About How Can I Test This?:

This book puts examples at the forefront.

Instead of test theory being front and centre, with maybe an example or two if you’re lucky, this book makes examples the focus.

We'll share the examples that need to be tested, test heuristics to apply, any assumptions, how we would limit scope, test ideas and tools we would utilise.

About Starting Your Software Testing Career: 

In this book, I will share the different paths you can take towards becoming a software tester, useful ways you can up-skill along with what I wish I knew in my first year of testing.

After reading this book you'll also be able to:

  • Understand the difference between Test Cases, Exploratory Testing and Ad Hoc Testing and when one approach is more suitable than the other
  • Write an effective bug report
  • Understand the benefits of learning test automation along with when you should and shouldn't write test automation
  • Test against implicit requirements

If you have ever wondered, what do you mean by that? This is the book for you.

We’ll share:

  • The scenarios/features/sites that need to be tested (the example)
  • Which test heuristics we would apply, why and how
  • Any assumptions we would make (which of course should be communicated)
  • How we would limit scope and why
  • Tools we would utilise (with links to read up on those tools)

It’s like we are right there with you!
