What's new? (as of 7:30 PM, 21 December 2012):
  1. For the first time, I am posting the student comments -- good and bad -- from the course evaluation.
    In some cases, I have added replies. Caveat emptor!
  2. The current version of the Fall 2012 Schedule of Classes is dated 6 December 2012.
  3. The textbook for CE361 is Fundamentals of Transportation Engineering by Fricker and Whitford.
    • Try to get the fifth (or newer) printing of the 1st edition.
      How do you know if you have the fifth printing?
      1. Look on the reverse side of the title page.
      2. Find the line between "Printed in the United States of America" and "ISBN: 0-13-035124-5" toward the bottom of the page.
      3. If that line is "10 9 8 7 6 5", you have the fifth printing.
