Overview/Description

In this 17-video course, explore part of chapter 6 from the ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Level 2018 certification exam syllabus, which focuses on test tool concepts, including considerations, classifications, test automation, and effective use. First, take an overview of the tools used to support testing activities. Next, learners look at the classifications of test tools and understanding their purpose. Then you will examine various tools for specific tasks: managing tests and testware; static testing; test design and implementation; test execution and logging; performance measurement and dynamic analysis; and tools for special testing requirements. Learn about benefits of test automation and its associated risks, and examine the special considerations associated with test execution tools and test management tools. Next, explore the main principles of test tool selection, study objectives for using pilot projects to introduce new test tools, and take a look at the success factors related to evaluating, implementing, deploying, and supporting test tools. To conclude the course, an exercise involves identifying and classifying test tools and their effective use.
