Sandstone and carbonate petrography is commonly given in a separate course.
The subject matter includes topics generally covered in courses entitled Sedimentology or Sedimentation.
Discussion of principles and processes is found in complimentary texts, such as Leeder's (1982) Sedimentology: process and product and selected readings in professional journals.

For these reasons I have omitted petrographic methods, with the exception of those applying to heavy minerals.
For these reasons some topics presented in this book are not necessarily covered in all courses.
Others may be done outside of the classroom.
Furthermore, this topic is covered in several current texts.
Similarly some instructors may find that their favorite topic is missing.
This book is not an exhaustive treatise of laboratory techniques and theory.

Several chapters contain precise exercises to be completed by the student.
I have included a rather extensive discussion of heavies because this topic is generally lacking in most modern texts.
Every course in sedimentology is highly individualistic and material covered varies with the interests, background, and point of view of the instructor.
It gives detailed descriptions of sedimentary features and the analytical methods used to evaluate them and is intended to support and reinforce principles presented in lectures.
Some must be done in the classroom, where specimens are available for study.
I can only hope that this problem is minimal
