Workplace Scenario

In the Mythical Man Month, Fred Brooks observed that testing can often consume 50% of the time and effort in software development. Thus, learning how to design an effective testing process could contribute significantly to the timely and cost-effective delivery of software products. An understanding of the basics of effective software testing will help you with future projects and when you are involved with implementing new systems in your career.

In this memo to your supervisor you will summarize the general principles of testing and summarize how you have used two of them in your past programming experience.
