Basics of Software Engineering Experimentation is a practical guide to experimentation in a field which has long been underpinned by suppositions, assumptions, speculations and beliefs. It demonstrates to software engineers how Experimental Design and Analysis can be used to validate their beliefs and ideas. The book does not assume its readers have an in-depth knowledge of mathematics, specifying the conceptual essence of the techniques to use in the design and analysis of experiments and keeping the mathematical calculations clear and simple. Basics of Software Engineering Experimentation is practically oriented and is specially written for software engineers, all the examples being based on real and fictitious software engineering experiments.

`If you are a researcher, you should master the approaches to empirical software engineering described by Juristo and Moreno.....If you are a practitioner, the advice in this book will enable you to read and assess the studies you find in your journals and at your conferences.....if you are an educator, this book will help you to guide your students in understanding that software engineering is far more than simply having a good technology idea and trying it out on a project.'
