StickyMinds.com Review: by Martin FensomeBack to Top

The title of this volume is definitely apt. This book's focus is on the major areas and challenges one faces when finding the defects that matter most to the company and especially to the users of the software.

The authors begin with a review of the issues surrounding testing and testers. Then the focus shifts into discussions on the software and its environments, as well as how this exponentially increases the number of variables to be considered when planning and executing tests. After discussing the differences between development and testing and how to build good relationships with our "coding cousins," the book presents ideas and suggestions for test preparation. Some very specific ideas are given on how to learn the utmost about the software and how teams of testers can work together to deal more effectively and speedily with the complexities presented by software and environments of the 21st Century.

The early parts just whet your appetite for more, and the book delivers. Later sections cover such topics as test planning, recoverability testing, test preparation, automation, data corruption testing, tools, test execution, test management, and beta tests. The authors' knowledge of testing is extensive, albeit from a mainframe environment, which shows clearly in the examples they detail.

The book has something for almost everyone. Testers, test managers, and leads--as well as developers--can gain from reading this book. The writing style is very down to earth, never preachy or repetitive. I feel that the content is well covered. Though at over three hundred pages, it's not a "quick read," it is a rewarding and worthwhile one. Unlike some books on testing that focus more on process, this book really targets the testers in the trenches.

Reading the table of contents, you may be tempted to think this book is filled with rehashed information. It's not. Having read many articles and books on testing, I believe this is one of the best.

"Software Testing Techniques" could very well be the modern day companion to Kaner, Falk, and Ngyuen's "Testing Computer Software." The Kaner classic shows its age, but still focuses on the basic nuts and bolts of finding and reporting issues. The author discusses some of the modern complexities and how to overcome them through planning, organization, logic, and hardware/software. I highly recommend "Software Testing Techniques" to anyone interested in finding the defects that matter when testing software.

This book is a very comprehensive guide to software testing on the mainframe. It would be beneficial for both experienced testers and those new to the testing profession. The authors have done a great job of describing the tasks facing software testers, and the unique (and important) role that the test process plays in delivering world-class software. The book is very readable--it covers a lot of important information in a straightforward manner. You can't test quality into a software product, and you can never find EVERY bug. This book helps place the focus on what's really important--finding the defects that matter!
