Decades of software testing experience condensed into the most important lessons learned.

The world's leading software testing experts lend you their wisdom and years of experience to help you avoid the most common mistakes in testing software. Each lesson is an assertion related to software testing, followed by an explanation or example that shows you the how, when, and why of the testing lesson. More than just tips, tricks, and pitfalls to avoid, Lessons Learned in Software Testing speeds you through the critical testing phase of the software development project without the extensive trial and error it normally takes to do so. The ultimate resource for software testers and developers at every level of expertise, this guidebook features:
Over 200 lessons gleaned from over 30 years of combined testing experience
Tips, tricks, and common pitfalls to avoid by simply reading the book rather than finding out the hard way
Lessons for all key topic areas, including test design, test management, testing strategies, and bug reporting
Explanations and examples of each testing trouble spot help illustrate each lesson's assertion
