5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect in style and content, 12 Oct 2007
This review is from: Software Testing: An ISEB Foundation (Paperback)
After recently starting a new job as a software tester, I had no formal experience of the theory and principles of testing and bought this book to help me pass the ISEB Foundation Certificate in Software Testing exam. Unlike many text books, I found this book was easy to just sit down and read and the example questions at the end of each section/chapter were spot-on for helping me re-cap on what had been learnt in the previous pages.

My employer put me through an intesive 3-day course for the cerficate in which the knowledge I had already learnt was cemented in my head! After each day at home I used the book as a revision guide, topping up knowledge in those areas I wasn't too confident on. I passed the exam with a Distinction (88%) and would recommend this book to anyone thinking of, or currently working towards this qualification.

I agree this book is ace. I also studied ISEB Foundation and gained a Jr Software Testing rule. Most of the work I owe to this book. It's a must read. I also downloaded the passpapers from www.iseb-software-testing.co.uk which made things easier too.
