Tester interview questions and answers are completely based on the interview I and my friends attended during last years of working experience as Quality Assurance Testers. These SQA questions and scenarios are based only on real experience and were asked during actual QA interviews. Therefore, QA Tester who is looking for a Quality Assurance job will greatly benefit from this. If you are the first time job seeker as a QA Tester, then it can help you even better. Finally, if you are plant to attend an interview, you have to know these questions and answers by heart and must be very smooth in answering these questions. Practice in front of the friends or just a mirror, speak loud and clear. Most of the time, when you study the questions, you feel fine and feel relaxed, but the reality is, at the time of the actual interview, even though you feel you have the knowledge, cannot express it well. It may sound a little rough, but this is everyone’s hard experience. When you come out the interview door, you are deeply regretted. If you cannot remember these by heart, believe me, it may not work. Readers are welcome to post own questions and answers to the following SQA interview questions.

Best Agile books: Top Recommended

There are evidently a lot of high quality Agile books out there that could be recommended. I did my best to choose the top Agile books for testers that I hope could be useful for both those already doing Agile software testing and those testers who are curious about Agile methodology but remain skeptical. The top list includes Agile books for all levels of knowledge, from general introductions to agile practices and agile theory, to more specific books for project managers and agile masters. Here are the top Agile books for managers, software developers and QA Testers.

Succeeding with Agile: Software Development Using Scrum




The main topics of this book is fitting testers into agile theory, agile process, agile practices, and agile stories. The books is must read for testers who spent their entire careers on traditional "waterfall" projects and now need a help with transition to agile projects. The book is comprehensive, starting with a 30,000 foot overview of Agile Manifesto and the various types of testing in an agile project, and then proceeding to review different aspects of producing software with agile methods, mostly from the point of view of testers not programmers. Perhaps you already noticed that most agile books are written by software developers for software developers, but not this book. The book covers many different types of testing, both in terms of how tests are performed, or for different purposes, or to test different layers of an application. The book also covers test automation during agile - both in terms of how-to automate, and what to automate. It is definitely recommended for testers who already works on an agile team, testers would like to work on an agile team, or managers who would like to help transition their team to more agile processes.

Kanban





The book is comprehensive tutorial to implementing one of the relatively new Agile method - Kanban in a software environment. The author is the person behind the creation and evolution of Kanban as a mechanism for software development, and in his book the author provides specific guidance to those attempting to adopt Kanban methods in software development and testing. The book demonstrates how to implement Kanban in practice with real case studies in the software maintenance domain, these cases presented in enough detail to revisit the steps and decisions made. This book is recommended for anyone looking to bring their team to the next level.

Conclusion

As you may have noticed, the top Agile books list has at least one book that every tester have to acquire, study and own. Also keep in mind that all these suggested Agile books imply that Agile is not the silver-bullet that should always be used and acknowledge that while agile practices and agile methods are appropriate in many cases, plan-driven methodologies like waterfall model are the appropriate choice for other situations.
