Product description

Review

"The book is well written, clearly and precisely, as compared with other soil mechanics books. Students could take a big advantage using this book for independent study."

"The presentation of the book is excellent. I particularly like the fact that many of the example problems are presented in the practical context. This definitely helps engage the students and improve their understanding. This is based on my experience using this textbook and my students' feedback."

"The presentation in the book is easy to follow. The book is written in a way that students can read and understand the presented concepts without difficulties. Illustrations in the book are very clear and have higher quality than those of other books. The problems at the end of each chapter cover all the concepts in that chapter. These problems are similar to those covered by the National Fundamental Engineering (FE) Exam. That is why students prefer to use this book for the preparation of the FE exam."
