Testing is an essential part of software development. In recent years software testing has become a profession and career path. The Testing Practitioner provides a comprehensive description of the state-of-art in software testing and in addition addresses a number of new challenges and topics for the test practitioner. The seven sections in this book are arranged to follow the ISEB Practitioner Syllabus in Software Testing, covering materials found essential for test engineers and test managers working in real-world businesses. Following the syllabus this book deals with test principles, test process, test management, risk management, inspections and reviews, test techniques (both functional and non-functional), incident management, test process improvement, tools and people issues. Some of the specific topics included are test planning, risk based testing, completion criteria, estimation, static analysis, exploratory testing, performance testing, usability testing and data driven testing. This book is intended to meet the practical needs of both test engineers and test managers, especially those preparing for the ISEB Practitioner Exam (Information Systems Examination Board).

A great reference for the new and experienced test practitioner applying test principles and structured testing to software development. This book may not contain all the answers you need, but it will surely set you off in the right direction. This book is a collection of works gathered from 24 authors with a wealth of experience in software testing. The compilation has been edited by Erik van Veenendall, managing director and senior consultant of Improve Quality Services BV and lecturer at Eindhoven University of Technology. He has over 15 years experience in structured testing and is the author of a number of software quality and testing books, a regular speaker at conferences and a leading trainer in the field of software testing.
