I really enjoyed taking the QA Tutor course, the lessons are helpful across the board. I have been doing QA testing for over five years, all for the same company, and learned many new tips and tricks. One of my developers saw the book on my desk and told me how great it was that our team was learning the SDLC and how he knows that QA is typically the first thing to be overlooked. Thank you for such a great course, I can attest that even for someone who is not just starting out and not in a start-up, this is valuable info!

Often QA professionals fall into the position of testing without formal training. It’s hard to find a legitimate certificate training without it being tuned into sales pitch. With this being the case, my team lead made it her personal mission to support our team with finding a certification program that would truly enhance our testing skills. I must say that QA Tutor was the PERFECT fit. The organization, resources, materials and support offered by QATutor was the perfect way for our team to take this self-paced program and meet our needs. Thank you, Roman Savin, for making this material so easy to follow and implement into our process. It has definitely increased the quality of our work and processes!
I hope this is helpful.

My QA team LOVED your course! A year later they still talk about things they have learned and able to apply to their work. You have been awesome to work with as well. It has been an great experience. Thank you!

QA TUTOR textbook is a complete guide to tester’s career. It is full of detailed examples, comparisons with life situations written to make it easier to understand and memorize necessary materials. The website itself has all the information the book does plus quizzes and summaries that I’ve found helpful when preparing to the final exam. Also, there is a portal for students where you may practice your skills and complete tasks provided on the website, which really made things a lot more clear. The exam is pretty complex and tests your knowledge very well, but also very much doable if you really learn and understand what you’re reading. I recommend the course to anyone who’d like to get their foot in the door of QA testing career.

I have been really enjoying this course. I got rich and deep knowledge that can help me to build my career in IT. Everything was written in very applicable and practical way. I received a job offer right after I got certified as entry-level QA engineer, so my dream is coming true step by step. I`m thankful to Roman Savenkov for this course and for being my teacher for that period of time with a prompt feedback and help. Thank you so much!!!

Dear Roman!I like your books so much! I used to read your book “Testing dot com”, before every interview I had, but now I have QATUTOR course that reminds me about things that I might forget. I’ve just gotten my certificate 🙂 Thank you for your book and course It helps a lot in interviews and usual testers life! Actually, I am not a Junior tester, but I need to find a job in English and for me, your course is a great helper for learning specific vocabulary and new words. I’ll start my job searching in the nearest time.
I’ve gotten a textbook from you, it is amazing 🙂
Kind regards, Sveta

Dear Roman, thank you. It was an amazing course and I just want to let you know that I recommended this course to my girlfriend and she’s now working as a QA for over 2 years. That was great to go through this whole course again, after few years. Keep up doing good job!

I read half of Roman’s book and sent my resume for Junior Tester position. Got employed right away. All is good. I do have some technical background.

Hi everyone! It really works! I could not wait and I put my brand new QA certificate from Roman in my resume the same night I had the exam. NEXT day by noon I had two invitations from different companies to do their testing tasks – to test me! After a-half-of-a-year-silence. I did them with a pleasure, in accordance with the best practices of Roman’s courses and with help of his “download” materials. It was easy and funny. And the companies liked it too! So now I am a Jr. QA engineer of one of them. And what is nice – people in the QA department know about Roman and his courses, they have his book and materials. Maybe that is why they took me:). Of course the work is not easy as the test tasks but it is pretty well paid and very rewarding. I think Roman’s school is very fast, interesting, simple but complete, nicely done, funny and absolutely inexpensive way to a new career even if you did not know anything about QA before. So good luck and do not hesitate!

I read ‘How to Become a Software Tester ‘ back in 2011 when I was fresh US immigrant looking for what to do in this land of the free and the home of the brave. Right after reading the book it became clear to me that it’s exactly what I was looking for. Written in really easy manner and full of practical knowledge book cover everything one need to know to become manual QA tester. It helped me to get my first 3 moth Internship with Bay Area company and even after internship, when I was preparing for my first job interview, I reread it to refresh my knowledge and kind of tune up my brain into proper mode. And it worked I got the job. Now I’m well versed manual QA tester with 5 years of experience with major US bank. Also, what is important, it’s a very affordable yet effective way to get true knowledge since book cost is a little fraction comparing to alternatives on the market. I will always be grateful to Roman for his work, it really helped me in life!

QAtutor is one of those “Happy User’s stories” for me. I am really happy to share it.
This course introduced me to all modern testing techniques and polished my existing skills. You do not have to know anything about QA. Just relax and enjoy. It’s an excellent start to change something in your life and begin your carrier as a QA person. It gets you to a different level, different surroundings.
Roman is an excellent mentor. During the course he was super-responsive and helpful. He patiently explained to me all my mistakes and made my resume catchy. No kidding. It wasn’t me who found a job. The Job found me. Someone from the company contacted me when they saw my resume online.
I’m 100% satisfied with the content of the course and highly recommend it to everyone who wants to start carrier in IT.

I’m writing this email to thank you, Roman! First of all for your attitude. I’ve been doing a lot of reading on QA including your site qatutor.com and I’m really impressed how kind you are to your students. Thanks to you I realized what I want to do in my life! You can be sure that you changed a life of a stranger!
Alexey U., Russia
Dear Roman, your course gave my confidence that everything will be OK. I’ve used your tactics of passive and active job search and went to all interviews. That’s how I got interview experience! Your advice about sending resume to the software companies that don’t publish vacancies gave me my golden chance. I was invited for interview, I’ve passed it and got a job.
Lena S., Russia
Your course has been so helpful to me and has exposed me to a lot of things like having a start up.
Elisha T., Nigeria
Just want to thank you. Your material is so well delivered, so well organized, so cleverly put together that had I not had already this passion for testing in me I would have gotten passionate about QA just from reading your course.
Yana Y., USA
This is an excellent overview of how to do professional software Quality Assurance. The text is very detailed with many examples and exercises covering both the philosophy and specific tactics of testing. There’s even a section on how to find a job in the industry that’s, despite my general distaste for most how to land a job advice, is actually quite charming and effective. I’ve hired many QA engineers, and can vouch for the effectiveness of much of the material here…If you’re serious about becoming a software tester, I can’t think of a better way to start.
