Software Testing : Principles and Practices 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.269

Software Testing: Principles and Practices is a complete guide on this area of Computer Science, and it covers both the theoretical and practical aspects of testing, as well as new developments in the field. 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.

Salient Features

  • Focuses on geographically distributed teams.Software Testing addresses people, orgizational structures and models for global teams.
  • Showcases India's rich experience in testing. An increase amount of product testing is being done in India. However, not many books examine this experience or the India Business Model. This book showcases the best of these practices.
  • Emphasizes pratical experience while retaining comprehensive theoretical rigor. This book addresses pratical aspects of testing like internationalization and regression testing while preserving traditional approaches like equivalence pratitioning and cyclomatic complexity.

I am an experienced Testing professional and this book is extremely helpful

I have been working as Software test engineer for more than 4 years and needed a refresher on testing principles. This book should be read by all testers, fresher or professional as it covers a wide array of topics including many methods of testing and even little bit about automation testing.

There are very few examples and the topics covered are described in a concise manner. It is useful in covering topics quickly or preparing for an interview and I think this was the intention of the authors.

Very good - 5 stars

best book for professional as well as new joiness

I was looking for a book where in I can refresh basics of testing though we do have material available for free on internet but I love reading books gives a feeling of serious studies.
This is a very good book for freshers as well as professional.
For me it is really a book to be kept for longer time as I can relate my 10 years of testing experience with topics covered in this book.

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.

An average book : only on Theory.

I was expecting some practicals on each testing process but the book is only focused on theory only.
I expect it should not be done in next edition. Expecting much practical & less theory.
