I'm trying to run my first tests, following along the tute in Agile Web Dev with rails book. I have a table with a created_at timestamp column in mysql. My test always fails when testing the result of the created_at column. The book says my test should look like: assert_equal "2006-03-09 21:01:37", @thing.date_available_before_type_cast but when I run my test I get 1 error returned: "undefined method date_available_before_type_cast" what am I doing wrong?

There is an undefined method because your @thing has no date_available method. You only need to add the _before_type_cast suffix to make it work. Mark
