"One of the best for ISTQB Test Manager exams" - by Kannan on 01-APR-2010
Reviewer Rating: 1 star rating2 star rating3 star rating4 star rating5 star rating
If you are planning for ISTQB Test Manager exam, then probably this one the best.  It not only covers the exam topics but also covers the expectations of a test manager role.

However, the third chapter "test management" occupies almost 2/3 of the book which could have been split into 2 or more chapters.

Metric charts does not say how they are prepared (ex. the formulas required) but still useful.

Overall, this is the book you need if you want to learn more about Test Management.

I took about 8-10 days to study and appear for the examination and I hope that I will clear it ( awaiting results as I took the exam in India and ISTQB in India is a horrible experience in terms of their organizing and timely responses :-) ).
