Good, not great. Ignores the fundamental thing we are all taught: INCLUDE UNITS IN YOUR ANSWERS
on 11 April 2016
It is good, but not great. My biggest frustration comes from the author not bothering to use units in his worked examples. This makes them difficult to follow as you're just looking at clumps of numbers rather than seeing the units and gaining a 'feeling' for what is going on.
My best example of this comes from WE 11.7 - Driven Pile in Sand. I cannot for the life of me figure out what the '0.5' in his calculations represents. Had units been included I could've understood where it came from, instead I am left here now quite annoyed.
If it wasn't for this problem the book would have received 4 or 5 stars.
