often asked for some of my favorite testing books. Here they
are. I list these at the risk of offending some of my friends who have
written other books. These are not the only books I like, just the ones
at the top of my list.
Practitioner's Guide to Software Test Design by Lee Copeland
I like this
book because Lee does a great job in explaining many of the classic
test design techniques, as well as the newer ones. It's an enjoyable
Testing, 2nd Ed. by Ron Patton
This is a great book for new testers, although
any tester will find it very helpful.
Computer Software, 2nd Ed. by Kaner, Falk and Nguyen
This is the bestselling testing book of all
time. It has a lot of great ways to test software.
Methods for Software Testing, 3rd Ed. by William Perry
Some people love it, others don't. I like this
book because it has many templates and examples. It's not the type of
book you read from front to back, but is a great reference book for
the Top Ten Challenges of Software Testing by William Perry and Randall
Yeah, I had to put my own book on the list.
Over the years people have told me about how much it has helped them,
so I put it on the list.
Test Automation by Graham and Fewster
This is my
favorite book on test automation. Lots of good information here.
