Good but has a ton of issues
I have had this book for about three months now, its been a good book but recently as I have gotten further into it I am finding more and more mistakes in it. I have had problems where i use a table in the book and it says to interpolate and you can't even get the values they get in the example. Overall they need to check the math in the book and update the references they use many of them have been updated and not recently either.

This book came but wasn't complete. It was missing all of the pages with the tables/formulas. Strangely enough, it had the exact same title, ISBN, and version/year as the books others had in class, but it was about 1/2 as thick. I guess it was printed wrong. Sent it back for a refund.

Informational for any Traffic Engineer
Informational and useful book, but binding on front cover is slightly damaged
