What some of our students say about this course:

"This is an essential course for those attempting to pass their ISTQB or simply needing a refresher on software testing principles. The instructor is knowledgeable and has comprehensive lectures I cannot recommend it enough." - Mark Darling

"Good examples, Great Knowledge. Very Clear Voice and slides are to the point. I tried other ISTQB courses on Udemy but this is the best one. Please include practice question after every chapter and update content according to new syllabus."Tarun Goswami

"I had tried studying the syllabus on my own and that was not working for me. My wife found the udemy site and this course. It was on sale so I figured why not. The videos were mostly what was in the syllabus but chapter 4 was a huge help. The explanations and examples used really helped me understand EVA, BVA, Decision tables, and state transitions. I watched all the videos and took even more notes. I was finally able to pass the exam!" - James Regan

"Smooth sail. I find the explanation straight, easy and to the point. No complications, broken down for easy assimilation. I have awarded a 4 star because it is still early in the course. However I could not resist rating."Bolaji Yemi
