Description
  • Learn black-box (functional) test design techniques to find more bugs—faster
  • Explore white-box (structural) methods to add more depth to your test cases
  • Examine exploratory testing approaches to replace ad hoc testing
  • Find out when to use each test design technique for the best results
  • Learn the value of defect taxonomies in test case design

Key Test Design Techniques begins where many software testing courses end. Once the test plans are written, test teams are formed, and test tools are selected, 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 six hours over two days.

Explore the science and the art of functional, structural, and exploratory testing right to your computer. The respected instructor shares key test design techniques, including equivalence class and boundary value testing, decision table testing, state transition testing, and all pairs testing. Leave this class with a newfound confidence for developing test cases that find important bugs earlier.

Students receive a full set of optional test case writing exercises (including a specification and example answers) to practice the techniques 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.
