I rated five stars for the book's quality and effectiveness.
TestNG is a fundamental tool for software developers who want to obtain a good quality for the software through a powerful and versatile test environment.
TestNG Beginner's Guide is a great book. It treats not only the TestNG tool itself, but explains some important basis of the testing phase in the software development cycle.
The topic is well explained, with a clear language and a very good book organization. All the practice activities are explained step by step, with the correct quantity of images, so you don't need to know JUnit to experiment TestNG quickly.
I decided to adopt TestNG for a project I'm working on and through this book I rapidly built a good test suite, and experimented all the advantages of TestNG.

Packt was so kind to send me another book to look at. I've always been curious about testing in general and I was looking for some good stuff to hand to co-workers or otherwise interested people to get started with TestNG.

The Content
Chapter one gives a brief introduction about testing and test automation. How to get started with TestNG, where to get it from and how to integrate it into your favorite IDE. Eclipse is used throughout the book. Chapter two deals with the basic configuration and introduces test suites and the command prompt usage. It also adds a couple of tests for packages, classes and methods. Chapter three is all about annotations. Setup and destroy, disabling tests and how to use parameterization. Test groups are introduced in chapter four followed by adding dependencies in chapter five. Chapter six and seven deal with the factory annotation and parallelism in tests. Chapter eight gives an overview about build tool integration covering Ant and Maven. Logging and reporting about test runs is covered in chapter nine. Programmatic test creation is covered in chapter ten. A basic migration scenario is covered in chapter 11. The closing chapter deals with the differences between unit and functional testing and explains additional concepts like JMock, Mockito and how to use Selenium.

Writing and Style
Generally the instructions are clear and the screen-shots are helpful. The overall level of detail and mixed in complexity is appropriate. Overall an easy read and well structured. Great for beginners and even developers familiar with the topic could still use it as a reference.

Conclusion and recommendation
The book is aimed at introducing developers to TestNG.

TestNG Beginner's Guide is a nice book aimed at beginners who would like to learn java based Unit testing framework TestNG. TestNG is indeed very powerful framework for UT. This book uses practical method for learning, full of sample examples. And if you use eclipse as IDE you would really love it. It takes a deep drive into stuffs like testng.xml concepts, testng annotations, groups, dependency, parallelism any many more. And even if you already know parts of it, you'll unearth few more technique to effectively use TestNG in each chapter. Overall this is a good hands-on guide to learn TestNG.
