Notes provide extra information and references to related information.
Tips are insights that help you perform tasks more easily and effectively.
Warnings let you know about things you should do-or shouldn't do-as you perform computer investigations.
You'll find Review Questions at the end of each chapter to test your knowledge of the material covered. The answers to the Review Questions can be found in Appendix A. You'll also find a list of Terms to Know at the end of each chapter that will help you review the key terms introduced in the chapter. These terms are compiled in the Glossary at the end of the book.
You'll also find special sidebars in each chapter titled 'Tales from the Trenches,' written by Neil Broom.
