    I assume you are studying the rest of civil engineering as well so I have included some books that link into these areas.

    For understanding

    Fluid Principles : Vardy. Excellent modern metric book by a civil engineer.

    Hydraulics in Civil Engineering

    Hydraulic Structures : Novak : Latest editions are modern and metric

    Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineering : Chadwick and Morfett: Latest editions are modern and metric

    Essentials of Engineering Hydraulics : Dake : Modern and metric includes coastal engineering.

    Some older good books not necessarily metric

    Fluid Mechanics for Hydraulic Engineers : Hunter Rouse

    Hydraulics and Fluid Mechanics : Lewitt

    Hydraulics : King, Wisler and Woodburn

    Problem Books

    Solutions to problems in Fluid Mechanics : Douglas. Not metric but excellent and clear. In two parts part I elelementary part II advanced.
