Within the last 18 months more than 40,000 people worldwide have taken the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) Foundations Level exam, 10,000 alone in the last 4 months. So, where can all these people go to learn what they need to know in order to pass the exam? Now they can go to Software Testing Foundations 2nd Edition, from Rocky Nook's new Computing division.

Professional testing of software has become an increasingly important task requiring a profound knowledge of testing techniques. The ISTQB has developed a universally accepted, international, qualification scheme aimed at software and system testing professionals, and has created the syllabi and tests for the "Certified Tester".

With authors who are among the founders of the ISTQB, this improved, updated, newly edited 2nd Edition covers the "Foundations Level" (i.e., entry level), and teaches the most important methods of software testing. It is designed for self-study and provides the necessary knowledge to pass the Certified Tester - Foundations Level exam as defined by the ISTQB. It also covers more recent topics, such as test-first approach and risk-based testing.
