This is a great book for those who are preparing for the Certified Tester Foundation Level (CTFL) by ASTQB. The book covers all the topics of the CTFL Syllabus in a simple language. Highly recommend this book. I just took one month to prepare for the CTFL using this book, took the only mock exam at the end of the book, and scored a 90% in the CTFL Exam.

Oh, to be a Software Tester
18 November 2019 - Echuca

Yeah, this is a text book, and it is probably a pretty important textbook if you are wanting to pass the ISTQB exam so as to become a certified software tester. Honestly, after having to sit through a semester of this course where I would read each of the chapters twice and then only scrap through on the multiple choice tests that occurred every fortnight, it is something that I really want to put behind me, for good.

Yeah, the ISTQB (the Inte

I read this for a university master's course on software testing. It gives a decent overview of topics related to software testing such as integration of testing into software development cycles, test techniques (black box, white box), risk analysis and usage of software test tools.

The chapter questions and mock exam seem to be helpful in checking your own understanding of the contents. I did find some of the wording a little unclear at times which is why I deduct a star.

The focus on the ISTQB g

The material is so dry and formal, that is practically close to useless. Unless you got for ISTQB test, don't even consider. ...more

Possibly useful if you absolutely need to pass the ISTQB exam, though I suspect you'd do just as well by skimming the glossary and googling the terms that aren't immediately obvious.
For learning about testing, I can't recommend this book to anyone.

I read the 2018 edition. It does what it sets to, but feels very dry and terse as a book. Still, worth a skim if you're curious about testing or want to get certified. ...more

In almost covers the every single side of how a Software can be tested. The good thing is that is is written against the ISTQB guidelines so one can attempt certification after having a grasp on it

The book is quite hard to grasp, a lot of new terminology with tons of explanations, which are either ambiguous or not understandable at least for beginner level in test and test management. I miss better explanations with exact examples.

will come handy as a reference for the foundation level exam but more experienced QA professionals probably know a lot of this book's material just from everyday exposure to QA tasks ...more
