But first, I’d like you guys to meet M.P. Rashid - Think Verification’s first guest author. He is a verification engineer (how else) at Tata Elxsi in Banglore. He’s really enthusiastic about verification with Specman and a regular reader of Think Verification (way to go!). Today he’s going to talk about using hook methods (hooks) efficiently, which is a concept we should all get familiar with.

Before we get started - just a quick reminder that if you would like to share your thoughts about functional verification, Think Verification warmly welcomes guest authors and bloggers.
