comment Will getting a Software Testing Certification benefit me in my career?
There's no age requirement and you can never have too much experience. Does your company provide promotions and salary increases with certifications? Have you asked them?

comment Exploratory Testing
Hi Ishan, exploratory testing is not a "type" of testing - it's not a technique it's an approach and those two differences are important.

Udacity's course covers some theory but it's more geared towards glass-box testing (which can be useful).

comment ISO standards implement in Software Quality assurance/testing
I've never used this - I'm only trying to help. You can create a template by using the information on the wikipedia page under quality model and then brainstorming ideas / characteristics. I'm not going to do the work for you. =)

comment What is the difference between Software Test Engineer, Test Automation Engineer and Software Developer in Test (SDET)?
I think this whole question depends on the context of the organization. Many companies might not even use these titles. Then what?

comment Fixes hard to verify because of poor quality bug reports
It depends on how you use your bug tracking system and it depends on the type of problem it is. If its an intermittent issue than yes you can file it as an issue as opposed to a bug. If the customer is reporting something that you can't understand / reproduce without more information you can wait to report that until you have enough evidence to support a conclusion that its a bug, issue, other.
