What is the MAIN benefit of designing tests early in the life cycle?
It helps prevent defects from being introduced into the code.
To identify defects in any software work product.
What is risk-based testing?
Risk-based testing is the term used for an approach to creating a test strategy that is based on prioritizing tests by risk. The basis of the approach is a detailed risk analysis and prioritizing of risks by risk level. Tests to address each risk are then specified, starting with the highest risk first.
Risk-based testing is used for testing systems for which the specification takes the form of rules or cause-effect combinations. In a decision table the inputs are listed in a column, with the outputs in the same column but below the inputs. The remainder of the table explores combinations of inputs to define the outputs produced.
What is the KEY difference between preventative and reactive approaches to testing?
Preventative tests are designed early; reactive tests are designed after the software has been produced.
It avoids author bias in defining effective tests.
What is the purpose of exit criteria?
The purpose of exit criteria is to define when a test level is completed.
The likelihood of an adverse event and the impact of the event determine the level of risk.
What determines the level of risk?
The likelihood of level of risk and the impact of the event determine the level of risk.
When is used Decision table testing?
Decision table testing is used for testing systems for which the specification takes the form of rules or cause-effect combinations. In a decision table the inputs are listed in a column, with the outputs in the same column but below the inputs. The remainder of the table explores combinations of inputs to define the outputs produced.
What is the MAIN objective when reviewing a software deliverable?

Designing the test environment set-up and identifying any required infrastructure and tools are a part of which phase
A. Test Implementation and execution
B. Test Analysis and Design
C. Evaluating the Exit Criteria and reporting
D. Test Closure Activities
Test Implementation and execution has which of the following major tasks?
i. Developing and prioritizing test cases, creating test data, writing test procedures and optionally preparing the test harnesses and writing automated test scripts.
ii. Creating the test suite from the test cases for efficient test execution.
iii. Verifying that the test environment has been set up correctly.
iv. Determining the exit criteria.
A Test Plan Outline contains which of the following:-
i. Test Items
ii. Test Scripts
