The only study guide for the EnCase Certified Exam - and it is great Sept. 6 2012
By Jerry Saperstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are only a few tens of thousands of people vitally concerned with EnCase - and most of us got quite a shock when Guidance Software, its publisher, released EnCase Forensic v7, a radical departure from previous versions.

That this book was released almost a year past its original announced publication date is evidence of this.

And evidence gathering and analysis is what EnCase is all about. It is the leading digital evidence acquisition and analysis tool. (It's actually a suite of tools that are transparently welded together.)

This is the third edition of this study guide. Guidance Software was once notorious for poor documentation. While that reputation has slowly been shed as Guidance has moved toward creating better documentation, the manual remained sparse with little explanation of the many tools available.

Steve Bunting filled that void with his first edition. While intended to help people prepare for the EnCase Certification exam, Bunting provides a self-teaching course in both using EnCase and a substantial explanation of the technology EnCase is used to explore. This quality makes it a much more useful tool than the EnCase manual itself for those willing to devote the time to thorough reading.

This time out, Bunting had his hands full with EnCase v7. The EnCase users forums have been filled with complaints, many of them justified, while many were clearly from people too busy to read the (adjective deleted) manual.

The book itself is what I have come to expect from Bunting. It is modular, broken down into small sections arranged in a logical, sequential manner. It is thorough, including short - and very necessary - sections on configuring computers for the vastly greater demands of v7. It is good, welcome and very useful information.

A couple of chapters are given to concise, but reasonable thorough, explanations of File System basics and proper acquisition procedures. The next or so pages are given to using EnCase. Every page is packed with specific detail. No padding here.

This is a teaching text, a study guide. No doubts about it. There are review questions at the end of each chapter. Even if you're not planning on taking the certification exam, the reviews are very helpful as a way to measure your comprehension. There is no cD with this edition. Instead the supplementary materials are available online.

Overall, Steve Bunting retains his reputation in my eyes as the author of the best EnCase study guide in print, even if it is the only one. If you use EnCase forensic and own or plan to upgrade to v7, you need this book.

EnCase book nice, but not in electronic format Sept. 8 2012
By Aaron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am very impressed with the new edition of the EnCase Certified Examiner study guide, but am a little disappointed that this edition is not available electronically and if I want it electronically, I have to purchase it again. This means when I travel I have to carry the book with me instead of having a pdf version on my laptop. The other online content does not seem too bad, other than it took a few hours to download because the site only allowed 5 simultaneous sessions. Overall, this is not a bad purchase, I just wish that it came in an electronic format so I could use it from my laptop.

Highly detailed and informative. Some people have left unfair negative commentary because they failed to read the book. When a slacker claims that there is no CD with book and they need the associated documentation, they failed to read the many links within the book that tells them to go to the publishers website to obtain the related material. Stop being sheeple and do some work, READ for yourself! You are too stupid and lazy to be a real forensic analyst if you don't!

A Must for EnCe May 12 2013
By Jeremiah II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An excellent book for EnCe preparation or just learning the necessary techniques that Guidance hid in order to force EnCase users into their training programs. With well organized subjects, detailed explanations, sample questions, suggested concentration areas and plenty of illustrations, this book was better than the Guidance instructor sent to our group training program. However, The Kindle version for iPad, however, lacks features. Such as, after you've highlighted a few hundred lines, it would be helpful to be able to print out all your highlights as a study guide. Get the book, the tangible version.
