    While informative and covers a lot of content (police and private investigations, legal processes, chain of custody, working with live machines and copies, mobile phone forensics, and more), it's a little about a lot. I guess that's the point, as it's essentially an introduction. However, a number of the labs were close to impossible since they relied on demo versions of paid software that you could only get by contacting the vendor. I did so (along with other classmates and professors), and nev While informative and covers a lot of content (police and private investigations, legal processes, chain of custody, working with live machines and copies, mobile phone forensics, and more), it's a little about a lot. I guess that's the point, as it's essentially an introduction. However, a number of the labs were close to impossible since they relied on demo versions of paid software that you could only get by contacting the vendor. I did so (along with other classmates and professors), and never heard back. I had similar experiences with software which has the same capabilities as those taught in the book. If not for that, I would have found the guide more useful if the tools were available, as the book provides step by step instructions.

    I didn't like how this book was organized. I felt like it honed in on details without giving enough perspective for the details to make sense. Maybe it just wasn't written at college students taking the course at this level, but I got a lot more out of the lectures, discussions and projects than the book.

    Well written and covering a lot of topics but to a minimal level. Recommended for a computer forensic student, perhaps less so for a computer forensic practitioner.
