ISTQB Foundation - Conclusion
5 Lectures 02:49

This is the Sample Paper A, provided by ISTQB® and BCS® for the ISTQB – BCS Certified Tester Foundation Level 

Best use of it is to simulate it as if you were at the center.

Print it out if you can, then save the answer sheet for later.

Use the mock answer sheet, the one with the blank space and fill in using a pencil as you go through the test.

Benchmark yourself using 1 hour slot.

Good luck.
