Think of them as "anti-patterns" mistakes that make testing far less effective and efficient than it ought to be. In "Common System and Software Testing Pitfalls, " Donald G. Firesmith catalogs 92 of these pitfalls. Drawing on his 35 years of software and system engineering experience, Firesmith shows testers and technical managers and other stakeholders how to avoid falling into these pitfalls, recognize when they have already fallen in, and escape while minimizing their negative consequences. Firesmith writes for testing professionals and other stakeholders involved in large or medium-sized projects. His anti-patterns and solutions address both "pure software" applications and "software-reliant systems," encompassing heterogeneous subsystems, hardware, software, data, facilities, material, and personnel. For each pitfall, he identifies its applicability, characteristic symptoms, potential negative consequences and causes, and offers specific actionable recommendations for avoiding it or limiting its consequences. This guide will help youPinpoint testing processes that need improvement-before, during, and after the projectImprove shared understanding and collaboration among all project participantsDevelop, review, and optimize future project testing programsMake your test documentation far more usefulIdentify testing risks and appropriate risk-mitigation strategiesCategorize testing problems for metrics collection, analysis, and reportingTrain new testers, QA specialists, and other project stakeholders With 92 common testing pitfalls organized into 14 categories, this taxonomy of testing pitfalls should be relatively complete. However, in spite of its comprehensiveness, it is also quite likely that additional pitfalls and even missing categories of pitfalls will be identified over time as testers read this book and compare it to their personal experiences. As an enhancement to the print edition, the author has provided the following location on the web where readers can find major additions and modifications to this taxonomy of pitfalls: http: //donald.firesmith.net/home/common-test... Please send any recommended changes and additions to dgf (at) sei (dot) cmu (dot) edu, and the author will consider them for publication both on the website and in future editions of this book.
