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.
