Format: Paperback
Note: There are two books with the identical title (but from different publishers).

Summary: If you already know the automated test capabilities of Visual Studio 2010, you might be dissapointed as the book does not contain any additional guidance compared to the integrated VS 2010 documentation. However the book is helpful as an introduction to the (automated) testing features of VS 2010.

I do recommend this book to you, if:
- you want to get an overview of the testing functionality in Visual Studio 2010 (for example to decide which VS editions you need to buy)
- you want to get started with software testing and are interested to learn what types of automated tests exist in VS 2010 and how to use/configure them

This is not the right book, if you:
- want to get started with manual testing and Microsoft Test Manager (MTM) (it's only very briefly covered in the book)
- are looking for best practices how to do software testing with Visual Studio (the book does not include a great deal of guidance)
- you are looking for a book that covered automated build and lab management scenarios (it's not part of the book)

The authors of this book gave me a free copy for review. I thought it was going to be a pre-published review, so I'll put in some of the comments here that I was going to send to the Authors directly (once I found it was already published). BTW the rating is not a favor to them for a free book.

They start out giving a nice overview of testing terms and phases AND they show VS2010 screen shots as they go. To some extent their script was pre-determined by VS2010 because the test phase names were pre-determined by MSFT (to mean what MSFT wanted them to mean). Not a big deal, because MSFT was fairly close to the Open Testing Standards definitions of these terms. Keep in mind however, that these terms are MSFT's VS2010 terms and not a generic term. For example: The term Unit Test has a specific VS2010 meaning to it, as VS2010 has a Unit Test Template (very similar to NUNIT tests). They also have specific terms such as "Manual Tests", "Web Performance Tests", "Coded UI Tests", "Load Tests" etc. These terms are primarily descriptions of templates and testing methods supported within VS2010. Chapter 1 takes care of explanation of terminology.

Chapter 2 Test Plan, Test Suite and Manual Testing - Overall they do a nice job here.
Chapter 3 Automated Tests - Introdution is a bit weak because most terms had already been defined. However, they do a good job of exposing VS2010 internals such as what files are created when creating these tests and what they mean. They do show how to add controls and validation to the tests. Overall, a good explanation of how it works.
Chapter 4 Unit Testing - This chapter is pay-dirt. SDLC studies show that 85% of all bugs are introduced in coding. So logically, it pays to hammer the code with Unit Testing.

The material in this book is a mile wide and in inch deep and I cannot find any use for it, after spending a lot of money to purchase.

I have books that cover same material, so feel I can make comparisons and judgement on usefulness of this book.

Just too many subjects covered too superficially. As I have subsequently learned most of the material in this book from other sources, I can see just how uselessly minimal the coverage of topics are in this book.

Additionally, because of minimal coverage of each topic, directions and information included are often misleading or hard to follow or apply.

I have a single book of 295 pages on a topic, MTM, which is covered in three, not ver long, chapters in this book, which could still have been useful if the required details to learn even part of subject were sufficient, but coverage is too haphazard to be helpful.

My own feeling when reading this book is that authors do not have expertise to cover topics in detail, and were more anxious to write book and less anxious to learn material in depth before doing so.

I highly recommend you save your money.

I will not by any more PACKT books.

I like the fact that this book is very easy to read. It takes you step by step in performing a variety of tests. The book itself itself is fairly thin, unlike most IT books. One the one hand, I like hat the book is so focused on the topic at hand. sometimes IT books can get overwhelming in their volume and detail. On the other hand, I wish this book had a little more detail. If you are fairly new to testing and want a good intro to setting up tests, I recommend this book. If you are an advanced developer you may feel this book is not technically detailed enough. I'd say it's a good companion book to have along with other visual studio reference material. Please note, some of the these tests are only available in VS Ultimate or Test Pro. If you have a lesser version, a VS reference book may cover the available test functionality.
