4Good book for collection
By Mind games
Good book to have in collection. Not every book can have everything you need to know in it. It takes a collection of good books and this should be one of them. This book has a lot of common use formulas. I was disappointed not to see the phase diagram but maybe I have missed it. It's written like I used to prepare my test notes which is with just enough description of the equation and a definition for each component of the equation. I'm definitely satisfied with my purchase.

UPDATE: I have been using the book a little more and it does have good value. My only issue is that the book seems to be written too formal. For example, I was looking for Phase Diagrams originally but could not find it. Turns out it is in the section titles "Relationship of Weights and Volumes in Soils". Haha, I would have never found Phase Diagrams based on that title. I ended up finding it by using the Table of Contents and going to Chapter 8 titles "Soil and Earthwork Formulas" and just flipping through it. I am going to spend some time and make my own hand notes on the Table of Contents. For the PE, I photocopied the ToC and blew it up so I would have room to write.
