Selenium Simplified

Free book on Selenium-RC.

This book is now out of print in paperback format, and available as a free download. Why? Because WebDriver arrived, the Selenium-RC interface is even further deprecated. While Selenium-RC is still supported in Selenium 3 you really shouldn't start using it now, you should use Selenium WebDriver instead
