<p>This is a review of System-level Test and Validation of Hardware/Software Systems (edited by Matteo Sonza-Reorda, Zebo Peng, and Massimo Violante). The result of a European-Union-funded project: COTEST, Testability Support in a Co-design Environment, the book is composed of reports from several different research projects. The chapters' average quality is very high, and the ones on high-level fault models and test generation are especially useful. Don't expect to find the answers to the problem of effective system test here. That's intractable, but anyone working in system test will find that this book moves the conversation along nicely.</p>
