Overview/Description

Learners explore the remainder of chapter 3 from the ISTQB Software Testing Foundation Level 2018 certification exam syllabus in this 11-video course, which covers static testing and related review process, types, and techniques. Begin by examining the purpose of performing functional testing and look at characteristics evaluated by functional testing. This leads into nonfunctional testing, its purpose, and the characteristics it evaluates. Delve into the purpose of performing white-box testing and identify the characteristics that this testing evaluates. Then move into change-related testing: the purposes of performing both confirmation and regression testing, as well as characteristics each test type evaluates. Take a look at test types and test levels, and see that any of the test types may be performed at any test level. Examine the purpose and objectives of performing maintenance testing, its scope considerations, and the reasons that may trigger the need for performing maintenance testing. Finally, examine the role played by impact analysis in maintenance testing. A concluding exercise covers types of tests and maintenance testing.
