PDF올렸다가 79달러에 판매되는 걸 보고 언능 내림 -_ㅠ;
UT과정을 정리하는데 꽤 도움이 되어,
나름 인상깊었던 구절(?)을 급 요약해서 아래에 덧붙입니다.

Finding good test participants

1.        Additional payment for introducing another participant

2.       Avoid facilitating tests with your own friends and relatives

3.       Thank you letters after the test

4.       Provide reasonable incentive – avoid to give them promotional gifts

Selecting good test tasks and scenarios

1.        Focus your test on core tasks, rather than on what’s new or fun or easy to test.

2.       Let test participants define their own tasks

3.       Write Scenarios – not just tasks

4.       Avoid tasks you think are humorous

5.       Avoid all describing the steps, Give the task with clues and a goal to participant
