ASTQB's "Test the Tester"

How much do you know about different software testing topics? Our "Test the Tester" quizzes will help you gauge your knowledge and give you confidence that you can study and pass your ISTQB exam.

The most recent quiz had the question, "Is a testing schedule required for a Test Manager to provide efficient test control?" The answer was (1), "Yes." Learn more about ISTQB Advanced Test Manager.

Which of these are critical for testers to do?

  1. Make sure that requirements are clear
  2. Make sure requirements are understood by all stakeholders
  3. Work closely with business analysts
  4. All of the above
