Title: Handbook of Usability Testing: How to Plan, Design, and Conduct Effective Tests
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: Jeffrey Rubin
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
An excellent book for budding usability folks


The author provides a supermarket of information from which you can choose your approach and method for performing usability testing. I had a little usability-testing experience when I bought this book. It quickly gave me some ways to streamline my process, plus some ways to shore up my process where it was weak. The most important thing this book gave me, however, was an understanding of when to use "quick and dirty" usability testing and when to perform a more thorough study.

I have never laughed so hard...


when reading a technical book. You will find yourself busting out with "that's so true it's hilarious" laughter fits. It is truly amazing to me how we can be such "designer's and engineers" when building our own websites, but such "end users" when using other's websites. I have always had the "Don't make me think" frustration underlying many website (and software for that matter) experiences and frequently my website feedback and reviews would reflect this sentiment.

This book will prove itself to you because Steve causes you to draw on your own experiences as a web user to understand what your users want from your site.

Good Book


Don't ignore this book because of its low price. I don't have time to read this book from cover to cover. But I read those sections that is important to my projects. All the chapters I read are very clear, to the point and well written.
This is not a reference book. It skips such parts like advanced user interface controls and some other things. But for those things it covers, it covers them very good.
Now I find I spend more time on this book than other big reference books I have about VB.NET.
