Yes, they usually give you a total at the end of each round or row so you can verify you have the correct number; it's better to discover a mistake at that point, than sometime in the next row or round, and have to rip out two rows or rounds.

I don't know about other people, but I don't use knots in my work; instead I just cut the yarn, then thread it through the loop where my hook was, and pull it tight, then crochet over it in the next row or round (otherwise you could leave it hanging out until the end and use a blunt needle to weave it in).

Hope that helps!
