I have recently come into the big wide world in computing after finishing my HND, and got a job as a tester. I have recently been asked to produce a report on the testing methods currently being used at my company. Can anyone recommend what I should do, what sites I may visit, any training courses, any books I may read, any sample reports I may lookat. Thanks
There are many books out there that can help you - but what will be looking for in these books? You mention the goal of your report is to write what your company currently does. Is part of the goal also to recommend alternative solutions? Also what types of testing are you reporting on? For example are you looking at performance testing as well as functional testing? What about usability testing? Finally, are you going to be considering anything with automation?
The reason I make all those distinctions is because certain books will give you more or less information depending upon what you are looking for in them.
Not sure if this will help you prepare your report or not, but one of the best books to start with when it comes to software testing is Cem Kaner's "Testing Computer Software". You can find more info about this and other books at http://qabooks.com. Good Luck!
