    Back in school, we spent two days of class time working with this. While an interesting concept, there were a number of mutation operators (LVR IIRC) that we couldn’t use. It also only really teaches how mutation testing works, which isn’t wildly used in industry given the current pitfalls. If your up for reading a book, “Introduction to Software Testing” is a very good and covers all of the concept here plus other testing methods.
