Software Testing Foundation 2018: Fundamentals
In this 13-video course, learners explore part of chapter 1 from the ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Level 2018 certification exam syllabus, encompassing the fundamentals of testing, its importance, and general testing principles. Learn what software testing is and its overall role in the development process. Examine objectives for any test project and roles played by testing and debugging in software development, and how they differ. Learn benefits of performing software testing and how it can lead to a successful product. Look at the relationship between testing and quality assurance and their role in developing higher quality products. Learn about software problems, what errors, defects, and failures are and distinguish between them, their root causes, and effects. Review the seven testing principles: 1 and 2, on the presence of defects and the reality of exhaustive testing; 3 and 4, on early testing and defect clustering; 5 and 6, on the pesticide paradox and context dependency; and 7, the error absence fallacy. The concluding exercise deals with major reasons for testing and its importance in software development.

Begin by looking at relationships between development and test activities in the sequential development model and in the incremental and iterative development model. Learners will begin to understand the importance of selecting the software development lifecycle model based on the project and product context, and learn good testing characteristics applicable to any lifecycle model. Then examine different test levels in software development and the various attributes that characterize each level. Learn the various attributes associated with component integration testing, system integration testing, and system testing, including objectives, test basis, and objects, defects and failures, approaches and responsibilities. Look at various forms of acceptance testing, including user, operational, contractual, and regulatory, as well as alpha and beta testing, and various attributes, including objectives, test basis, and objects, defects, and failures, approaches, and responsibilities. A concluding exercise assesses knowledge of development models and test levels.

Software Testing Foundation 2018: Test Types & Maintenance Testing
Learners explore the remainder of chapter 3 from the ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Level 2018 certification exam syllabus in this 11-video course, which covers static testing and related review process, types, and techniques. Begin by examining the purpose of performing functional testing and look at characteristics evaluated by functional testing. This leads into nonfunctional testing, its purpose, and the characteristics it evaluates. Delve into the purpose of performing white-box testing and identify the characteristics that this testing evaluates. Then move into change-related testing: the purposes of performing both confirmation and regression testing, as well as characteristics each test type evaluates. Take a look at test types and test levels, and see that any of the test types may be performed at any test level. Examine the purpose and objectives of performing maintenance testing, its scope considerations, and the reasons that may trigger the need for performing maintenance testing. Finally, examine the role played by impact analysis in maintenance testing. A concluding exercise covers types of tests and maintenance testing.

Software Testing Foundation 2018: Static Testing
In this 18-video course, explore the remainder of chapter 3 from the ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Level 2018 certification exam syllabus, which covers static testing and related review process, types, and techniques. Begin by looking at the static testing techniques available and work products that can be examined with static testing. Examine various benefits provided by performing static testing in the software development lifecycle. Learn how to perform a review on source code and requirements specification. Understand the differences between static and dynamic testing techniques in respect to objectives, types of defects, and roles of the techniques used. Learners will examine the work product review process and responsibilities for roles associated with a formal review. You will identify attributes associated with various reviews: informal, walkthrough, technical, and inspection reviews. Then view the various individual review techniques for ad hoc, checklist-based, scenario-based, role-based, and perspective-based review types. Next, examine the organizational factors that can help provide a successful review outcome. A final exercise reviews static testing.

Software Testing Foundation 2018: Testing Techniques
In this 10-video course, you will explore part of chapter 4 from the ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Level 2018 certification exam syllabus, covering categories of test techniques, with a primary focus on experience-based test techniques. Start by learning how to identify the factors that influence which test technique to use. The purpose of a test technique is to help identify test conditions, test cases, and test data. Then learners will examine black-box, white-box, and experience-based test techniques and their characteristics. Explore what each of those experience-based testing techniques are, and identify their common characteristics, by focusing on error guessing, exploratory testing, and checklist-based testing and the benefits they provide when testing a software product. In the final tutorial of this course, look at exploratory testing, performing tests on software based on the tester's unique domain-based experience. To conclude the course, an exercise covers describing various testing techniques available in the experience-based testing category.

Software Testing Foundation 2018: Black-box & White-box Testing Techniques
Explore part of chapter 4 from the ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Level 2018 certification exam syllabus covering categories of test techniques, focusing on white-box and black-box testing techniques. One of these is equivalence partitioning, applied to derive appropriate test cases from requirements. In this 17-video course, learn to define test cases by applying equivalence partitioning. Examine boundary value analysis to develop appropriate test cases and define these by applying boundary value analysis, given a set of requirements. You will learn about decision-table testing to derive and define test cases from requirements and when to apply state transition testing, to derive appropriate test cases from requirements and define test cases by applying it. Identify the process involved in deriving test cases from a use case, and define test cases when given a specific use case and statement testing and coverage. Next, explore how to achieve statement coverage, identify decision testing and coverage, and achieve decision coverage in software source code. Then examine benefits of white-box testing. A final exercise deals with black-box and white-box testing techniques.
