It's taking me a while to write a review, but having spoken to other Tester/Test Manager who have experienced the same issue as I did, I have decided to write a review so that people think twice before purchasing this book.
So, I was really looking forward to reading the book to help me with my exam, but when I got it I was deeply dissapointed. Rex seems to talk about his days as a consultant far too often throughout the book and I failed to understand how this information would help me.
I personally gave up reading it, as I could not easiliy find the information necessary for revision. Having spoken to other people who purchased the book, they agreed with me and ended up ditching the book and revised the syllabus instead.
Very dissappointing unless you want to see Rex's CV

Doesn't really cover much that you can't read from the syllabus which is freely available. Doesn't seem to be particularly helpful towards the exam, and the sample questions seem rather poor. I found the book to be rather tedious.
A must read to make yourself a valuable person in the organization2014年8月6日にインドでレビュー済み
Very good book. This book helps you to prepare for the CTAL -TM exam and more importantly enhances your testing skills. Scenarios and real life stories given in this book is just amazing. while reading the book, I went into memory lane of projects that I had executed in the past or working currently. This helped me to correct any mistakes that I had done and also enhanced my ability to work as a better Test manager for upcoming project. One other aspect that I liked about this book is focus on test team role for successful project releases and helping testing community understand how they can make themselves as a value add to their organization. Big fan of Rex Black now :)
