The book was poorly translated from Dutch to English.
It seems as if the writers had 200 pages of content, but for comercial reasons, wrote twice as much.

If you're looking for an easy-to-understand approach to solving software testing problems, TMap Next delivers what you need. This book documents a practical approach to software testing, built on over 20 years of practical experience working with TMap, the previous iteration of the methodology.

I found this book especially helpful for deciding how to prioritize what was important to test and what was less important, given limited time for testing and people available for testing.

The authors have combined their experience into a guide that can help both inexperienced software testing teams set up a useful testing approach, as well as experienced teams who want to understand how to structure a software testing approach that helps determine how best to spend limited time and people when time-for-testing is squeezed on a project (which is nearly 100% of the time).

I recommend this book for the approach it describes and the practical lessons included in it.

Format: Hardcover
TMap Next is definetely an improvement over the first version of TMap. The first version was mainly concerned with justifying testing as an activity, establishing testing as a separate profession and emphasizing the need for structured testing. Times have changed however, and businesses have started to take testing more seriously than in the 90's when the first version came out. This version therefore takes all the above for granted and takes testing one step further. It is mainly concerned with offering the readers a detailed testing process from planning and preparation to execution and reporting. The testing activities are described in sufficient detail to be usable by practitioners in the field, which sets this book apart from most other test related books. There also seems to be more attention to political factors in testing, for example the testing process now explicitly includes ways for the stakeholders to influence testing. The latter being rather uncommon in the literature as well. I'd recommend reading this to keep up with current developments in the field.
