I paid $160 for your Guide to Computer Forensics and Investigations (with DVD) on as I needed the DVD to do class assignments, and the DVD doesn't work. I've tried two laptops already. Also, where is the "access code" we are told we get for online material??? This is a lot of money to spend for a non functional DVD and no access code. I could of rented the book for much cheaper but paid full price so I had these two items, and I don't' have either.

This is very good for beginners. I am on the third chapter and learning a lot. Also, it confirms some of the choices that I have made in the past about various certifications and standards. It is used a textbook for a master program but it reads like an undergrad book to this point.

Some of the information in this book is dated, but it is presented in a way that guides the reader to find up-to-date information. This book is good for both learning and for future reference material.

This is a great read for anyone taking a course on the subject, or who just wants to expand their knowledge. It is easy to understand and well organized. My only complaint would be that some of the software used for the activities can be unstable.

Not able to download on kindle, open case with digital department 2 months ago. No one got back to me and I finally asked again and they want the logs now. If I can't use this book in all kindle application then whats the point. My whole semester is finished. Would apply for refund if there is no resolution after I send the logs.

This is a 5th edition. Fifth! So, that means that it's been checked for accuracy, right? Check out this little gem on page 435:"Sendmail is the default for FreeBSD systems, such as CentOS."[...]In case you weren't aware, CentOS is not a FreeBsd-derived operating system.

The book is concise, I certaily like the challenge that book present on the Hand-On Projrects. Chapter three is a little challenge, to all the book is full of knowledge, you need to have lot pacient and time to really read every chapter of the book. My only regret about this book (Fifth Edition) the Forensics videos were not included as in Fourth Editon. Also I boughted on and I did not get the code to register on WWW.CENGAGE.COM

Love this book. Really introduces you to computer forensics. The disk that comes with it brings software you need to do the Case study's and Hands-On Projects. I enjoyed this book a lot as well as the class that I took it for.
