makes the contents and index almost useless for looking anything up.

I'm not sure if it's just my copy or all the paperback versions, but if you want to be able to look stuff up from the contents/index, you may have to buy the hardback version.

If it's just my copy, I'd like to give a big thank you to the seller... I'll just go through and write in all 500+ page numbers.

I bought this book strictly for a class, and used it as strictly. I barely used it for more than to do the weekly assigned homework from the end of each chapter. If you can get the problems from a friend, anything in this book can probably just be Googled instead.
