Software testing is one of the invisible jobs in the software industry. Everyone has heard of computer programmers but few people realize there are nearly as many people behind the scenes with job titles such as Software Tester, Software Quality Assurance Engineer, Software Test Engineer, and Software Test Technician

Abstract

The first edition of Software Testing was published in November 2000. The Second Edition provides practical insight into the world of software testing and quality assurance. Learn how to find problems in any computer program, how to plan an effective test approach and how to tell when software is ready for release. Updated from the previous edition in 2000 to include a chapter that specifically deals with testing software for security bugs, the processes and techniques used throughout the book are timeless. Although the processes and techniques used in testing computer software are timeless, this title will be brought up-to-date by adding a chapter that specifically deals with testing software for security bugs and revisiting the rest of the book to update examples and references.

This book offers a decent introduction into the field of software testing. Despite it's limited size the book covers a wide range of topics. These include a description of the software development process, the responsibilities of a tester and several kinds of testing. The latter include functional, security, usability and localization testing. Each kind of testing is illustrated by example which can be especially useful for the aspiring tester.

This book is an excellent investment if you want to better understand what your Software Test team does or you want to write better software.
