Good book for those who are looking for ISTQB FL

Neat explanation of all the concepts but this book alone won't help you to get certification as ISTQB is not a cake walk, this book can be used to get required initial confidence.

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!

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.

Coming to the Exam, I haven't found any single question from the sample questions and Online Mock papers.
But after a great practice in solving the questions and understanding the concepts I'm able to clear the exam.

Now I'm a Certified Software Test Engineer (CTFL).
