"The Software Test Engineer's Handbook"
Many books cover functional testing techniques, but relatively few also
cover technical testing. The Software Test Engineer's Handbook—2nd
Edition fills that gap. Authors Graham Bath and Judy McKay are core
members of the ISTQB Working Party that created the new Advanced Level
Syllabus—Test Analyst and Advanced Level Syllabus—Technical Test
Analyst. These syllabi were released in 2012.
This book presents
functional and technical aspects of testing as a coherent whole, which
benefits test analyst/engineers and test managers. It provides a solid
preparation base for passing the exams for Advanced Test Analyst and
Advanced Technical Test Analyst, with enough real-world examples to keep
you intellectually invested.
This book includes information
that will help you become a highly skilled Advanced Test Analyst and
Advanced Technical Test Analyst. You will be able to apply this
information in the real world of tight schedules, restricted resources,
and projects that do not proceed as planned.
