Please enter your email: 1. What is a potential risk in using tools to support testing? The tool will repeat exactly the same thing it did the previous time Unrealistic expectations, expecting the tool to do too much The tool may find defects that aren’t there Insufficient reliance on the tool, i.e. still doing manual testing when a test execution tool has been purchased 2.

Consider the following list of either product or project risks:I. An incorrect calculation of fees might short-change the organization.II. A vendor might fail to deliver a system component on time.III. A defect might allow hackers to gain administrative privileges.IV. A skills gap might occur in a new technology used in the system.V. A defect-prioritization process might overload the development team.Which of the following statements is true? I is primarily a product risk and II, III, IV and V are primarily project risks. Ill and V are primarily product risks, while I, II and IV are primarily project risks. I and III are primarily product risks, while II, IV and V are primarily project risks. II and V are primarily product risks and I, III and V are primarily project risks. 11. According to the ISTQB Glossary, what is a test level? One or more test design specification documents An ISTQB certification A test type A group of test activities that are organized together 12. What are the potential benefits from using tools in general to support testing? Greater quality of code, reduction in paperwork, fewer objections to the tests Greater repeatability of tests, reduction in repetitive work, objective assessment Greater quality of code, reduction in the number of testers needed, better objectives for testing Greater responsiveness of users, reduction of tests run, objectives not necessary 13. According to the ISTQB Glossary, what do we mean when we call someone a test manager? A test manager manages a collection of test leaders A test manager is the leader of a test team or teams A test manager reports to a test leader A test manager gets paid more than a test leader 14. According to the ISTQB Glossary, what do we call a document that describes any event that occurred during testing which requires further investigation? An incident report A test summary report A bug report A defect report 15. A product risk analysis is performed during the planning stage of the test process.During the execution stage of the test process, the test manager directs the testers to classify each defect report by the known product risk it relates to (or to ‘other’). Once a week, the test manager runs a report that shows the percentage of defects related to each known product risk and to unknown risks.What is one possible use of such a report? To identify new risks to system quality To measure exploratory testing To check risk coverage by tests To locate defect clusters in product subsystems 16. Which of the following factors is an influence on the test effort involved in most projects? The departure of the test manager during the project Geographical separation of tester and programmers Unexpected long-term illness by a member of the project team The quality of the information used to develop the tests 17. Which of the following are benefits and which are risks of using tools to support testing?1. Over-reliance on the tool2. Greater consistency and repeatability3. Objective assessment4. Unrealistic expectations5. Underestimating the effort required to maintain the test assets generated by the tool6. Ease of access to information about tests or testing7. Repetitive work is reduced Benefits: 2, 3, 5 and 6. Risks: 1, 4 and 7 Benefits: 3, 4, 6 and 7. Risks: 1, 2 and 5 Benefits: 2, 3, 6 and 7. Risks: 1, 4 and 5 Benefits: 1, 2, 3 and 7, Risks: 4, 5 and 6 18. Which of the following could be used to assess the coverage achieved for structure-based (white-box) test techniques?V Decision outcomes exercisedW Partitions exercisedX Boundaries exercisedY Conditions or multiple conditions exercisedZ Statements exercised V, Y or Z V, W or Y W, X or Z W, X or Y 19. Which of the following is among the typical tasks of a test leader? Gather and report test progress metrics Keep tests and test coverage hidden from programmers Handle all test automation duties Develop system requirements, design specifications and usage models 20. Why is independent testing important? Independent testing is usually cheaper than testing your own work Independent testers are dispassionate about whether the project succeeds or fails Independent testers should determine the processes and methodologies used Independent testing is more effective at finding defects 21. Consider the following types of tools:V. Test management toolsW. Static analysis toolsX. Modelling toolsY. Dynamic analysis toolsZ. Performance testing toolsWhich of the following of these tools is most likely to be used by developers? V, Y and Z V, W and Z W, X and Y X, Y and Z 22. Consider the following statements about regression tests:I. They may usefully be automated if they are well designed.II. They are the same as confirmation tests (re-tests).III. They are a way to reduce the risk of a change having an adverse affect elsewhere in the system.IV. They are only effective if automated.Which pair of statements is true? II and III I and II I and III II and IV 23. During test execution, the test manager describes the following situation to the project team:“90% of the test cases have been run. 20% of the test cases have identified defects. 127 defects have been found. 112 defects have been fixed and have passed confirmation testing. Of the remaining 15 defects, project management has decided that they do not need to be fixed prior to release.”Which of the following is the most reasonable interpretation of this test status report? The system is now ready for release with no further testing or development effort The programmers should focus their attention on fixing the remaining known defects prior to release The remaining 15 defects should be confirmation tested prior to release The remaining 10% of test cases should be run prior to release 24. You are working as a tester on a project to develop a point-of-sales system for grocery stores and other similar retail outlets.Which of the following is a product risk for such a project?
