    I'm voting to close as this is really a matter of opinion, particularly when talking about such controversial certifications like ISTQB.

  • This or similar question was asked many times. Asking it again shows no effort from OP. Jan 5 '16 at 13:57
  • One way to make this question more askable and answerable would be for OP to do some research about courses available/considered, and ask about them. But in current form, closing is the right thing to do, IMHO. Jan 5 '16 at 14:10

Although I have voted this to be closed, because this is a primarily opinion based question- best is a subjective term which is dependent on a person's perspective of best.

Instead of Testing courses, I can give you a good list of reading materials though- because this website is a store house of these kinda things.

Blogs to follow to further learning

How can I transition into getting into QA?

How to become a good QA employee

Suggested books to start on software testing

Another point : Before you post, please research a bit, because this question has been asked N times, with the same answer.
