Functional Testing: ISTQB Advanced
Course Outline
General Description
Adequate test designs and specifications are the key to precise test cases and an efficient

and cost effective testing process. You can reduce time pressure on your testing
department if you are familiar with a variety of different methods from which you can
quickly and reliably identify the most appropriate one for your current testing task.

This training course presents a comprehensive palette of methods and techniques for

deriving and specifying software tests at the black box level. It gives attendees hands-
on experience with successfully selecting and applying techniques for test case
derivation, such as equivalence partitioning, classification tree method, boundary value
analysis and state transition testing. We\u2019ll also look at supplementary techniques such

as exploratory testing and random testing.

For quick and creative testing tasks we\u2019ll cover the subject of reviews. Reviews are an uncomplicated, proven and rapid technique for the effective testing and checking of design documents, source codes and other substantial project documents. No other

quality assurance technique allows faults to be recognized and corrected so simply yet

successfully. We\u2019ll look at review techniques for testing specifications, source code, manuals and other documents, and will see how a review culture can be established within the project as a permanent accompaniment to the process. The techniques

presented are oriented towards the \u201cIEEE Standard for Software Reviews\u201d (IEEE Std.
1028-1997).
This seminar is the ideal preparation for the Functional Tester examination \u2013 part of the

\u201cISTQB Certified Tester Advanced Level\u201d certification. In preparation for the exam, participants will learn the subject matter behind the test standard and deepen their understanding by working through case studies and exercises. In group exercises,

typical review situations are played out and analyzed. We can arrange for the advanced
exam to be offered at your site at the end of the seminar.
