ANSWER #1 of 8

Firstly I have to point out you asked about being a crime scene investigator invesitgator. The first thing you have to realise is that it is NOTHING like on tv. Its not glamourous, it can be pretty messy, and you do not walk around with those stupid little torches they all seem to carry. And it depends what area you want to get into. They pretty much all involve science, but some aspects involve more biochemistry (like lab work, testing DNA etc), some more physics (eg ballistics) and others more inorganic chemistry (testing paint, etc). You need to be observant, organised, and you need to be able to detatche yourself from nasty situations.
