    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!

    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.

    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 (...
