The testing of a state-based system may involve the application of a number of adaptive test cases. Where the implementation under test (IUT) is deterministic, the response of the IUT to some adaptive test case c 1 could be capable of determining the response of the IUT to another adaptive test case c 2 . Thus, the expected cost of applying a set of adaptive test cases depends upon the order in which they are applied. This paper explores properties of adaptive test cases and considers the
