Summary and Info
I use this text as the required text for a course I teach on Computer Forensics. Overall, it is an excellent introductory text. Students say that it is easy to read, which is exactly what I want in a textbook. However, I do not use it exclusively for lecture material. I pull my lecture material from a variety of texts, such as Real Digital Forensics, Incident Response (2nd edition), File System Forensic Analysis, and the other Hacking Exposed Textbooks.
The second edition is a welcome improvement. I really like the new section (Part V) where it discusses the practical cases, and what type of forensic techniques that you would use for each type of case.
I create all of my own lectures and labs for the classroom. I assign this text to students to fill in the gaps of the lectures.
