Why is testing taking so long?

When you are involved in software testing, you may have heard the following 3 common questions at the end, beginning or middle of any testing cycle.

1. Why did not you find that bug during testing cycle?
2. Why is testing taking so long?
3. Why did not you automate the damn thing?

I have answers for all three questions but Michael Boloton, the testing genius in our era, explained the answer for question 2 with some great examples. I would recommend this to be a must read for anyone work in software engineering.

Study the facts given by Michael. You will realize the truth of test estimation and traditional way of managing test processes.
