5.0 out of 5 stars Practical advice for the DIY usability tester, 23 Sep 2011
C. Jarrett "forms and usability expert" (Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Usability Testing Essentials: Ready, Set...Test (Paperback)
Heard about usability testing and want to try it yourself?

This book will take you step-by-step through all the key considerations, from thinking about why you want to test through the details of planning, running, and reporting what you find.

The author is a much-loved professor who understands what it is to teach, and to learn. She complements that with practical experience, running a real usability tests for real commercial clients with business problems to solve. So although you'll find plenty of references and academic justification of her approach, this is definitely not an 'ivory tower' that recommends things that are impractical: it's a book that reflects what practitioners do everday, and what you can accomplish yourself if you are prepared to be orderly and thoughtful.

In these days of the world-wide web, we also need to think about how our web sites and products will be used by international audiences - a topic you don't find covered in other books on usability testing, but which is a key consideration throughout this one.
