Pre-release Testing

 <  Day Day Up  >  

In addition to feedback about its predecessor, this book benefited from usability testing of its own. Early drafts were reviewed by several experts including Web designers, interaction designers, and usability testers. These were intentionally not the academic human-computer interaction researchers who normally review books for the publisher, but rather practitioners who work on websites and Web applications. Their feedback helped:

  • Focus the book on important issues

  • Find good examples and choose the clearest ones

  • Eliminate poor and unnecessary examples

  • Eliminate unneeded text

  • Organize the bloopers more coherently and usefully.

In addition to pre-publication reviews, the almost-completed manuscript was given to a Web designer with instructions to try using it as a design tool and send us feedback. His main feedback was that the book needed a quick-reference blooper checklist, which, as mentioned above, we already planned based on feedback from GUI Bloopers readers.
