5.0 out of 5 stars Water Resources at your finger tips! 9 Sep 2000
By Iftekhar Ahmed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Larry W. Mays has written an outstanding text that provide students with a complete picture of water resources engineering by integrating the fundamental concepts of fluid mechanics, hydraulics, hydrology, and contaminant transport processes. The material in the text is presented from first principles, is rigorous, is relevant to the practice of water resources engineering, and is reinforced by detailed presetations of design applications. A text worth having next to vintage books on this subject in W-R engineers' library.

2.0 out of 5 stars Water Resources Engineering 7 Jun 2008
By E. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is loaded with good information, but we found errors in key hydraulic formulas, which quickly led me not to trust anything out of the book. The sad part is, this was a required text for an engineering class. Maybe the new edition has remedied the problems, but I wouldn't recommend the edition I bought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Textbook 6 July 2010
By Doug - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
One of my coworkers had this book, I kept using it as a reference so I eventually bought my own copy. It is an outstanding textbook and an important reference book to have on hand. I highly recommned it. It is far better than the "Hydraulic Engineering" textbook I had in college.
