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!

U Can Clear the Exam...!!

I've cleared the exam in first attempt by reading the 2nd Editon . My suggestion is one should understand the concepts clearly and try solving all the sample questions given after every chapter including Mock Paper given at the last.
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 (...

Best Book for ISTQB Foundation Level

I bought this book just 2 weeks before the exam. I did not have enough time to mug up all the chapters thoroughly. I just went through the concepts line by line. I left out chapter 5 as it was very lengthy. This book is the best for passing the exam. If one reads this book then he/she is surely to pass the exam. I scored 35 out of 40. Its possible to score even 40 if this book is read thoroughly. A Must Buy for all Testers. Asset for lifetime and to pass ISTQB with flying colours!!! :)

Best Book for ISTQB Foundation level

Recently I cleared this ISTQB Foundation level certification.
I just read this book to clear my exam. I didn't use any other book or material.
I suggest, this book alone is more than enough to clear the exam.
But keep it in mind that read the book completely at least twice and understand all the concepts well...All The Best.

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 th...
