Summary This review book is designed to help the student learn the material contained in the seventh edition of Fundamentals of criminal investigation. Its purpose is to enable the student to test his/her knowledge of important points, concepts, terms, and rules and commit these to memory. It contains more than 1625 multiple-choice questions and answers, and each question is constructed so that the correct answer, when added to it, will form a statement that can be read and reread. The questions test the student on every aspect of criminal investigation: the preservation and recording of the crime scene, the collection and analysis of evidence, the interviewing and interrogation of witnesses, the identification of suspects, rules of evidence, and the presentation of testimony in court. Special emphasis is placed on the investigation of major crimes. There are 38 chapters in the ₃Review Guide₄ corresponding to the 38 chapters in the textbook. An answer key is included at the end of each chapter. This guide is an excellent companion volume to the bestselling textbook and will be useful to students who are reviewing the important elements of this discipline in other criminal justice texts.
