Title: Critical Testing Processes: Plan, Prepare, Perform, Perfect
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
The test manager's toolbox just got richer...

Sometimes a book comes along that just has to become part of your virtual profesional toolbox. Mr. Black has just given us poor testers another such book.For me this book provides me with all the tips and tricks that I need during a project and that I would have to think of myself instead of just picking up this book and reading about them.Even better, I now have an excellent source of course materials for our test engineers. Mr. Black explains and justifies every aspect of the testing process just about perfect and his gift for the metaphor makes this book a good evening read.The checklist approach that he employs is a great planning aid. Our projections are much more precise this method.I have added this book to our technical library for this project, and I will insist on making it part of every future test project that I will be part of. That is until Mr. Back publishes his next book.

Poor trees

This book is supposed to be a strategy guide for Final Fantasy IX. I bought it expecting to be told where all the hidden secrets are and a detailed walkthrough of the game. Instead, I get paragraphs telling me, "There's a secret hidden item in this town that very valuable to have. For more information, go to PlayOnline." NO! I DIDN'T PAY $12.00 TO BE TOLD TO FIND OUT ONLINE!! I say we boycott this book and show whoever is responsible that we don't appreciate being tricked. This book should at least tell its customers that if they don't have internet access or don't feel like signing-on every 2 minutes to find out the information you paid to have in print, then this book is USELESS!! A definite bomb!

Quite Good But Some Annoying Faults

I got this as part of a CCNA course so that we can practice at home. For most practice labs used in the Sybex Book by Todd Lammle it is quite adequate. However given the expensive price of this it irks me no end that one of the biggest problems is with the help and the autocompletion with tab on the cisco router. Often you press a command such as log? and it will only show a couple of the options or say ambiguous command. I think this a big failing considering that people using it are learners. You definitely need to use a real router as well

One Word Awesome!!

This book has everything in it and more that most people would want to know about PC Hardware. Your one stop reference. I have the 10th, 12th and now 16th edition. Each edition retains the old as well as adds the latest technologies. It's not something you might read cover to cover one evening but it is a handy reference. If you are a PC Technician or want to be get this book.
