A unique book that consists entirely of test automation case studies from a variety of domains - from the top names in the field * *Proven advice to empower development organizations to save time by mirroring others' experiences and save money by avoiding others' mistakes. *Insightful case studies from a wide variety of domains, including aerospace, pharmaceuticals, insurance, technology, and telecommunications. *Focuses on the basic issues, rather then technology trends, to give the book a long shelf life. The practice of test automation is becoming more and more popular, but many organizations are not yet experiencing success with it. This book unveils the secrets of how automation has been made to work in reality. The knowledge gained by reading this book can save months or years of effort in automating software testing by helping organizations avoid expensive mistakes and take advantage of proven ideas. By its nature, this book shows the current state of software test automation practice. The authors aim to keep the contributions focused on those things that are more universal (e.g. people issues, return on investment, etc.) and to minimize detailed technical content where this does not impede the process of learning valuable lessons, in order to give the book as long a shelf life as possible. Software practitioners always enjoy reading about what happened to others. For example, at conferences, case study presentations are usually very well attended. The authors/editors have gathered together a collection of experiences from a cross-section of industries and countries, both success stories and failures, in both agile and traditional development. In addition to the case studies, the authors/editors comment on issues raised in these stories, and also include a chapter summarizing good practices and common pitfalls.

World-renowned testing expert Rex Black provides you with the proven methods and concepts that test professionals must know. He presents you with the fundamental techniques for testing and clearly shows you how to select and apply successful strategies to test a system with budget and time constraints. Black begins by discussing the goals and tactics of effective and efficient testing. Next, he lays the foundation of his technique for risk-based testing, explaining how to analyze, prioritize, and document risks to the quality of the system using both informal and formal techniques.

This book is an excellent, helpful and up-to-date resource for all candidates preparing for the ISTQB Foundation Level certification exam based on the new Foundation Level 2018 Syllabus. Although there are plenty of sample questions and information related to the Foundation Level exam on the web, there are two problems with these: Firstly, most of them will soon be outdated, as the old syllabus and exams are going to be retracted in June 2019. Secondly, much of what is available is of poor quality, since many of the sample questions do not follow the strict ISTQB examination rules. This book stands out from other ISTQB-related works through a number of special features: Topicality: The material complies with the latest version of the Foundation Level syllabus published in 2018. Quality and originality: The exam questions are original, not redundant, of high quality, fully aligned with the ISTQB exam requirements and have not been published before. Huge amount of material: It includes 5 full sample exams (200 questions in total) designed in accordance with the ISTQB exam rules, and with the appropriate distribution of questions regarding the learning objectives and K-levels. Well-thought-out sample questions: The questions not only appropriately cover the corresponding learning objectives (LOs), but also to show the typical pitfalls. Diversity: The questions from various sample exams related to the same LO are diversified, that is, each of them points out different aspects of a given LO. This is an excellent method for better and more effective learning and preparing for the exam. Comprehensive, intelligible explanations: All answers are justified and there are detailed and easy-to-understand explanations not only of why a given answer is correct, but also why all the others are wrong. A lot of bonus material: The book includes a great bonus pack: chapters that explain the white-box and black-box test techniques in a detailed way, a set of exercises on test techniques and the detailed solutions to them, and much more.
