Some interesting Software testing interview questions

In this post I am going to answer some of the questions asked by one of the reader Srinivas M.

1. In an application currently in production, one module of code is being modified. Is it necessary to re-test the whole application or is it enough to just test functionality associated with that module?

Vijay: Well, the answer is both. You will have to test the functionality of that module as well as the other modules. But you can differentiate on the stress to be given on the module to be tested.

I think this scenario will explain the answer to your question well.

If Module A is modified, Module B is depending on module A, and Module C is a general module independent of module A.
So in this case you will test the module A in depth to all test cases. Then your next stress will be on module B. Wait now what about module C? You will have to test this module as well but may be with less stress because module C is not depend on module A but may be depend on module B.

Again if you are a white box tester you probably know which modules will get affected and which modules should be tested. But as a black box tester you will need to do regression testing as well.

2. What is the most challenging situation you had during testing?

Vijay: A good question! When I switched my job some years back I was being asked the same question.
Well a good answer to this question is depends on each ones experience. If you came across any such a situation and found any interesting Bug that was difficult to find out or analyzed any project risk accurately before occurring then this could be the answer to this question.

Keep in mind that when answering such a question, be realistic and don’t overstress the situation.

3. What are you going to do if there is no Functional Spec or any documents related to the system and developer who wrote the code does not work in the company anymore, but you have system and need to test?

Vijay: A typical situation in Indian companies! Right? Due to high attrition rate :(
In this case fist you will need to do the exploratory testing of the product. In this testing you will come to know the system and its basic workflow. In exploratory testing you can also find some ‘blocker’ bugs that cause system to be crash.

------------

If you are a white box tester then next step you can do is to see the different module code. By this you will know the test cases for different modules and relation of modules.

If you have any question please comment it below.

what is exploratory testing,blocker’ bugs?

#2 Vijay on 05.05.07 at 5:23 am

Exploratory Testing: Means you go on exploring each every feature of the product, as you are a new user and you don’t know anything about the product.

Blocker Bug: Means you can not proceed further unless and untill the bug is resolved.This is typically a application crash bug.

#3 Pradeep Soundararajan on 05.07.07 at 6:42 am

@Vijay,

Exploratory Testing is a simultaneous learning, test design and test execution – Cem Kaner

Isn’t that simple? Do you want to further simplify it?

It might be a good idea to open up than to defend!

#4 Amit on 05.09.07 at 6:02 am

Hi Vijay,
I find your answers very useful and understandable..its very important to explain properly to people who are new in testing..keep up the good work dude..

#5 madhu on 06.09.07 at 6:31 am

hi vijay,
i have some interview questions to u , can u answer to those questions

#6 madhu on 06.09.07 at 6:35 am

what type of testing process is going on at your company?

this is becoz i have skills in manual testing and automation testing

#7 madhu on 06.09.07 at 6:40 am

what are the key components in your company test plain documents?

#8 K.S.Priyaa on 06.20.07 at 2:37 am

hi,

ur informtions r usefull…

can u explain me abt reports in manual testing?

#9 vijay on 06.20.07 at 7:58 am

@-K.S priya
Can you tell me the specific report as there are vast reports and not possible to include all.

#10 Bhavana on 06.20.07 at 10:42 am

i would like to know some examples regarding functional testcases. in interview they are giving some scenario and asking to tell testcases regarding that. pls help me

#11 kala on 08.17.07 at 10:57 am

hi…
can u give me information about “Test case preparation” and “VB Script”.
Thank u.

#12 Vijay on 08.20.07 at 5:53 am

@ Bhavana When you get a question to tell or write the test cases on any specified scenario then first do one thing,
Break the given scenario in some parts like if you have given a simple web page to test then what test cases will you write? In this scenario divide the testing work in some major parts like functional checking, UI checking, DB, Security, Load, stress testing. when you will divide given application in simple testable parts then its very easy to write the test cases for individual parts and you will not miss any important functionality to test.

@ – Kala I have written a post on how to write effective test cases here

#13 amol on 08.20.07 at 11:19 am

#21 Suvrajit Banerjee on 09.24.07 at 10:29 am

Can anybody pls. refer any sample template(s) of “Software Requirement Specification (SRS)”

#22 Vijay on 09.28.07 at 9:34 am

@ Amol –
Test strategy is included in test plan. Test plan is nothing but integration of all test strategies. Test strategy tells what you want to test. How you are going to execute your test cases is also addressed in test strategy. So basically test strategy is a framework and boundaries of your test implementation.

Test methodologies- You have build test strategy then how you are going to accomplish that? This is test methodology, The methods, procedures some techniques to accomplish particular task in short all operational procedures that need to be implemented are documented in test methodologies.

Test approach is the strategy you use to address the issues during the execution of test strategy. Testing approach impact more on test plan. Testing approach can be decided from top down, bottom up and isolation.

@ Pankaj D
Test scenario is combination of multiple test cases under one business process task. Test scenario defines which test cases should be executed, when should execute these test cases. This set of test cases under one scenario generally created to accomplish particular module testing.
Use cases are used to capture the functional requirements of any application to be build. Use cases defines the relation between application and each entity that is going to interact with the application. UML language is used to create these use cases.
Test scenario is part of use cases. You can create multiple test scenarios from single use case. Basically each path of use case can be expanded separately as test scenario.

@ pradeep, uday kumar and Pragya
You can find the manual and automation testing interview questions time to time in my post. Still I will write separate post as resource for testing interview questions.

@ Suvrajit Banerjee
You can download sample SRS template from link:
http://www.processimpact.com/process_assets/srs_template.doc

pz provide me some gud solution..

#31 Ravi kumar on 10.16.07 at 7:58 am

@ vijay

plz explain the testing process in real time scenarios, how the process follow (real time)

#32 Vijay on 10.16.07 at 12:15 pm

@ prasana
Use cases are the UML diagrams build and used to write the test cases. Using use cases you can write test cases more effectively without duplication, better test coverage and for easy regression testing.

@Ragul
You can refer bug life cycle at:
http://www.softwaretestinghelp.com/bug-life-cycle/
I will cover STLC in coming posts.

@Pragya
Interviewer can ask you to explain what you did in all the mentioned projects?
What was the project about?
What was your roll?
For Which testing type you were responsible?
Have you wrote test cases?
If you did automation then How you performed automation testing on those projects?
Some technical background of the project related terms..
Information about the challenging bugs you found.
These are some of the basic questions can be asked.

@ Durga
Business requirements are requirements specified by the client while developing the projects. You need to develop project based on these business requirements. E.g what should be the minimum value in $ advertiser can bid for his listing to be shown in search engine results? This is the client business requirement and the UI, functionality to implement this requirement are the General requirements.

@ yadav and pragati:
First answer these questions before applying for any position:
Are you applying for right position like openings having freshers requirements? Or matching your skill set?
Have you read the opening details correctly before applying?
Is there any mistake in your resume? Is it reflecting the skills required by the employer?
So consider these simple but effective points before applying for next testing job opening.
You will definitely get the call. Don’t get frustrated. Don’t give up.

@Ravi kumar

#62 Farah on 09.11.08 at 12:46 pm

@ Rajesh,
You did testing course and join n organization, you will be appointed as Software Tester. After 3 to 6 months or a year as per companies policies. when you will be promoted, you will become a Test Lead. and then Test Manager
Key Responsibilities of tester is to test the application, they work under test leads. but for any help they can approach test manager.
Test Lead works under Test Managers, they are fully responsible for the project.
Test Manager manages the whole project set the time line for completion of the project etc.

Hi Vijay,
My question is related to Agile testing.
who will b the responsible for Agile testing? What it includes? And how i co-relate this Agile testing with Testing Life Cycle?
If you provide me help line that would be greatful. :)

Hi,

These questions are very useful.
I have one query about Test case formats, do you have updated format for writing the test cases for Black box testing and also for White Box testing. plz. send it to my E-Mail ID: mirzalinks@gmail.com

#68 Mahendra on 12.22.08 at 7:27 pm

Vijay stated, “A typical situation in Indian companies!”

Vijay, What right do you have to make fun of Indian companies. They are delivering on their promises and that’s the only reason why they are in existence.

Also, it absolutely does not make sense to compare (putting them down) Indian companies with western companies. Reason being there is a great difference in resources, culture and work environment.

Shame on you vijay.

#69 kailash on 01.08.09 at 6:43 am

Hey Vijay
For the Q?3. when you don’t have any Spec. and you have to perform testing.
Well i always face this problem, so according to me first you have to divide the application in modules and step by step test each one then integrate them as whole and test.
The more you test you will better understand the projects and follow some standard rules while testing a unknown projects.
In agile development this problem is always occurs.
The more you test or browse the application you will know more about it and about its requirement, behavior at the same time you will more bugs.
This is my opinion so let me know is it correct.?

Thanks
Kailash

#72 Naina on 04.09.09 at 11:49 am

Hi Vijay,

I am in testing services.Recently i went through an interview and was asked below questions, would you please explain me the answers:

1. Work distribution methodology. Will it be possible to follow work distibution methodology in a scenario where testing requirement comes haphazardly and we need to complete our job in a very limited time period.

2. What could be the reason of getting bugs in production when there was not bug in QA,where test pre-setup(like connectivity), test data, test cases and tester all are same?

3. How we can tackle a situation where a 2 members team is asked to complete a job within next eod and suddenly one of the member could not come for office for some reason.

Thanks,
Naina

HOW MANY TESTCASES WE WILL WRITE PER DAY IN REALTIME?

#97 Vamsi Prakash on 05.24.10 at 6:29 am

@ Tamil

Main criteria will be to total coverage of the ‘feature’ under test.
‘How many’ depends on schedule and your exposure on the feature.

If you still want the number, usually i write 70 to 100 per day.

Thanks..

#120 sirisha on 01.04.11 at 8:23 am

Hi Vijay,

I am attending interviews for lead position. There are few questions asked by the interviewer. Could you please answer the below questions:

1. How will you manage a team member who is more experienced than yours and what challenges will you face? ( that guy might be technically sound).
2. What are the challenges faced with the 1+ years experience team.
3. How many defects is acceptable for a project. Is there any goal for no. of defects.
4. How will you ensure that all the requirements have been covered during the test cases review
I answered as RTM, but interviewer expected more.
5. When there is a new enhancement, what kind of test cases will you write and how will you ensure that everything is covered during the review
6. During the test case review, what are the main important things will you check
7. If there are more number of production defects, how will you tackle the team as a lead (which should not reflect again in the next project)

It would be very greatful if you provide answers to the above as the interviewer was not happy with my answers

what is the difference between sanity testing and smoke testing

#155 vaneet on 09.14.11 at 6:23 am

Sushama….

Sanity Testing:-Tester conducts the Sanity test to ensure the stability of the application build.Tester finds weather the application build is stable for complete application or not.

Smoke Testing:-It covers the major functionality of the application without bothering with finer details.

the key challenges in software testing are legacy system, heterogeneity, delivery.
legacy system:which says about older versions.
heterogeneity:which says about current version.
delivery: which says about new release version.

Hi,
any body tell me , the real time answers for this question, asked frequently in interviews
What is the most difficult problem you’ve found during testing

#236 Archana on 03.08.13 at 11:06 am

@Uma: this actually depends on yr experience also. if u r a fresher or at Jr. level u can say that regression testing phase was challenging as it involved many modules to be tested.
try to say that it was challenging than difficulty as it may show u with confidence to the interviewer

#248 Chandni on 07.11.13 at 11:37 am

Hi vijay,

Can you tell me definition for test scenario??

#249 harish on 07.15.13 at 4:22 pm

@ ANU

Both function and perform similarly, but still differ in following ways.

Web application:

a) We can’t include c# and vb page in single web application.
b) We can set up dependencies between multiple projects.
c) Can not edit individual files after deployment without recompiling.
d) Right choice for enterprise environments where multiple developers work unitedly for creating,testing and deployment.

Web site:

a) Can mix vb and c# page in single website.
b) Can not establish dependencies.
c) Edit individual files after deployment.
d) Right choice when one developer will responsible for creating and managing entire website.

@ Chandni
Test Scenario is brief description of what need to be done, Based on Test scenario we derive Test cases.

#250 swetha on 07.17.13 at 7:59 am

#251 Harish on 07.17.13 at 10:45 am

#254 JS on 08.20.13 at 4:18 pm

@BIPIN, are you serious telling Vijay to speed up answering the questions? Most of these question are poorly asked and many can be looked up on the internet for themselves. How is he supposed to tell you what interview questions will be expected for example, for someone with 1 year experience? This is unpredictable and varies by project or company. I have 12 years QA experience and never seem to know what to expect on an interview, the key is to know software testing and it is variable.

#255 padma on 08.28.13 at 7:17 pm

when testers not having proper documents for preparing test scenarios and cases then testers can go for Exploratory testing that means by using screen shots provided by developers testers can go for testing

#256 Munni on 08.31.13 at 7:19 am

1. What exact work you do in your office as a tester?
2. After 5 years what you want to be? QA Lead? Why not something else?

Hi Vijay,

I was just going through ur posts, its quite useful. I work as a DWH and BI report tester in a software company with 4 years of experience in the same.

I wanted to know can we automate BI reports through QTP? Please let me know if not QTP what is best to automate BI reports.

Please do let me know if doing QTP course would serve my purpose.

I have always been aware of QTP used to automate some Online transactions like websites and other stuff rather than WEBI reports.

Thanks, in advance.

#273 Pramod on 03.25.14 at 4:32 am

Hello All

It seems like Vijay has disappeared :) or vanished into thin air…..(just pun intended)

Vijay initially has done an awesome job, but sooner or later he probably got busy in work or forgot about this blog. Anyways many thanks for Vijay.

I have a request to all people who are posting in blogs like this. First of all this page is solely intended to discuss Software Testing interview questions. Please refrain from posting your resumes and educational background details. It consumes page space and a potential information seeker has to scroll through yards of junk to find what he or she needs here. Many people here are using abbreviations. Agree that you know the term, but there are many beginners and even experienced people who may not be familiar with the abbreviations. For example Hema in her post mentioned terms like DWH and BI…..please elaborate. It helps others.

Another important thing is language. Though I found so many BTechs and MTechs in this blog posting their resumes and asking questions, most of their language is weak. If you are not able to communicate properly, then you are a failure especially if you are a tester or wanna be tester. Communication is key in testing. If you are not able to elaborate a bug scenario in words, then the whole point is not done. You need to be very strong in communication skills. Many of you lack that. Please do not use U for you, thr for there, wt for what etc. Using such chat language in a professional or technical conversation is considered as negligence and unprofessional. If you dont change your habit now, you are in for larger trouble later.

To become a good tester, you need to be

Good at language
A fast learner
Very alert
Good imagination
Strong writing skills

Those are primary things.

#274 Vijay on 03.25.14 at 1:44 pm

@ Pramod
I’ve not gone anywhere :) I am here to help everyone and just got little busier to respond to each and every comment. I don’t post any article without a detailed review. We now try to provide 100% value in each of our articles. Rest assured that all of our latest post will have answers to your questions.

#275 saraswathi on 03.29.14 at 1:09 pm

In Exploratory testing how will you find is bug? is there any chance we will misunderstand feature as a bug?

#276 srikanth on 03.30.14 at 12:29 pm

Hi Vijay,

what does ‘Test Strategy’ mean? is it
a set of ‘Test Plan’, ‘Creating Test Cases’ ‘Test Execution’ and ‘Defect Reporting’.

Please let me know if i am wrong.

#277 Abhishek S on 04.01.14 at 11:12 am

can we say test strategy is part of test plan ?
