100 Percent Unit Test Coverage Is Not Enough

Summary:
Many people equate 100 percent unit test coverage with high code quality, but that is not enough.

Testers should review unit tests, even if they have high coverage levels, and either help improve the tests or supplement them with extra tests where necessary.
