5.0 out of 5 stars a must for water resource engineers and students Sept. 23 2003
I took a hydrology course taught by one of the authors (Larry Mays) using this book. Advantages of this book lies in (1) the arrangement of the contents is very logic-oriented, you don't feel aburpt jump from one chapter to another one, (2) the theory addressed in the text is concise, easy to read and understand, (3) the examples used to illustrate the theories are very correlated. Other books may be good too, however, in terms of "hydrology" alone, I haven't seen a better one. It is a useful reference for your understanding of hydrologic design manual, creteria.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT BOOK July 30 2001
A must have reference for those of you guys in the field of Applied Hydrology. If you are tackling the task of modeling some particular hydrologic process, you will find the detailed descriptions and flow charts very handy. Step by step derivations of equations, excellent referencing and convenient chapter setup makes this book a first-to-look reference. Although it is a 1988 print, you will hardly feel it unless you really dig into details like flow routing in meandering rivers.
I believe you will enjoy reading this book...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent hydrology text Nov. 5 2002
This is a well-written and fairly comprehensive textbook for the science and engineering of hydrology, suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses. I used it for a class taught by one of the authors (David Maidment), so it was a natural fit for the class, but I believe that any competent teacher could make good use of it. The example problems are useful and the explanations are clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awsome book Dec 19 2005
By A Customer
I passed the P.E.exam for the first time just as a result of studying
this book. it is not compared to any other Hydrology reference book. if you really want to know what the Hydrology is all about,
then you will have to read this one.
