Are you a serious software tester? A software tester who wants to know not only how to select and design effective and efficient tests but who also wants to know why those tests work?  A software tester who is ready to take a deep, intensive dive into the topic? A software tester who knows that you can only learn test design by practicing test design, using realistic exercises? If so, this book is for you. Read More…

Elaine Weyuker , University Distinguished Professor; Member, US National Academy of Engineering; ACM Fellow; IEEE Fellow:

This is the testing book I’ve been waiting for. It is nice that the authors understand and include some testing theory, but what sets this book apart in my mind is that it is written by practitioners who also have real pragmatic testing experience and a deep understanding of important issues.

Kari Kakkonen , Testing Trainer and Consultant at Knowit, ISTQB Secretary and co-author of ‘Agile Testing Foundations’:

A must-read for anyone who wants more understanding of test design techniques and especially using them together. Many test design techniques take some practice, before one can use them. This book gives that practice, bringing the dedicated reader to a new skill level. 

Francisca Cano Ortiz , Head of Software Quality Assurance, The Stars Group:

Finally, a book that makes the test design techniques available to everybody regardless of their level of experience. It will support testers wanting to improve the quality of their service or self-study for their ISTQB Advanced Level Certifications.
