The Strategy for Preparing for CSTE Examination
(Information shared in this document is gathered from my experience in Sept 2002 CSTE exam. Theinformation could change from time to time. Pls. Visit www.softwarecertifications.comfor up-to-date information)
Applying for CSTE:
Your application must reach to QAI US 60 days before the exam date. Do not send your applicationto QAI India office but it should go to
Software Certifications,7575, Dr. Phillips Blvd.,Suit 350, Orlando,FL 32819-7273, USA.Fax No: 407-363-1112
Exam fee is 250 USD and you can pay by credit card by mentioning your number in the applicationform.
Exam Pattern:
Exam has two sections and total exam duration is 270 min.
Each section has 1 objective and 1 subjective paper.
Objective paper has 50 questions and time limit is 45 min. You may be asked to match the pairs also.
Subjective paper may have 6 to 10 questions and time limit is 75 min.
10 min, break after each paper. Total duration is (45 X 2 + 75 X 2 + 10 X 3 = 270 min)
Min. passing is 75 marks in each paper.
You have to write the exam using HB pencil only.
About the Questions:
Almost all objective type questions you can find from the old CBOK study guide. So itimportant that you read the CBOK properly at least thrice before the exam.
In the subjective paper, mostly the questions are open ended. There is no right or wronganswer. They are interested in knowing how you deal with the problem or a situation. Your ability to implement a workable solution is the key to get thru those questions. You aresupposed to answer in brief using bulleted points. DO NOT WRITE ESSAYS and LONGSENTENCES. DO NOT WRITE ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE PAPER UNLESSOTHERIWISE TOLD. Candidates having 2/3 years of experience in software QA / Testingwill find this section easy since questions are mostly day-to-day activities. But above allMAKE SURE YOU ATTEMPT ALL QUESTIONS.
