This post will only scratch the surface of a very large topic.

First, I would like to thank Vladimir Khorikov for his comments on a draft of this article. You would expect the author of Unit Testing Principles, Practices, and Patterns to disagree with the opinions expressed in this post, but Vlad and I very much agree about using larger units in unit tests, as they allow us to cover units of behaviour instead of units of code.
