A word to Reader

Software Testing has gained a phenomenal importance in the recent years in the System Development Life Cycle. Many learned people have worked on the topic and provided various techniques and methodologies for effective and efficient testing. Today, even though we have many books and articles on Software Test Engineering, many people are fallacious in understanding the underlying concepts of the subject.
Software Testing Guide Book (STGB) is an open source project aimed at bringing the technicalities of Software Testing into one place and arriving at a common understanding.
This guide book has been authored by professionals who have been exposed to Testing various applications. We wanted to bring out a base knowledge bank where Testing enthusiasts can start to learn the science and art of Software Testing, and this is how this book has come out.
This guide book does not provide any specific methodologies to be followed for Testing, instead provides a conceptual understanding of the same.
Note to the Reader:
It is not our intention to tell you that this is a one-stop place for learning Testing. This is just a guide. Many eminent scientists have researched every topic you find in this book. We have just compiled everything in one place and made sure we explained each topic relating it to the practical world as we experienced it. If you find any subject matter that might look like we have copied from any existing book, we request you to let us know. It is not our intention to copy any material, and we brought out this book just to help Testing aspirants to have a basic understanding of the subject and guide them to be good at their job. All the material in this document is written in plain English, as we understand testing.
Please send in your comments, suggestions or a word of encouragement to the team.
