    good book

    I had bought this book to prepare for IFS (forest service) exam. Me being not from a geology background, it was bit tricky in the beginning. However, the book starts from the basic and is easy to grasp the concepts. If you can select and study the required sections from this books, you can attend any questions from sedimentology in IFS. Good luck!
