The contents of the book cover the principles of testing, life cycle models for software development, test management metrics and automation, and the different types of testing. The book covers popular testing methods like Performance Testing, System and Acceptance Testing, White Box, Black Box, and Ad Hoc Testing. Apart from this, it also provides in-depth knowledge on specialized testing methods such as Object-Oriented Systems and Usability Testing and Accessibility Testing. A key feature of this book is that it recognises common issues faced by companies in terms of people management, geographically dispersed teams, and varying company business models, and addresses these problems in a unit titled People and Organisational Issues in Testing.

Best Book For Begineers

This is the best book for those who want to learn software testing with real life examples. The language is simply and most important thing is it includes the pictures, charts and other key points which are helpful for learning and understanding the concept easily. There is only one small thing missing in this book. Answers of the reviews questions are not there. Please give a cd or internet website access to student for verifying those answers.
