Overview/Description

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.
