At Syed Adil,

Hi Syed,

It is not mandatory to know a programming language to take up a job in testing. But still basics of any language would be an advantage…

There are many testers who do not know any language and find it difficult to learn automation and scripting tools. some testers who have atleast some basic knowledge of any language can easily grasp the new scripting tools.

So, finally it’s upto u. If u have time and interested, go for the languages or else learn on the job.

@ Syed Adil – I am very much agree with Ajay. Try for at least one scripting language. This will help to learn other scripting languages very easily and quickly.

@ sricharan – I will try to include some QTP question also in my coming posts. I am currently in learning phase of QTP. So this would probably a learner to learner session.

@ lavanya – This depends on your expertise. Go for any tool you feel you are comfortable in and have hands-on experience.

@ Kiran Kumar – All readers please keep in mind Software testing institute is not your final destination. Select the institute if you are not able to prepare by your own or having some difficulties in starting with software testing. You can select any institute which is focusing on manual as well as software automation. Get some info about institute from your area before joining it. Finally focus on home study during your course period.

#9 krishana

i am graduate in science(pcb) and having post graduate diploma in business management. after doing 3 years job in sales field i am not finding job satisfaction here.can i shift to it industry as software black box tester.non technical background candidates can debut in this field.which companies not prefer non technical background candidates.
new delhi

#10 Vijay

@sricharan – Bug and defect are normally used as synonyms of each other. Client don’t want to differentiate in between bug, defect, error, fault etc terms. Client is more concerned about whatever is causing the failure in their system.
Some standard definitions of these terms can be:
Bug: Is what used to refer deviation from expected result.
Defect: The problem in code leading to program failure.
You should know the use of above terms from your industry or where you work.

@ krishana : You are correct that companies will not prefer non technical background candidates industry. To be suitable for any post you should have that much experience, educational background and interest in that field. In your case I suggest find out the cause that you lost interest in sales field and why you are not satisfied with your current job before thinking of any new career.

#43 Umair Mansoor

Therz a Microst certified Software Quality Assurance paper Online.
Do This!
It will be benificial for you if you are not interested in development as its need much brain :p Lolzz kidding..
Well SQA / SQE / Testing is a nice field only if you know how to track the bug and development criterias Manual and automated testing includes total ERP maintaining UML Use case designing.. U should be prepared first for the interview as much u will talk infront of person taking your interview he will be impressed because the developer is not in concerned with SQA much he dont have much knowledge regarding SQA SQE so he will accept what ever you will speak continously.. But not to cross the limit that you start talking about testing Chemical reactions Lolzz :)
Dont mind i m habbitual of talking ridiculously but informatic.
Thank You.
