Chapter 6. Examining the Code > Generic Code Review Checklist

Generic Code Review Checklist

The rest of this chapter on static white-box testing covers some problems you should look for when verifying software for a formal code review. These checklists[1] are in addition to comparing the code against a standard or a guideline and to making sure that the code meets the project's design requirements.

[1] These checklist items were adapted from Software Testing in the Real World: Improving the Process, pp. 198-201. Copyright 1995 by Edward Kit. Used by permission of Pearson Education Limited, London. All rights reserved.

To really understand and apply these checks, you should have some programming experience. If you haven't done much programming, you might find it useful to read an introductory book such as Sams Teach Yourself Beginning Programming in 24 Hours by Sams Publishing before you attempt to review program code in detail.
