Way to become a good tester:

Remember these ten rules and I am sure you will definitely gain very good testing skill.

1. Test early and test often.
2. Integrate the application development and testing life cycles. You’ll get better results and you won’t have to mediate between two armed camps in your IT shop.
3. Formalize a testing methodology; you’ll test everything the same way and you’ll get uniform results.
4. Develop a comprehensive test plan; it forms the basis for the testing methodology.
5. Use both static and dynamic testing.
6. Define your expected results.
7. Understand the business reason behind the application. You’ll write a better application and better testing scripts.
8. Use multiple levels and types of testing (regression, systems, integration, stress, and load).
9. Review and inspect the work, it will lower costs.
10. Don’t let your programmers check their own work; they’ll miss their own errors.

Hi Ashwini,

I have Mentioned Software Testing Methodology as given below:

software testing methodology is applied in four distinct phases: unit testing, system testing, integration testing, and acceptance testing.

Unit Testing—The programmers conduct unit testing during the development phase. Programmers can test their specific functionality individually or with other units. However, unit testing is designed to test small pieces of functionality rather than the system as a whole. This allows the programmers to conduct the first round of testing to eliminate bugs before they reach the testing staff.

System Testing—The system is tested as a complete, integrated system. System testing first occurs in the development environment but eventually is conducted in the production environment. Dedicated testers, project managers, or other key project staff perform system testing. Functionality and performance testing are designed to catch bugs in the system, unexpected results, or other ways in which the system does not meet the stated requirements. The testers create detailed scenarios to test the strength and limits of the system, trying to break it if possible. Editorial reviews not only correct typographical and grammatical errors, but also improve the system’s overall usability by ensuring that on-screen language is clear and helpful to users. Accessibility reviews ensure that the system is accessible to users with disabilities.

Integration Testing—Incremental integration testing involves continuous testing of an application as new functionality is added. This requires that aspects of an application’s functionality be able to work separately before all parts of the application are completed. Full integration testing tests combined parts of an application to determine if they function together correctly.

Acceptance Testing—The software is assessed against the requirements defined in the system requirements document. The user or client conducts the testing in the production environment. Successful acceptance testing is required before submitting to the client for approval.
