Description: “….the dream team for this topic. If I could have my choice for any 4 authors worldwide on this topic, I’d go with these.” Ross Collard,

“…there is no-one better placed to ensure that the book is perfectly aligned with the ISTQB” Stuart Reid, founding chair of the ISTQB

"This is a very well-written and readable book on software testing. The authors have done an exceptional job of providing a valuable resource for people seeking the Foundation Level ISTQB certification. The book follows the most recent ISTQB Foundation Level syllabus and provides sample exam questions, along with exercises to reinforce the information provided in the book. Although anyone wanting to learn more about software testing will profit from this book, this is a ’must read’ book for anyone preparing for the Foundation Level ISTQB Certification exam!" - Randy Rice, co-author of Surviving the Top Ten Challenges of Software Testing

"As I would expect with the authors involved, the book was an easy read and included all the pertinent information necessary to prepare for the ISTQB foundations exam. I think that anyone that is considering taking the exam should obtain this book and study it thoroughly. Even engineers that have no interest in taking the exam, would benefit in using this book as one of their prinicpal references on software testing." - Rick Craig, consultant for Software Quality Engineering.
