Description
  • Make a good start getting additional information to supplement the requirements using the Test Matrix technique
  • Find more defects faster using any of the five black-box (functional) techniques practiced during the class
  • Design white-box (structural) test cases to cover all of the code while supporting fast debugging
  • Implement exploratory testing to successfully supplement black and white box testing
  • Choose the techniques that are most useful for your current project’s challenges
 
Key Test Design Techniques begins where many software testing courses end: when it is time to create specific test cases. Because testing everything is impossible, the major task in test design is to choose a subset of all possible tests of program paths and data combinations to find important defects quickly. This course shows you how to create an effective set of test cases and develops your practical skills to become a better test engineer—in just seven hours over two days.
 
Explore the science and the art of functional, structural, and exploratory testing right on your computer. The respected instructor shares key test design techniques, including equivalence class, boundary value, decision table, state transition, and all pairs testing. Leave this class with a newfound confidence for developing test cases that find important bugs earlier.
 
Practice all techniques with a simple example during the class. Students receive a full set of optional test case writing exercises (including a specification and example answers) to practice the techniques in greater detail after the class.
 
Who Should Attend
This course is appropriate for both novice and experienced software testers. Developers in an agile environment who are expected to write test cases will find it extremely useful. Test and development managers can also benefit. A background of basic development processes and test levels is helpful but not required.
