Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book is very useful for your ISTQB Advanced Technical Test Analyst Exam preparation. Very recommended.

Unfortunately, the e-book version doesn't work and has a lot of failures. It's practically impossible to see the chapter four without having to reboot the kindle almost every page.

If you want to purchase this book choose the printed format.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By ISTQB Student on May 22, 2013
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed reading it but unfortunately after studying I did not pass the ISTQB exam.

Content wise the book covers most of what is asked for the exam. A couple of things were not covered such as Classification Trees. Maybe this is present at the Vol.1. Some of the contents are also spread all over the book. Mainly the security chapter that is at least in 2 sections.

The Modified Condition/Decision Coverage is not correct and does not follow the DO/178B.
Please see Nasa's tutorial available on the web "A Practical Tutorial on Modified Condition/
Decision Coverage" where it states that the min number of test cases are equal to the number of atomic conditions + 1.
In the section covering MC/DC and in the exercises it is the stated that the number of test cases is equal to the number of atomic conditions!!

Some mistakes can be seen in some of the graphs namely wrong arrows in the state transition chapter!

Format: Paperback
Rex Black and Jamie Mitchell have pulled together all the information, along with many practical examples and exercises, which will enable any experienced software tester to pass the ISTQB Advanced Technical Test Analyst certification test. As with Rex Black's other books for the Rex Black Consulting Services (RBCS) Advanced Test Manager and Advanced Test Analyst courses, the book's chapters follow the same organization as the ISTQB Certified Tester Advanced Level Syllabus. Advanced Software Testing Vol. 3 includes all the material presented in the RBCS ISTQB-ATTA course. If you take the on-line course, you'll notice the narration follows the book almost verbatim in many sections. If you're planning on taking either the on-line or instructor led course, this book will provide excellent preparation.

While the book's main objective is to prepare the reader to pass the ISTQB-ATTA certification exam, the purpose of certification (and the book) is make better software testers. Advanced Software Testing Vol. 3 fulfills this purpose also. If you have no experience in structure-based testing (like me), this book presents control-flow and path testing with sufficient detail, examples, and exercises to enable you to start using these techniques. The book also does a great job of showing the reader how to apply all techniques to test non-functional software quality characteristics. It covers all the characteristics not covered in the Advanced Test Analyst book. The section on performance testing does a great job in presenting practical information, and pitfalls, on this difficult to test characteristic. And if you have ever considered using automation, you should definitely read the section on test tools.
