Software testing - win a book

Software Testing: An ISTQB-BCS Certified Tester Foundation guide (3rd edition)The kind of expectation you get from buying a new car seems not to apply to new software installations.

In Chapter one of Software Testing, Peter Morgan explains...

‘If you were buying a new car, you would not expect to take delivery from the showroom with a scratch down the side of the vehicle. The car should have five wheels, a steering wheel, an engine and all the other essential components, and it should come with appropriate documentation, with all pre-sales checks completed and passed satisfactorily. The car you receive should be the car described in the sales literature; it should have the correct engine size, the correct colour scheme, and whatever extras you have ordered, and performance in areas such as fuel consumption and maximum speed should match published figures. In short, a level of expectation is set by brochures, by your experience of sitting in the driving seat, and probably by a test drive. If your expectations are not met you will feel justifiably aggrieved.’

This book explores the fundamentals of the important but neglected discipline of software testing to provide a basis on which a practical and cost-effective software testing regime can be constructed. It is also the only official textbook of the ISTQB-BCS Certified Tester Foundation Level.
