Visionpace has a stored webinar about Fox Unit.

I just ran it, and it is an excellent review of both the Test Driven Development Process, and a very good basic tutorial on Fox Unit. I have been programming for over 30 years, with 10 years in FoxPro and VFP. I have been reading about TDD for about a year now, but was not ready to jump into it. This webinar and the FoxPro Advisor article on TDD (May 2004) have convinced me that TDD is the way to go for all of my development, and Fox Unit is the way to get there.
