Sue Conger's The New Software Engineering: "Testing Terminology"

Read the "Testing Terminology" section in Chapter 17 (pages 690–694).

In this unit, you have a quick introduction to many terminologies used in the science (and art) of testing. Do not be concerned if you do not understand them fully. We will go back and examine these topics in more depth by looking closely at test strategies (white-box, black-box, top-down, and bottom-up) and examining the levels of testing (unit test, integration test, and system test).
