I had a really bad experience of negligence of unit testing once. I was testing this web based project which was extremely time critical(I had only like 10 days to test like 7 months of development), and after 2 days of testing I could not see a single test pass. Everything I threw at the project failed to pass. It turned out that every single field in all ...

If I am a tester already involved in the same project, then I will find unit tests useful, in case they have ample evidence that they are run and executed concisely (description of expexted result and attached screenshots).

Put this as a call for your test initialization so that it will fire on all your tests, but the code for managing it will all be in a single place. Read from a property or config file the parameter to indicate "normal" and "cut out". I'm assuming that your "mid test" has a timer or something to ...

A basic list of some tools to be familiar with or at the very least understand what they are: SoapUI Selenium HP QC/HP ALM/MS TFS/MS Test Manager The next step would be SQL as this is a daily task in the QA roles. After learning at the very least the basics, utilize some of the open source software in ...

Manual Testing For the beginning it is very useful to know what kind of tests exists. So you can explore the ISTQB Glossary to discover them and testing terms in general. After that you could try to get involved in some open source projects. You could install and test them and contribute some bug tickets. Mozilla has a QA area. (Other companies / ...
