@gnat I'd consider my second edit to be a duplicate of the original post.

comment Should unit-tests be entirely self-contained?
@MichaelT To my mind the two questions are similar indeed, and thanks for pointing that out. However I do not find mine to be a duplicate. The question you have linked pertains to sharing data between two points. My question is supposed to pertain to whether or not one can reasonably assume that after a module has been deemed to work in the way that is expected two other tests can be constructed based on that information. If that assumption can be made subsequent tests will be concise and to the point. Otherwise they will consist of the previous test(s) and some further testing.
