Where can I find ISTQB mock exams with reliable answers?

I have heard that there are a lot of sites with mock exams but they told me to be careful because some of their answers are not correct.

    It depends what you mean by reliable ;-) Reliable to pass exam or reliable to implement in practice.

  • I've read "Foundations of Software Testing: ISTQB Certification" by Dorothy Graham et al. For each chapter of Syllabus it has sample example questions, together with correct answers and reference to the paragraph explaining why it is correct.
  • On ISTQB site there is is also a free sample of exam questions and correct answers but without explanation why it is correct.

There are tons of Web sites with obviously incorrect answers. What I did here was that every time I did not agree with an answer I consulted it with Syllabus, Glossary or with colleagues during exam preparation training we had. We often did not agree with both unofficial and official (coming from ISTQB) sources but discussing and criticizing those sources taught me more than would learning the answers by heart.


Don't know how reliable they are, but some of my colleagues recommend this site which they used before the exam (and they did all pass).

I haven't tried it myself though.

  • Some of the questions there are not relevant to Foundation Level and some of the answers are bit vague. So, please be careful when you use that site Commented Dec 12, 2016 at 11:14

NOTE : You will have to login to access the quizzes


Some good practice paper you will find here on istqbexamcertification.

Main thing is to concentrate on syllabus given by ISTQB.

As per my experience only some time questions come from practice paper in real exam. Paper is always based in ISTQB syllabus. So read , understand and remember each and every line of it.


You have to search for the course, but the tests are given in very well manner.


I'm not sure if this is the kind of thing you are looking for, but here's one place.
