Test Design

A BBST Workbook

Authored by Cem Kaner, Rebecca L Fiedler

Test Design, third in the BBST workbook series, supports students and self-studiers who want a context-driven introduction to black box software testing. Used in parallel with the instructional materials provided at the Center for Software Testing Education and Research (testingeducation.org/BBST), the workbook introduces students to a broad array of test design techniques.

Subsequent courses and workbooks will focus on one technique each, allowing time for tasks that build a deeper knowledge and skill with each technique. This core provides a foundation.

The course introduces you to:
* many techniques at a superficial level (what the technique is);
* a few techniques at a practical level (how to do it);
* ways to mentally organize this collection of techniques;
* using the the Heuristic Test Strategy Model for test planning and design: and
* using concept mapping tools for test planning.

Any of these techniques can be applied in a scripted way or an exploratory way.
