Review

"This text offers a streamlined version of the ASTM standards, which is helpful for students. The example data sets provided within the lab experiments are quite valuable, and that is one of the reasons that I like this lab manual."--Charles E. Pierce, University of South Carolina "This lab manual is designed and written in a clear and straightforward manner, which will make lab teaching and understanding easier. That is what students like and want."--Mamadou Fall, University of Ottawa "I like the fact that units are illustrated in the formulas. This manual is simple to read, the illustrations are great, and the order of the experiments matches how I conduct the lab."--Mohamad Mustafa, Savannah State University
