Reviews & Endorsements:
"Software Quality Assurance: A Self-Teaching Introduction" reviews software quality assurance testing best practices in a manner that lends especially well to self-study, a refresher course, or supplemental textbook reading for a college-level IT course. It reviews all kinds of testing and test management, from automation processes to video games and lab experiments, complimenting theory with real-world applications and exercises for self-testing; but perhaps its greatest strength lies in its ability to pair the fundamentals of the latest computer science findings with an introduction designed to pair case studies of different systems with the fundamental concepts of general quality assurance practices.
