Course Description

*** Probably THE MOST POPULAR ISTQB COURSE on Udemy! ***

*** Course Updated as of November 2016! ***

*** Only ISTQB course in Udemy which is taught by Real Software Professional not by teachers of institutes***

The course is very good, quality and slides by instructor are too good. I didn't took course for ISTQB but for understanding software testing and it is explain prety well. 5 star to course :) by Ankit Sharma


Key Points:

  • ISTQB is not so easy to be covered in only few hours only, so join course which covers full syllabus
  • Course is developed by real IT persons, not instructors of some boring institutes, so real scenarios would be covered here
  • Success rate of ISTQB ceritified are huge after completing this course in ISTQB
  • Don't spend your hard earnings on so expensive course unnecessary

The Foundation Level exam tests for knowledge, not skill.

It provides information about the certificate holder's level of familiarity with the most common concepts of software testing and the associated terminology.

I was looking for course not for learning Software Testing, as I wanted to move to Software testing industry. I was unaware of what I need to do, what best practices and others. But this course is so simple that it explained all stuff of Software Testing and preparing for ISTQB cerification also. This course really helped me understand each process of the SDLC and has explained the different types of testing in a hands on approach. I feel have earned more than I spent on this course.
