  3. Hi Abeer,
    It was all good about Testing.
    I need to know about Test scripts, when they are need to be written and how we can write.

  4. 1.What different tools can be used to report a bug.
    2.Can you plz explain Cause Effect Graphing, Boundary Valuse Analysis, Error Guessing with expamples.

  5. Dear Anand,

    I think these questions are also related to Web Application Testing because testing the web application you must know about the SDLC and functions of web.

    Thanks,
    Mayank

  6. hi manual testing there are no steps
    Just click on each function / button and see if it matches with the story board given by the developers/ client . The story board is the expected result as per the Clients requirements

  7. what types of documents would you need for QA,QCand testing?
    what is the purpose of the testing?
    how do you scope,organise,and execute a test project?
    define quality?
    how do you determine what to test?
    how do you perform regression testing?
    describe the basic elements yoy put ina defect report?
    What is the exact difference between integration and system testing?
    When should testing start in a project?
