More information on permission sets

Hi All,

I am learning salesforce from a month time now, i am  not so clear with permission sets.
As i had gone through some documents on web i got the information that permission sets  are used  giving some additional permission like acess to fields rather than changing profiles all the time.

My first question is, are the permission sets only used for granting acess to fields that profiles restrict them not to ? is this the only use? are they any more useful cases where we can use the permission sets?

On the other side, i tried to grant "edit " functionality on a custom object in recruting application using permissin sets to a profle where it has only read and creat . however the granted permission was not working as the profile  restricted  them to read and create. so this leaves me to conclude that profile settings cannot be superced by permision sets . Am i correct here ?

Please let me if i in right direction.


Thanks for your inputs.
Regards,
Raj
