  5. You use “Q&A” throughout the book and it is incorrect. That stands for “Questions & Answers” the portion of a lecture/speech that is open to “Q&A”. The correct term is “QA”, Quality Assurance.

  6. p17, last bullet: “Provides recommendation on whether or not the application/system is ready for production.” This is incorrect. Testing only provides information – as to the state of the product. Management decides whether it’s ready for production based on previously defined acceptance levels.
