] in "Computer Spotlights in Ground Water" gave it top rating (5 of 5) for capability and support, high rating (4.7) for ease of use, and medium-high rating (3.8) for reliability. Only two specific criticisms were mentioned, first one tested feared the interpolation routines for the output might hide numerical problems, and there was a general lack of tutorial style documentation.
