1. What is your favourite testing book/blog? Why is this your favourite?

Rita Mulcahy’s PMP Exam Prep. Although this book mainly discusses project management, it does take quality into account in a way that too few project managers I have worked with do.


2. How do you keep up to date with the software testing industry?

I attend local test conferences and seminars to learn the latest testing trends and meet test professionals from other areas.


3. What is the biggest misconception about testing that you’ve heard?

Testers can be replaced by automated tests.
