Ordered this kit and a top for my daughter's Christmas. It looks great but was disapointed to be charged customs duty on delivery. The man at the post office said I was just unlucky as they don't always make this charge, he also said that I might be able to claim it back but I haven't tried this yet. Other UK customers beware.

This product ROCKS! I've been a big fan of CSI for ages, and looked foreward to solving the case - there's a lot to read, which I enjoyed - it really makes you think it all through before you proceed to the forensic tests that are included. My personal highlight! If you are as much into forensic science as I am (or just into it in a normal and healthy way;)), do yourself a favor and try this kit out. You wont regret it!...

I purchased this kit to supplement my studies - practical vs theory! I learnt quite alot from this structured package. I would definately recommend this to students who may be doing on-line courses as the practical side of evidence collection is vital. I am now purchasing the larger version (without case study) and will create my own case studies with which to test my knowledge! Thank you crimescene.com!...
I ordered the kit as a gift for my friend. She loved this unique present and is excited about getting started. I just wanted to say that the service from I received from Crime Scene was amazing!!!! There was an issue with the order (Not Crime Scene's fault) and Tom was so good about getting back to me and rectifying the problem even when it was out of his control. I just wanted to say "Thank You"....
I live over in England and I expected it to take quite awhile to get here, but it only took 1 week exactly, just as Tom said. People were right about the packaging, you dont want to mess it up. I opened it up straight away as soon as i got it. The quality of the it was great. Thanks to everyone @ CS for this great product!!!...
I bought the single-use kit to use with my 30 student classroom. I just couldn't afford the classroom version. Luckily, it was easy to extend the single use kit to give all 30 students hands-on activity. For starters, we copied the CDs to use in the computer lab. Tom and crimescene give you permission to do that! We then copied the printed materials so everyone had a handbook. Instead of using the single item of fingerprint evidence that crimescene sent (a fingerprint on glass), I created 30 of my own items of print evidence and altered the handout ( I had to replace the comparision print with my own so they'd match.) We just shared the brush and powder. I could have ordered more hemestix for blood tests, but opted to just do one as a whole class demonstration. For $60 I got an awful lot of use out of this kit and will reuse again. A NOTE FROM CRIMSCENE: We condone copying the disks and handouts for classroom use. We are also constantly impressed by the resourcefulness of teachers....
This detective kit should help with the forensic sceince unit I'm planning. It just arrived and so far I'm impressed. There are hours of data on CD. I was up till 2 AM last night reading! I tested fabric samples for blood with the heme Sticks today and it was fun, just like on TV. The test will provide some instant gratification for the students. I still don't know whodunit yet. I'll wait to open the solution envelope until I'm good and ready. :) ...
For years teachers have asked us to make something they could use with their stidents in the classroom. The Crime Scene game is the answer to those requests. It's easy to take this single boxed game and adapt to any size group. Let me know what you think. Tom Arriola Crime Scene...
