Anyway, This book is a must have for anyone planning on taking and passing the ICC exam for the Soils Special Inspector licence. It is permited to be brought in with you to take the test as well as the UBC code books and 70% of the answers for the test can be found in this book. Must have for ICC testers.
This book has 75% of what I knew and, 80% of what I know. TWENTY FIVE YEARS LATER!
Tim I'm gonna kick Your ass.
Instead, it turns out that the book is written by a technician, and the emphasis is on giving practical hands-on advice to technicians regarding how to do their daily job in the field and lab. As a result, the book lacks theoretical background, and there are a few points where the author's understanding and terminology aren't quite correct. Moreover, most of the book consists of an elementary review of some basic points, combined with information which was too mundane to be of use to me.
In short, while this book may be useful to geotechnical technicians, I'm doubtful that many geotechnical engineers will derive much benefit from it. Also, note that the book is only about 200 pages and the font is somewhat large, so the price is high relative to the amount of content.
