The ﬁve tables that follow are meant as memory joggers. They are not a substitute for
study of the individual methods described in this book. However, after the methods have
become familiar, preferably via practical hands-on testing of most of them, the tables can
be used to check whether there might be a better way to attack a given problem. Most
analysts give preference to a few trusted favorite tests, and perhaps bend the test objective
a bit to allow their use-a dangerous habit.
