We know from the definition of UAT that the tests we design need to be formal so we need to know how to test formally, even though we will be aiming to generate simple tests based on our common-sense understanding of what the users’ needs are. We will also need a range of different kinds of tests to cover all the aspects of UAT, so we will need a range of design techniques.

In this chapter we will build the testing toolkit that we will need so that we can use it effectively when we come to construct the tests for UAT. As we do this we will explain the key terms you need to be aware of and the basic processes, and then we will go on to build a few simple tests as a way of practising the skills.
