Prepare Successfully for Your ISTQB Foundation Level Exam from ASTQB
The ISTQB Foundation Level Exam (also called CTFL) is the first ISTQB exam you need to take because it is a prerequisite for all other ISTQB certification exams. Employers value this certification, so it is important you prepare properly for it.

Take our free practice exams – After studying the syllabus, take the practice exams. When you are done, study based on the results, and then take them again. This will prepare you for the general format of our exams and help you identify topics that need extra study time.
Register and schedule your exam early – Once you feel fairly well prepared for your exam, go ahead and schedule it. We highly suggest that you schedule your exam well in advance. Why? Because it will give you a date to work towards to be ready for the exam. When you register in advance, you can also download and install the software well before your exam day if you are taking it online at home or at work. Preparing for the exam early will help your focus on the exam day.
Study the sample exams – but not just the sample exams: The free ISTQB sample exams are useful but don’t rely on them completely. Just because you know those ISTQB sample exam answers doesn’t mean that you know the answers to the exact questions on the exams. Again, study the syllabus and glossary.
