There are many resources about user testing available on the internet but nothing can beat this guide. I bought it when I was a fresh graduate in Industrial design. It still helps me when I need to organise User testing sessions.

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.
