7 Books or Blogs? Blogging – extracts from a blog I'm tired of......Interviewing people that haven't read a single book about testing......Interviewing people that don't have regular websites that they read to keep up to date on what's happening around matters relating to testing......Interviewing people that boast of their ISTQB qualification but can't even tell me how to apply boundary value analysis or basic combinatorial techniques properly... How can you have 3-6 years experience in testing and never have read a book or even have regular websites or blogs that you visit... and then claim that you are passionate about it!!!
