CAIRO BOOKS's Description
A hands-on guide to testing techniques that deliver reliable software and
Testing even a simple system can quickly turn into a potentially infinite
task. Faced with tight costs and schedules, testers need to have a toolkit of
practical techniques combined with hands-on experience and the right strategies
in order to complete a successful project. World-renowned testing expert Rex
Black provides you with the proven methods and concepts that test professionals
must know. He presents you with the fundamental techniques for testing and
clearly shows you how to select and apply successful strategies to test a
system with budget and time constraints.
Black begins by discussing the goals and tactics of effective and efficient
testing. Next, he lays the foundation of his technique for risk-based testing,
explaining how to analyze, prioritize, and document risks to the quality of the
system using both informal and formal techniques. He then clearly describes how
to design, develop, and, ultimately, document various kinds of tests. Because
this is a hands-on activity, Black includes realistic, life-sized exercises
that illustrate all of the major test techniques with detailed solutions.
By the end of this book, you'll know more about the nuts and bolts of testing
than most testers learn in an entire career, and you'll be ready to put those
ideas into action on your next test project.
With the help of real-world examples integrated throughout the chapters,
you'll discover how to:
* Analyze the risks to system quality
* Allocate your testing effort appropriately based on the level of risk
* Choose the right testing strategies every time
* Design tests based on a system's expected behavior (black box) or internal
structure (white box)
* Plan and perform integration testing
* Explore and attack the system
* Focus your hard work to serve the needs of the project
