Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I purchased this text for a soils and foundation class. On the surface, the text is well put together and it provides clear explanations and calculations to a wide range of soil problems. This book is a keeper because of the ease of the reading and illustrations.
I took a soils class at another school and that course was more speculative and the text I had for that class doesn't compare to this text. This text is more practical and application based which gives you a more hands on feel.
If you are taking a soils course and this is not the required text; I would recommend it as a reference for you.
Good luck in your studies and always remember "NEVER CALL IT DIRT!"
Dirt is dirty and soil is a natural resource of the earth's minerals. :-)
Surprisingly clear, concise, easy to understand, well-written textbook. I work for a state DOT and still use it as one of my regular reference.
This is a good reference book for PE exam in geoetechnical depth. However, you can not rely completely on this book. About 70% it will cover, but you should also study the other prime text books like Joseph Bowles, BM Das, etc. Anyway, it is a good book, lot of example problems, that will help you to prepare for the exam.
