A remarkable book on VS 2010 Testing tools March 1 2011
By Steven Borg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jeff Levinson has written a remarkable book. Remarkable because it distills a massive amount of information into a clear, readable book that will teach you how to best use the Visual Studio 2010 Testing Tools. Remarkable because it shows not just how to use the strengths of the tools, but also how to work-around any of its weaknesses. Remarkable because Jeff walks you through the implementation strategies that can bring real business value, not just to the testing team, but to the entire organization. If you are implementing the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 test tools, this book belongs on your desk. My dog-eared, and marked up copy sits on mine.

Note: I was a technical reviewer for the book and have had a printed copy now for 6 months. I can't recommend it enough.

What the book does not cover March 13 2011
By GP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I realized I was in for disappointment when I read the section on what the book does not cover - stress and load testing in particular. I mistakenly assumed they would be a central part of the book.

By and large the book covers the obvious - things you can learn from VS2010 after a couple of hours VS test use or by reading the online help. The book lost the opportunity to discuss the stuff that takes longer to figure out or can only be got from the VS test teams blogs, or by personal experience.

However, the book does a great job of explaining what it purports to explain and is a great introduction to VS test.

Testing made easy March 1 2011
By MrHinsh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jeff's book is by far the most in-depth investigation of the Test features in Visual Studio ALM I have seen. His insight and experience help the readers understand the impact of poor testing and how they can improve the quality of their software. I particularly liked the obvious real-world understanding of the realities of software testing when applied in practice and the effort by the author to show the readers the ways around those realities.

This book provides a high-level overview of the MSDN docs May 4 2011
By Max Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provides only a high-level overview of the MSDN documentation. It does not fill in the gaps where the MSDN documenation is lacking. The following are missed opportunities for this book:
1. There is no detail how to keep your test assemblies in sync with your automated tests in Microsoft Test Manager.
2. There is no guidance in modifying the DefaultTemplate.xaml workflow for your Team Builds. Tests in Visual Studio 2010 revolve around Team Build. Because of this, you will almost certainly need to make some modifications.
3. There is no guidance on how to test using physical enviornments.
4. There is no guidance on how the DeploymentItemAttribute actually works in VS 2010.
5. There is no guidance on writing C++ unit tests.
6. There is no guidance on writing data-driven tests.
Chapters 1 through 5 were excellent. Chapters 6 and 7 were difficult to understand. April 14 2014
By Julie FInbraaten - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Chapters 1 through 5 were 5 stars but Chapters 6 and 7 were 2 stars for me. I'm not a programmer (I'm a QA analyst) so it was hard to stay awake while reading 6 and 7 and I didn't understand most of it. Regardless it was still a worthwhile read and we are following most of the principles in Chapters 1 through 5.
