Very good overview to permeability of soil - characterizing it and how to perform the tests. Although taught from septic tank point of view, the material is useful at other sites.

Good basic review but riddled with typos and needs to be proofed. Had to pull my own copy of USDA Soil triangle to answer test Q.

. . .Or did I miss the total grams for the sample all together?
Portions of the review have been removed because they disclosed answer to test questions. The reviewer challenged the correct answer to Q24.

The course was interesting (I have not previously had any soil testing experience). I believe it met the stated course objectives.

Course did not recognize that a soil science professional or a geotechnical engineer are the individuals who should be supervising the testing. Referred to NY and NJ regulations rather than the science/technology behind the testing requirements, so not as useful to other jurisdictions.

Course provided excellent information, easy to follow, good graphics. This focused on NY and NJ requirements, so is better for those practicing in those states.
