Lecture 7 - Test Preps -> Quick Intro -> The Tester's Mental Attitude -> Intro To Special Skills In Bug Finding -> Black Box Testing Techniques -> When You Start To Implement Testing Techniques... -> Lecture Recap -> Questions & Exercises
1. Software is a shelter for bugs.
2. A lack of trust and a destructive attitude towards software are the foundation of an effective tester’s mentality.
3. A dirty list is about creativity and inspiration. A white list is about analysis.
4. Test Tables are an excellent way to present conditions and/or inputs in a structured way and combine them into scenarios.
5. A flowchart helps to present a process (e.g., a test scenario) in a visual way.
6. Amazing results are produced by combining different methods.
7. Risk analysis is the evaluation of data or expectations with the purpose of setting priorities.
8. An equivalent class is a set of inputs that are treated by the software the same way under certain conditions. In other words, under certain conditions, the software must apply the same logic to each element of the equivalent class. An equivalent class can consist of only one member.
9. Boundary testing checks certain points inside of equivalent classes for the purpose of detecting buggy parts of the code.
10. Testing techniques make up your toolbox. Use whatever you need from that box to find the best test scenarios. Creativity and practice are the keys here. Next ->
