Semiclassical theories of electron and spin transport in metallic magnetic structures are reviewed. The role of disorder and electronic band structures in the current perpendicular to the interface plane (CPP) configuration are analyzed. It is shown that the transport properties of the CPP multilayers is semi-quantitative for the parallel aligned and the as grown 'virgin' samples, in which to a good approximation neighboring magnetization vectors are antiparallel.
