Software Testing Foundations, Third Edition--New from Rocky Nook
A Study Guide for the Certified Tester Exam
Santa Barbara, CA, January 13, 2011--Professional testing of software is an essential task that
requires a profound knowledge of testing techniques.
The International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) has developed a universally
accepted, international qualification scheme aimed at software and system testing professionals,
and has created the syllabi and tests for the "Certified Tester." To date, more than 150,000 people
have taken the ISTQB tests.
With authors who are among the founders of the Certified Tester Syllabus, this thoroughly revised
and updated 3rd Edition of "Software Testing Foundations" (Rocky Nook, $44.95 USD) covers the
"Foundation Level" (i.e., entry level) and teaches the most important methods of software testing.
It is designed for self-study and provides the knowledge necessary to pass the Certified Tester
Foundation Level exam as defined by the ISTQB 2010 syllabus. Also in this new edition, technical
terms have been precisely stated according to the revised and updated ISTQB glossary.
Topics covered include:
- Fundamentals of Testing
- Testing and the Software Lifecycle
- Static and Dynamic Testing Techniques
- Test Management
- Test Tools
This book also covers more recent topics, such as test-first approach and risk-based testing.
