Excellent, with a bit of room for more detail in next Version Dec 29 2009
By QAWeb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Readers' prerequisite for this book is to be a frustrated user of QTP.... easily accomplished by using QTP with only its online tutorial and help. Once you can navigate HP's help pages and recognize their circular cross references, then you're ready for this book!

I've hopped around this book as a reference as I convert recorded QTP tests to Descriptive Programming. My forum searching and chapter hopping gave me the false impresssion of progress... but only tiny steps. Having this book in hand, reading it linearly gives me new ideas and helps me break my tunnel vision.

I find a few areas of exasperation, squarely due to HP/Mercury's imperfect QA or "rush to market" (But QTP is on ver 10!!) It's to Mr. Lalwani's credit that he discovered so many undocumented bugs and wrinkles and put them in this book!
(e.g. p86's Note about a condition where the wait(0) statement takes 10 seconds)

As long as management is driven to publish sofware like QTP and QC "before its time" there will be QA and there will always be room for new, more detailed versions of a good book like this. The free UNofficial forum[s] mentioned in the book are a major reason QTP is as successful as it is. But this book is an indispensible distillation of many painfully learned successes. It will save you man hours and weeks. It is irreplaceeable as both a reference and a textbook.

For next versions, I recommend a more exhaustive index, more examples, even a list of annoyances which I'm sure are being generated by my peers and myself. And a CD of code. I'd pay more for a more exhaustive version and give it 5½ stars instead of 4½ at its present maturity. Even now it's worth much more than it sells for! Good job! Thank you!

THE Source for QTP knowledge and expertise! Nov. 6 2009
By Stephen A. Solomon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Greetings!
As a Systems QA Analyst by day, and a stock photographer at night, I read with great enthusiasm, Tarun Lalwani's excellent book, "QuickTest Professional Unplugged", the first of its kind! I am most impressed by Tarun's encyclopedic knowledge of QTP, many VBScript techniques not found even in the QTP User Guide or Help files, and his evident passion for helping others in using QTP to increase the awareness and potential of automated testing. This book is most comprehensive in its coverage of QuickTest Professional, starting out with the basics of automated testing, a great explanation of QTP's own Help files, the Object Repository, and then delving into Data tables, Actions, Checkpoints, Descriptive Programming techniques, Debugging, Recovery Scenarios, Regular Expressions, VBScript, to name but a few of the many topics covered in depth. "QuickTest Professional Unplugged" includes hundreds of screenshots, notes, explanations, and VBScript code examples to give the QA Analyst, Tester, or other IT professional, the tools to succeed in the automated testing world. I heartily recommend Tarun's superb book to anyone seeking expertise in automated testing!
Thank you,
Steve Solomon

Good reference book for advanced QTP users March 6 2011
By QAWebTester - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is for advanced QTP users, mostly people using descriptive programming.Author assumes you have some QTP knowledge (in the beginning of the book) and you know the basics of QTP.This book is not for beginners trying to learn QTP. It has lots of code samples on common challenges faced by QTP users with resolutions.

The book is a bit expensive and outdated March 6 2011
By DingDong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think the book is overpriced (currently selling more than $40). Also, the book is bit outdated as QTP is in version 11. Newbies should be aware of this is not a QTP introduction book. The book requires some basic knowledge of QTP and VBscript.
