So I'm trying to do a model and I noticed when in Edit mode the vertices and edges are being hidden by the smoothed surface view:

There are times that the unmodified vertices of a mesh will be inside the surface created by a Subsurf modifier.

Personally, I regularly flip between view subsurf levels while I'm modeling, anyway. (Ctrl0to5 on the keyboard) Then you can edit the model in its unmodified appearance, which is often less confusing than another option, (illustrated)

enter image description here

which is to 'Adjust edit cage to modifier resullt'. this will result in the appearance of sliding points around on the curved, subdivided surface.

I think it is the "Limit Selection to Visible" button.
