This text provides comprehensive coverage of the necessary skills, including aspects of chemistry, biology and physics, as well as relevant aspects of law.
Who is this book for?
Practical Skills in Forensic Science is an indispensable book for undergraduate students taking forensic science degree programmes and for those following related courses such as forensic chemistry. It will also be highly useful to students taking modules in forensic analysis or crime scene investigation as part of a broader programme, or a joint degree course. It represents a valuable resource for postgraduate students working in this area, and lecturers should find it an effective way to supplement information given in practical sessions.
