CSTE Exam Prep Course
Course Length: 12 Sessions
Start Date (YYYY-MM-DD): 2019-09-03
Price: $795 USD
The CSTE Software Ttesting Body of Knowledge (STBOK) skill categories have been selected to address the challenges faced by today’s software testers. The Web-based CSTE Exam Study Course is a live, facilitated discussion and presentation of the ten STBOK skill categories. The course reinforces current knowledge, re-introduces concepts that may not be used everyday, explains the rationale for use, and highlights both multiple choice and essay type sample examination questions and responses.
It is recognized that many software testers do not need to be competent in all of the STBOK categories to fulfill their current job responsibilities. However, the CSTE candidate should have a working knowledge of the information in all skill categories and will be examined on all ten STBOK categories. This course provides a background of the IT testing fundamentals and also includes the more advanced concepts, which the Certified Software Tester must understand.
The completion of this course along with the necessary practical experience and related resource familiarity will help prepare the candidate for the CSTE examination. Due to time limitations, this course is not intended to cover every component of the STBOK in great depth.*
* Taking this course does not constitute, nor imply, the successful passing of the CSTE examination.
