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.

Test Plan Template

A test plan template is often prepared by mangling IEEE 829-1998 standard for software test documentation, although in some cases QA team keeps reusing existing test plan sample by adjusting it as needed. Depending from a project, a test plan could be very length and bulky, so I would like to share a few pages test plan template. QA Manager could use this lightweight test plan to not only to cover projects details, estimates and resources, but to present it to upper management as a generic test overview. This minimalistic document could be easily extended and adjusted as needed.

As you may have surmised, a test plan document is a productive way for communication and as with any communication, QA Team have to consider the message they are trying to convey, as well as the targeted audience. Generally speaking QA Test Plan should cover product to be tested, what will be tested, what will not be tested, testing estimates, testing resources, testing timeline and testing risks. Keep in mind that the test plan documentation does not replace the process of test planning, test plan is one of the ways of delivering results of test planning and the test plan development stops when the testing stops.
