The Art of Reading Smoke was a great class given by Dave Dodson. The only thing I would suggest is MORE VIDEOS.

The Art of Reading Smoke is one of the best classes you will ever take in your career. If you think you know it all now, take the class and really find out.

Dodson's class is awesome and well worth the time. Provides some great info to help you gauge what level of fire you're dealing with and what's involved, which will help to gauge how much water you need. (Not a catch all, but great information just the same).
Relates to another thread about line selection, which reading smoke and other conditions should guide. Just a can, or an OH! a booster (very much has it's place), 1 3/4", 2 1/2", etc.
Really drives it home, if you can't gauge how much water you need on a situation, you shouldn't be in the seat.FTM-PTB-RFB
