Although they do cover many of the main topics of Selenium and it is an introduction to the testing framework, that's where its resemblance to a textbook ends. The language is unclear. Examples are poorly explained and contain errors. The general layout of the book is not intuitive. They do not go into any depth with each main concept at all. In sections of the book they restate the previously explained points or include duplication of code for the sake of lengthening the book - seriously. It's as if they were writing a secondary school paper that had to be 200 pages long and they just made it. It could have been 50 pages shorter.
The second half of the book deals with Selenium Remote Control (RC) and here is where some deviation takes place, at least for me. First off, I did not have the exact environment described in this book. I was close, but I had some set-up differences that caused some headaches. A number of the examples in the book just flat out would not work for me. Since my environment was different than that recommended (a Windows 7 machine on a 64-bit Athlon processor), I can't hold David responsible for my roadblocks. It does, however, show a critical issue with the Learn by Doing format of this book.Read more ›
