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.

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.

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.

A very good book on water chemistry from environmental perspective. It is mostly understandable and easy to follow even for a non-chemist. I definitely wish I'd know better these topics in our practice of preparing and maintaining growth media for algal cultures.

Very difficult to understand. Author could use a much more reader friendly writing style. And I'm in engineering.
