I never give anything 5 stars, however, this book was a clear exception.

If you're going to conduct a usability test, you really need to read this book first. A lot of it is commonsense, yes, but if you read this book you'll save yourself tons of time and money because you'll experience many fewer bumps in the testing road. It's very practical and very easy to read.
Marc
This is a very process-specific book, but it's basic applications go beyond needing to do full-our usability testing. It's a good source for examining your own workplace's workflows and provides ways of identifying bottlenecks and other problems.

If you have time for only one book on user testing, this is the one without a doubt. Very practical and does bot waste any time. Was able to complete my first user testing way easier with the help of this book. Recommend read!

This is hands down the best book on usability testing I've read. To be fair, you will most likely get the most out of this book if you're a novice, as I was. Definitely worth a purchase.
Elizabeth
Figured I should give this a try since it's been sitting on my desk for 3+ months and oh, also, I need to plan a few tests in the near future.

This was assigned reading for a course I was taking - it was an easy read in colloquial language - not a stuffy textbook at all.
