Enough coverage to clear Foundation Level

I bought this book few months back. Got chance to start studying 2wks back, and registered for the exam on the same day, finished reading book and attempted mock test from the back of the book. Failed, got 24 question correct out of 40. Started reading book again without skipping a single line (which I did for first time), then attempted a mock test from the ISTQB website scored 35...

Finally yesterday I took the exam, cleared foundation level with 90% 36 correct question. If you read this book completely and understand each and every concept then you might score 100%... but I am sure you...

Finally yesterday I took the exam, cleared foundation level with 90% 36 correct question. If you read this book completely and understand each and every concept then you might score 100%... but I am sure you will not get any question from any mock test or other tests.... this test based on your understanding about the topics....don't need to remember all terms...as long as you recollect concept.

All the best...I am looking for next level now...!!!

The content is good but the pages are almost translucent.

As always I received the book in a good packaging from Flipkart. The book is essential to those who wish to appear for ISTQB exams and hence I decided to purchase it.

The content covers a broad range of topics and is theory-heavy. Freshers reading the book would find it a little difficult. But overall the book is a good buy.

My only complain is the quality of the paper used in the book. The contents of the back page is also somewhat visible on this ultra-thin paper and it is not easy on the eyes.

In this regard, one would expect more from a reputed publisher.

Only Book Required!

If you're looking to Pass the Foundation ISTQB test, well look no further! Don't study online, Just study from this book, and you will easily pass! :) I had very less time to study, because It was tough to be working in the office, helping out at home, being with your loved ones. In the end I could only study chapters 1 to 4. 5 and 6 were left out. 5 is important. Anyways I still managed to get 33/40 with ease. Also my paper finished 30 mins before. Tips: Study chapters 1,2,4 & 5 thoroughly!

Best book for ISTQB Certification

Flipkart is very good in delivery. They deliver the book in 2 days from the day i placed the order. The book is best for those who want to gain knowledge in software testing and also this book is the available book for the preparation of ISTQB Certification. I read this book for 10 days and then i gave the certification exam. I was able to get a certificate in first attempt only.
I strongly reccomend this book for those who want to be a certified software tester.

Must have for ISTQB Exam

I joined a software testing course few months back. Though I got the overview of how testing is done, I didn't understand the methods which are used(or could be used) quite well.

This book provides everything you need to clear the exam.

I cleared my exam in first attempt using this book.
