Usability Testing Essentials provides readers with the tools and techniques needed to begin usability testing or to advance their knowledge in this area. The book begins by presenting the essentials of usability testing, which include focusing on the user and not the product; knowing when to conduct small or large studies; and thinking of usability as hill climbing. It then reviews testing options and places usability testing into the context of a user-centered design (UCD). It goes on to discuss the planning, preparation, and implementation of a usability test. The remaining chapters cover the analysis and reporting of usability test findings, and the unique aspects of international usability testing. This book will be useful to anyone else involved in the development or support of any type of product, such as software or web developers, engineers, interaction designers, information architects, technical communicators, visual or graphic designers, trainers, user-assistance specialists, and instructional technologists. * Provides a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to usability testing, a crucial part of every product's development* The fully updated four-color edition now features important usability issues such as international testing, persona creation, remote testing, and accessibility* Follow-up to Usability Testing and Research (9780205315192, Longman, 2001), winner of the highest-level award from the Society for Technical Communication

"Beg, borrow, buy or steal a copy of Usability Testing Essentials: Ready, Set.Test! This is as good a book on usability testing as you are going to find, and it will provide practical guidance regardless of your experience level.if you want a single book on usability, a book that will touch upon the primary topical areas in sufficient detail to be useful, Usability Testing Essentials: Ready, Set.Test! by Carol Barnum is the one to read. You won't be disappointed."--User Experience, Volume 11, Issue 4, 4th Quarter 2012 "Have you been inspired to try usability testing, but not sure exactly how to go about it? Carol Barnum's book will take you step-by-step through all you need to do. Plus, she gives you a solid background in the context and history of testing - and adds a valuable chapter on international testing. Carol is highly regarded as a teacher, an academic, and a practitioner, and all three of her roles shine through in this book" -- Caroline Jarrett, User Experience and Usability Consultant, Effortmark Limited, author of Forms that Work "Carol Barnum's Usability Testing Essentials delivers just what the title promises. Readers who are new to usability studies will find here all they need to know to design and execute a test, analyze the test data, and provide an effective report with recommendations for clients. But even usability experts will find the book chock full of ideas, insights, and suggestions that will improve their practice and their teaching in this increasingly important area of study. Barnum's expertise on the subject shines through on every page, but the book's greatest strength is its careful attention to analyzing test results, a topic that earlier texts have tended to gloss over much too quickly." -- George Hayhoe, PhD, Mercer University School of Engineering "Usability Testing Essentials will guide you through both conducting a usability evaluation and making the decisions that will make it a useful and effective part of any user experience project. Carol Barnum places usability evaluation into the larger context of user-centered design. It is a valuable resource for anyone getting started in usability and a excellent companion to both Letting Go of the Words and Forms that Work."-Whitney Quesenbery, WQusability "Carol Barnum has done a wonderful job of distilling her research, consulting, and teaching experience into this very lively, practical book on how to do usability testing. You get up-to-date, step-by-step help with lots of variations to suit your own situation. You see each part in action through the running case study. If you have a global market, you'll especially want the chapter on international usability testing. This is a great addition to the usability toolkit. -- Janice (Ginny) Redish, Charter member of the UPA, author of Letting Go of the Words - Writing Web Content that Works "Carol is a rare breed, both an academic and a practitioner. Her voice of experience comes across clearly, backed by references that illustrate where and who our methods came from. Newcomers to usability testing will find a solid introduction; while those more experienced will find unexpected insights into the field."-Carolyn Snyder, Snyder Consulting

5.0 von 5 Sternen I'll say it again: This is a GREAT book 16. Juni 2012
Von Stephen Krug - Veröffentlicht auf
As I said when I wrote the foreword, you might wonder why I'd recommend a book about usability testing when I have one out there myself. But when I wrote Rocket Surgery, my purpose was to explain The Least You Can Do(tm) about usability testing so that people who didn't have *any* time to do it might actually get started. But, of course, there's a ton more to know about it, and this book is currently the best way to learn it all.

On the one hand, it's a great textbook. Carol's been teaching at Southern Polytechnic for a long time and she's groomed a whole generation of testers, so she's really good at explaining it all. And she covers everything you need to know.

On the other hand, it's a terrific, comprehensive (unlike mine), practical guide, because at the same time she's been teaching, Carol's also been running the university's usability lab for real-world clients, so she knows how the work is done--inside and out.

As another reviewer here said, "The book is thorough enough to be used as a textbook but practical enough to be used by professionals."

I'd say, "No matter what stage you're at--beginner or seasoned veteran--if you're interested in usability testing, this book should be on your shelf."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Top-notch guide to usability testing 23. Februar 2011
Von Steve Van Atta - Veröffentlicht auf
The author has obviously done (and taught others to do) all three elements of the book's tagline numerous times. Her choice of topics and tone provided a great balance between real-world practicality and hardcore science. Plenty of data-driven examples and tools, how-tos, and an obvious delight in helping the reader prepare for their next usability test. A wonderful reference and in-the-trenches guide.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great introduction to Usability & Testing 23. April 2012
Von Hoppaguy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
"Usability, Testing, Essentials" is a very practical book that literally shows you a step by step process of how to conduct a usability testing. The layout of the book is fantastic in that the chapters are set up logically from introducing the subject of usability testing, then moving into the planning and preparation phase, then onto the analyzing and reporting of the findings. I especially liked chapter 7 which is how to conduct a usability test. In this section, she explains how to be an effective and unbiased moderator because you can lead users down certain assumptions based on your own body language. There is also a good section on international usability testing and how to localize the test for those users. Overall the book is great if you need a practical guide in how to conduct a usability test.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good text, awful Kindle presentation 28. Oktober 2011
Von Vlad Golovach - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The book is quite good, perfectly on pair with the green and purple ones (Handbook of Usability Testing: Howto Plan, Design, and Conduct Effective Tests and A Practical Guide to Usability Testing respectively, previous best books on the subject). And this book is much more fresh (both green and purple books was published quite a long time ago for IT standarts).

Sadly, publisher (Morgan Kaufmann) did terrible work on converting this book to Kindle. It really looks awful, it is hard to read, images are randomly cropped or displaced. I have yet to see worse designed Kindle book and I have seen alot.

Still, great deal since you can rent it. For such a price it's probably best introductory book for topic of (more or less) serious usability research.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent UX resource, packed with useful information 15. Dezember 2011
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I had the great pleasure of taking Usability Testing under Dr. Barnum for her graduate course at Southern Polytechnic. We used this book, of course, as the primary text. Dr. Barnum, a tireless end-user advocate and devoted teacher with seemingly limitless energy, secured a real-world client for our class project. Using the effective, low-cost techniques outlined in this book, our small team produced a formal usability report for our client (who was thrilled with the work). I recommend this book to anyone new to the field and those who need a single reference to walk them through each step in the UX testing process.
