A reference book for professionals or researchers, is not appropriate for an undergraduate course.
This book does what it sets out to do...however you should not use this book to learn general principles of aquatic chemistry. This book is intended for upper levels of study. Also, almost all programs used to model natural water systems are based on this book, so if that is what you intend to do I suggest this book.
This book is the recommended text for my graduate level distance education environmental studies course. Unfortunately I feel it is pitched a couple of levels higher and, as I have no direct access to my tutors for explanation of the workings of problems, somewhat frustrating. The examples given tantalise one into feeling that an understanding has been reached, only to snatch this away with the introduction of unexplained values into equations that take a real expert to worry out. While usefully providing problems at the end of each chapter no solutions are provided thus rendering the exercise frustrating for those of us struggling to understand.
