Harold Trimm, Ph.D. - All books by this author

Easy Way Series - All books in this series

The science of forensics and the crime investigation lab have become an increasingly important aspect of police work. This brand-new Easy Way title introduces criminology students and law enforcement candidates to forensics in four major sections: Introduction to Forensic Science, The Physical Sciences, Physical Evidence, and The Future of Forensic Science. Among the topics explored are applications of the sciences of physics and chemistry to forensics, physical evidence, body fluids, explosives and incendiaries, firearms, fingerprints, DNA evidence, and many more. Discussion of future trends includes retinal scans and other ID systems, computer databases and searches, and more. Review questions with answers appear at the end of each chapter. Barron’s Easy Way books focus on both practical and academic topics, presenting fundamental subject matter in clear, understandable language. Equally popular as self-teaching manuals and supplementary texts for classroom use, they are written to help students improve their grades and review subject matter before tests. They are also useful for introducing general readers to a new career-related skill. Easy Way titles cover virtually all subjects that are taught on advanced high school and college-101 levels. New subjects are periodically added, and existing titles are frequently updated to keep them timely and relevant to students’ needs. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color.
