    For introductory and intermediate courses in computer forensics, digital investigations, or computer crime investigation By applying information systems, computer security, and criminal justice principles and practices to crime investigations and other legal actions, this text teaches students how to use forensically-sound methodologies and software to acquire admissible electronic evidence (e-evidence) with coverage of computer and email forensics, cell phone and IM forensics, and PDA and Blackberry forensics.Review:

    “I highly recommend this book for beginners and experienced forensics experts. It talks about all possible situations you could encounter from a technological and legal stand point. This book really prepares you for how to be ready for the field and explains everything in a really friendly way. The book is a very easy read but is specific and isn’t vague like other books I have read. You can literally keep reading and not have to take a break.”

    Computer Forensics: Principles and Practices is a great teaching tool for forensic investigators of all skill levels. For a beginner, the book takes you through the investigative process from A to Z and doesn’t leave out the more advanced and complicated processes of data carving, email reconstruction and mobile device analysis.

    For the advanced user, there is plenty of information that is both relevant and useful, some of which you may not have seen before. I appreciated this most because of the specific processes outlined and the tools that were described. I am a big fan of books that can help you apply examples to your own processes, something this book does very well.

    Everything from A to Z, this book provides excellent material focusing on process and step-by-step analysis using the latest tools available.
