Aimed at the working test manager or test engineer, the second edition of William Perry's Effective Methods for Software Testing is one of the most rigorous guides to software testing available. This book provides the latest in standards for measuring how good your organization's commitment to software testing is and many ways to improve it. In all, with its numerous lists and practical step-by-step guide to testing, this book points the way toward more economical and effective software testing.

This book's major strength is its meticulous 11-step guide to all aspects of today's software testing process--from initial analysis and test planning to testing software installation and looking at ways to improve the testing cycle the next time around. The book is filled with to-do lists that enumerate the resources and tasks required for each step with helpful hints for what to do, how to work with management, and how to staff and execute a test plan from start to finish. (There is a chapter devoted to each of the 11 steps.) The text also incorporates the latest in testing standards from the Quality Assurance Institute (QAI), and the author does a good job of integrating testing with today's iterative software methodologies. Another standout here is a look at software tools and how they can simplify the testing process.

Of course, few software shops will be as rigorous in real life with the testing process outlined in this book, but there's little doubt that this exhaustive guide sets a high standard that test engineers can aim for. Written in a somewhat formal--yet clear--style, this book can certainly benefit any software testing engineer or manager. --Richard Dragan
