I don't trust alternator tests. I've had them tested at auto parts stores and tell me they are good, but when it's in the car it doesn't make enough juice. Usually it's the voltage regulator that goes bad. When you start turning on accessories and demanding more power from the alternator, the regulator won't increase the output. They can't test putting a load on it like that on those testers at the store. You have to do it in the car with the engine running and use a volt meter.
The few, the proud, the boosted!
