Publisher Comments:

A software tester’s survival guide from a leading expert in the field

Software testing expert Marnie Hutcheson explains both the theory and the practical application of her down-to-earth approach to risk-based testing, the Most Important Tests (MITs) method. The many proven tools, methods, and metrics examined can be used to ensure that you always have reliable, functional software and systems. Software Testing Fundamentals presents a best practice approach that can be applied to almost any project, from the largest systems to the smallest Web sites. Discover how the MITs method can be used to evaluate test needs, get the budget, show the value of testing, and perform a successful test effort.

Rich with examples from real-world development projects that range from traditional to eXtreme, this book shows you:

  • How to pick the most important tests for your test effort, whether it is well-planned or design-as-you-go
  • Ways to use measurement to test software, to communicate the results to others, and to make improvements
  • How to use tools you already have to automate your test effort so you can boost your testing efficiency
  • Tips on how to demonstrate the value added by your test effort
  • Tools and analysis techniques for test estimation, sizing, and planning

The companion Web site contains:

  • Sample templates and worksheets
  • Support materials
  • A discussion group
  • Links to many resources
