Practical Software Testing Summary

Practical Software Testing: A Process-Oriented Approach by Ilene Burnstein

Based on the needs of the educational community, and the software professional, this book takes a unique approach to teaching software testing. It introduces testing concepts that are managerial, technical, and process oriented, using the Testing Maturity Model (TMM) as a guiding framework. The TMM levels and goals support a structured presentation of fundamental and advanced test-related concepts to the reader. In this context, the interrelationships between theoretical, technical, and managerial concepts become more apparent. In addition, relationships between the testing process, maturity goals, and such key players as managers, testers and client groups are introduced. Topics and features:
- Process/engineering-oriented text
- Promotes the growth and value of software testing as a profession
- Introduces both technical and managerial aspects of testing in a clear and precise style
- Uses the TMM framework to introduce testing concepts in a systemmatic, evolutionary way to faciliate understanding
- Describes the role of testing tools and measurements, and how to integrate them into the testing process Graduate students and industry professionals will benefit from the book, which is designed for a graduate course in software testing, software quality assurance, or software validation and verification

Moreover, the number of universities with graduate courses that cover this material will grow, given the evoluation in software development as an engineering discipline and the creation of degree programs in software engineering.
