I am new to testing and JUNIT, does your book require any understanding of JUNIT as a prerequisite to take full advantage of it? Is there a basic tutorial of JUNIT in your book to help people like me?

According to the TOC of the book, it seems that chapter two will be about the basic tests for different kind of methods, interfaces, constructors and so on... I think the book won't require any prerequisite on JUnit, but Java and J2EE development....

In the later chapters of Part II, the readers must possess intermediate J2EE knowledge level to do stuff in JUnit, I guess... But since I haven't read the book yet, I cannot say it for sure...

Let's wait for the author to come up with his view on his own book...

Any Java programmer can read and benefit from JUnit Recipes. The book is organized in such a way that if you are new to JUnit, you will read more of Part 1, and if you are familiar with JUnit, you will read less of Part 1.

If you are just starting with JUnit, then there are also good online tutorials available, from me, from Mike Clark, and a few others. Google "JUnit guide" for a list. Chapter 1 and the introduction to chapter 2 contain essentially the same material as my article "JUnit: A Starter Guide".
