a good book that gives a decent overview of test cycle management March 28 2010
By KP - Published on
Format: Paperback
i read this book not for the ISTQB test but to understand the test cycle management process better and found that it could have used more details and example but overall i found this book to be good in terms for explaining test cycle management.

book starts off explaining test process and then giving examples of different SDLCs and how testing is done in those process.later chapters explain establishing test policy which describes and sets standards on quality and how to achieve it. Test Plan chapter goes in to detail on how to create a Test Plan and things it should include followed by chapter on Test Control which explains on how to monitor the testing process and reacting to test results, evulating if testing is complete and creating test result report.

Different technique, such as Six Sigma, CMMI, TMM, are explained to assist in approaching testing, improving development process, evaluating test process and performing audits. Deviation Management chapter explains documenting anomalies and Risk management chapter explain on how to identify and control the risk by using right test technique.

Later chapters talk about what is expected from QA staff and skills required by them, different test metrics and how to select test tools.
