ISTQB - Testing Advanced Level(CTAL) Exam Preparation Guide
To take the Advanced Level exams, you require a Foundation Level Certificate. ISTQB also recommends practical experience before taking the exam.
Study of the advance level and its certification is to enhance knowledge and awareness and most importantly implement the learning to improve the quality of day to day work, which will eventually return good career growth.
Domain Testing: Learn in 10 Minutes
What is Domain Testing?
Domain Testing is a type of Functional Testing which tests the application by giving inputs and evaluating its appropriate outputs. It is a software testing technique in which the output of a system has to be tested with a minimum number of inputs in such a case to ensure that the system does not accept invalid and out of range input values.
One of the most important White Box Testing method is a domain testing. The main goal of the Domain testing is to check whether the system accepts the input within the acceptable range and delivers the required output. Also, it verifies the system should not accept the inputs, conditions and indices outside the specified or valid range.
Domain testing is different from domain specific knowledge you need to test a software system.
Structural Testing Tutorial: Learn in 10 Minutes
What is Structural Testing?
Structure Testing is nothing but testing of the structure of the software system or component.
It checks the implementation of the program or code. The objective of Structural Testing is not to check different input or output conditions but to check different data and programming structure used in the program. It can also be called Glass Box Testing, White Box Testing, Clear Box Testing, Open Box Testing, Logic Driven Testing or Path Driven Testing.
Impact analysis in software testing
With the incorporation of new features into application or product, it becomes imperative to check the influence of these new features or changes on the performance of the system. For this reason, Impact analysis is done.
Learn Design Validation
Validation is concerned with demonstrating the consistency and completeness of design with respect to the user needs. This is the stage where you actually build a version of the product and validate against the user requirements.
Design Verification Process
This tutorial provides an overview of the steps or procedure performed during software design verification process.
Design verification Process:
Verification Testing can be defined as a method of confirmation by examining and providing evidence that the design output meets the design input specifications. An essential process during any product development that ensures the designed product is same as the intended use.
Design input is any physical and performance requirement that is used as the basis for designing purpose. Design output is the result of each design phase and at the end of total design effort. The final design output is basis for device master record.
Monkey Testing Tutorial: Comparison with Gorilla Testing
What is Monkey Testing?
Monkey Testing is defined as the kind of testing that deals with random inputs.
Now question arise that why it is called Monkey Testing? Why is this 'Monkey' here? Here is the answer.
1. In Monkey Testing the tester (sometimes developer too) is considered as the 'Monkey'
2. If a monkey uses computer he will randomly perform any task on the system out of his understanding
3. Just like the tester will apply random test cases on the system under test to find bugs/errors without predefining any test case
