Testing helps assess and improve the quality of software, and testers use many different ways to find more defects with the least possible effort. Exploratory Testing (ET) is a manual testing approach – or attitude as some proponents of ET would say – that was first presented by Cem Kaner in 1983.

  • Great book, tons of practicals, step-by-step instructions, full listing of resources and reading lists...Plus, I love how the authors start fairly basic initially, and then slowly build onto the previously covered topics with more and more depth per subsequent chapter. all-in-all an excellent find!

    One note though, pick your vendor wisely. I bought this used in "good" condition with "some notes and highlighting." Well..I haven't really noticed much highlighting because I've been so preoccupied with keeping the pages together! My book came completely un-bound for the first 60-70 pages, which subsequently led to the remainder of the book coming apart too. No matter how carefully (read-Uncomfortably and Awkwardly) I used it. UNACCEPTABLE

    What's even more irksome, is that this is more so a textbook--something I would like to be able to refer to every now and then..
    Guess I'll just have to buy another NEW copy now..
    My advice--be careful about buyng USED books online. And just steer clear entirely when the books you'll be byung are reference/text-books.

  • When I first read this book over eight years ago I was less than enthusiastic. At the time I felt that the approach was not rigorous enough. Over time I came to appreciate the pragmatism and how the approach in this book reflects the realities of software testing instead of a rigid, purist view as an unattainable ideal.
    Everything the new or intermediate test professional needs to know is covered. The practices and techniques provided will foster sound QA practices and will step you through developing test strategies, and from those, developing and executing test cases. These are the real essence of testing, and this book covers them exceptionally well.
    I like the coverage of testing systems and artifacts that are not software - documentation, hardware, and localization testing advice shows that testing is not limited to software. As importantly, the chapter on legal consequences of software defects will show testing in a perspective that is often overlooked, even by seasoned test professionals.
    If you are new to software testing, or have some experience, but no formal training, this book will provide you with the right way to approach software testing, and will give insights that would take years to learn on your own.

  • A friend recently suggested I get into Software testing and honestly I never thought about it as a career choice. She suggested this and one other book as informative sources to get me started. Finding books on the subject alone was hard enough!

    I haven't finished the book yet, but here's what I like

    - Information is simply written and easy to understand so far. Not all text books do that and I appreciate when it is.

    - This book isn't just geared to the subject matter experts or even people new to the subject. The preface addresses this and offers suggestions

    - Each chapter starts by the writers telling you why that section is necessary, a brief summary and sometimes even outside references to follow up with.

    The only bad thing I can say so far about this book is that there doesn't seem to be any updated versions. While I'm assuming that methodology doesn't really change, the book is already ten years old. I'm hoping that my opinions don't change as I get more in-depth, but if they do I'll come back and update this review.

  • I am a CCNA, CCDA, MCSE, MCP, Network+, etc. certified person who iscurrently persuing a career in Exploratory Testing testing printers atHP.
    This book was recommended to me by my test lead from Satisfice
    It presents very useful information in a refreshing style thatallows you to apply it to your testing immediatly.
    Anyone who wantsto improve their thinking process should purchase this book, no matterhow little or how much experience you have this book is worth having:)
    I look forward to reading other books by Cem and crew.

  • EXCELLENT resource on computer testing. This is written in such an easy and straightforward manner. The book is written for anyone - regardless of any previous programming experience. It's great. This book is a main resource recommended to new hires at the company that I work.

  • May be good for other, not exactly what I was looking for.

  • In a non-tech company but working on a quasi-tech team, found myself in need of setting up QA and test protocols. A friend recommended this book. What a lifesaver! :)

  • The beginning does a great job of justifying the author's way of thinking. It makes a lot of valid points, and it is easy to understand for someone who is just getting started.
