Better check with them prior to placing the order so that they'll send you the edition you need. Based on their ad, I've ordered the 5th edition, only to be informed by mail that it's the 3rd I'll get, which was already shipped, and that I can return it to them (?). Why they didn't tell me before they shipped?

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great intro book on Soil Mechanics. Jan. 9 2004
Format:Hardcover
I just finished taking a intro Soil Mechanics class using this book. We completed all 16 chapters which is quite a feat for any engineering class.
I thought the book was very good at laying out the conceptual aspects of soil mechanics and it was very easy to read through, espcially for an engineering book. The book has lots of illustrations and pictures (B&W). The books chapter layout was a little bass ackwards (Ch 11-14). The book has a fair amount of sample problems, at least one for every concept. However Engineering students regarding solved problems are like crack addicts on the streets, you can never have enough of what you desire.
I would actually rate this book a 4.5/5.0......but I had to round up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Much to be desired. Aug. 8 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I first bought this book as a required text for a couple of my modules in school. This book is very effective when it comes to presenting the mathematical formula, examples and graphs. However, the discussions of tests and soil behaviour left much to be desired.
This book would be suitable for people who just started on soil mechanics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Geotechnical Engineering Book Oct. 21 2010
By promag - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It's an excellent book for engineers' use as recommended by a prof teaching the course. There are also newer versions of this textbook, but I am very happy to have this 4th edition. In addition, there is "Geotechnical Engg-A practical Problem Solving Approach" book that I recommend (ISBN-1-60427-016-7) that supports the textbook with good problem solving engineering examples. It should be also in your library if you deal with soil mechanics and designs.
