    Are you a test analyst? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Rex Black has done an outstanding job of writing the second volume of a book with a focus on the material and learning objectives for the advanced test analyst.

    Black, begins with an overview of contextual and background material that influences some of the basic aspects of software testing. Next, the author discusses the process of testing and the activities that occur within that process. Then, he discusses test management activities from the start to the end of the text process and introduces the considerations of risk for testing. He continues by focusing on test analysts and technical test analysts. Next, the author discusses the tests of software characteristics based on the taxonomy of quality characteristics described in the ISO 9126 standard. Then, he introduces you to reviews and covers strategies for effective and successful reviews. The author continues by using the IEEE 1044 standard to focus on incident lifecycles and the information testers should gather for incident reports. Next, he focuses on introducing a number of international, national, and domain-specific standards. He continues by providing a solid conceptual background for test tools and automation. Next, the author discusses the skills of the individual tester; as well as, the internal and external test team dynamics. Finally, the author shows you what you need to know in order to prepare for the ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst exam.

    This most excellent book follows the International Software Testing Qualifications Board's (ISTQB's) Advanced Level syllabus, with a focus on the material and learning objectives for the advanced test analyst. More importantly, it can help you prepare for the ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst exam.
