Started programming in High school, had my first computer job when I was 19, and have enjoyed it ever since. Considered myself to be a professional Developer and a professional SW Quality Engineer. The last 4 years I have spent working mostly in testing of Web Stack apps. Currently developing a few Web sites with my sons.

when you say fairly current, I think anything in the last 10 years will be good. Still be careful to eliminate Classics (such as "Software Testing Techniques" by Boris Beizer) that will be much older and contain very valuable information in that they layout foundational principles that we are still using today.

Dan, I like a lot what you would require. But I don't find that many testers (testing DB apps) are actually doing that many inserts and updates. Sure it happens but in small quantities to setup test data. In the shop I am in, the performance implications are taken care of by regular DBAs. More SQL experience is better, I would agree there.
