I've just got an offer for a software qa job. They do a lot of automated testing using home grown scripting language, but I haven't done ANY automated testing before. So, I'm looking for a good book on automated testing... any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Lessons Learned in Software Testing by Cem Kaner, James Bach and Bret Pettichord has a section about Automated Testing.
It has useful tips about: what to automate, what not to automate, problems etc.
I like this book because it gives you best practises and experiences from the field.
Note: The book contains much more subjects then automated testing.
