    more from this reviewer

    Excellent book with lots of technical and MS inside info

    A best practice book it is loaded with real life experience of the authors (Alan Page, Ken Johnston and Bj Rollison).
    It is loaded with detailed information of MS engineering processes, the tester's (aka SDET) role, common testing techniques and much more.
    Alan, Ken and Bj have divided the chapters authoring among them. Each has his own way of writing, although different in style, the final result is excellent. I highly recommend the book for all those who are into software testing.

    Filled with real practical advice

    I have read a few books on software testing and this one is the best yet. The authors of this book have done a great job of distilling real world experience into practical techniques. It starts by explaining how Microsoft organizes to ship software and the role testers fill. <BR/><BR/>I have been a tester at a few different companies and even worked on some Microsoft products but not for Microsoft. This book provided me great insights into how Microsoft works and new tools to use in my own work.
