Summary
"The fourth edition of the widely adopted text and reference book is completely revised and updated and features a new section on Life Cycle-Based Testing. New chapters cover Software Complexity and Mutation Testing and Error Seeding. The text still provides a solid mathematical background in discrete mathematics and linear graph theory that is fundamental to understating software testing. The book also describes specification-based (functional) and code-based (structural) test development techniques, while extending this theoretical approach to less understood levels of integration and system testing"--
