Abstract Studies are presented of the selection of events consistent with top quark pair production in data recorded by the CMS detector at the LHC, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 0.84+/-0.09 1/pb and at center-of-mass energy sqrt{s}=7 TeV. Results are presented for the lepton+jets as well as dilepton channels. Event yields in data are compared to those in simulation, and several background processes are estimated using data-driven techniques. The observed yields of top-antitop candidate events are roughly consistent with the Standard Model.
