Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A superior primer on software testing and quality assurance, from integration to execution and automation

This important new work fills the pressing need for a user-friendly text that aims to provide software engineers, software quality professionals, software developers, and students with the fundamental developments in testing theory and common testing practices.

Software Testing and Quality Assurance: Theory and Practice equips readers with a solid understanding of:

  • Practices that support the production of quality software
  • Software testing techniques
  • Life-cycle models for requirements, defects, test cases, and test results
  • Process models for units, integration, system, and acceptance testing
  • How to build test teams, including recruiting and retaining test engineers

  • Quality Models, Capability Maturity Model, Testing Maturity Model, and Test Process Improvement Model

Expertly balancing theory with practice, and complemented with an abundance of pedagogical tools, including test questions, examples, teaching suggestions, and chapter summaries, this book is a valuable, self-contained tool for professionals and an ideal introductory text for courses in software testing, quality assurance, and software engineering.

Book News Annotation:

Written for software engineers, software quality professionals, developers, and students, this book sets out fundamentals of testing theory and describes common testing practices. Rather than addressing the characteristics of specific software systems, the book presents testing theory and practice as stepping stones that will help students understand and develop testing practices for more complex systems. Learning features include test questions, examples, teaching suggestions, and chapter summaries. The book can be used as a reference for professionals and as an introductory text for undergraduate courses in software testing, quality assurance, and software engineering. Naik teaches in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo, Canada. Tripathy conducts software testing for grid-based storage applications.

Synopsis:

Currently, most textbooks focus on the topics of software testing and quality assurance separately. Now, Software Testing and Quality Assuranceoffers instructors and students in software engineering a single source for the subject. A range of topics is covered, including SQA processes and metrics, program testing, code review, system testing, test execution, and quality metrics and reliability models. It is a valuable text, as well as an excellent professional reference for practitioners of software testing.
