Overview/Description
Effective software testing is integral to mitigating harm caused by software failures and providing confidence in software systems. Knowing how to leverage the tools built into Visual Studio is vital in any software testing environment. In this course, you’ll learn how to run tests and perform exploratory testing including fast forwarding test cases, setting test run states, updating multiple test cases at once, performing inline editing of tests during execution, as well as generating a test case from test and performing requirement-based exploratory testing of a work item. You'll also learn how to manage, analyze, track, and verify bug metrics, analyze reports, and manage bug flow. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the 70-497: Software Testing with Visual Studio certification exam.
