Reverse Engineering : it's not all its cracked up to be

A lot of people are still bewildered by Reverse Engineering. A lot of people are still wondering what it is and how on earth they can learn to do it. This post---hopefully---will break the mysticism around Reverse Engineering.
 before I can get into it I need to answer this question:
What is Reverse Engineering?Reverse engineering is the process of discovering the technological principles of a device, object, or system through analysis of its structure, function, and operation.[1] It often involves taking something (e.g., a mechanical device, electronic component, software program, or biological, chemical, or organic matter) apart and analyzing its workings in detail to be used in maintenance, or to try to make a new device or program that does the same thing without using or simply duplicating (without understanding) the original. ---- Wikipedia   What I'm going to talk about in this post is Reverse Engineering software.
