I recently asked this question on a less active exchange and as a result didn't get the range of opinions I was after so am repeating it here.
I've been working as a tester for the last 6 months (in the UK) and I have just been asked by my employer to work towards the ISEB/ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Level Book. My main source material is the following book Click to check book.
I was hoping that I could get some input from people who have completed this certification in the past. Do you have any sage advice that I should stick to? Or any best practices I should adopt while learning the material?
I realize that this certification is unlikely to make me a better tester but it is something the company wants our testers to pursue, so in essence I would appreciate opinions on how to pass the test as quickly as possible.
