Getting Better

Exploratory-testing evangelist Jon Bach once told me this:

  • Only one tester in ten that he’s interviewed claims to do anything at all toward professional improvement.

One way to become a better tester is to read.

From time to time I like to review one of the more important books about a tool or technique I’m working with. Among such books are the Cookbooks from O’Reilly.

Right now I’m working with C#, so before long I’ll spend an hour or two just leafing through the C# Cookbook, reviewing its recipes. When I do this, I almost always find something useful that I didn’t need before, but now do.

Here’s a link to some of these cookbooks on Amazon.
