size=2>

A. To teach employees how their applications should work.
B. To check whether the operating system is suitable for the intended use.
C. To facilitate process improvement for future upgrade projects.
D. To enable the business to understand their required contributions in making the upgrade a success.

Explanation in support of the correct Answer:
A. Test plans are not used to teach people how applications work
B. Checking suitability of an operating system for an application should be a design issue
C. Test plans may require information to be collated for future use, but this is not the best answer
D. This is the purpose of a test plan.

Q. 132: Some traders have been asked to become involved in test design and execution. They have sought clarification of what is meant by a test condition and a test case. Which of the following best describes the difference?

A. A test condition describes the feature to be tested, whilst a test case identifies the required inputs and expected outputs when testing the feature.

B. A test condition describes the system under test, whilst a test case describes the feature to be tested.

C. A test condition describes the feature to be tested, whilst a test case shows the order in which test steps will be taken.

D. A test condition describes the system under test, whilst a test case shows the order in which steps will be taken.

Explanation in support of the correct Answer:
This question tests the candidate’s ability to correctly identify the difference between a test item, a test condition, a test case and a test procedure.

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Scenario:
You have been asked to generate a testing strategy for a corporate web-based application that will provide on-line access to a library of standards and procedures applicable to all of the organisation’s global activities. The organisation uses MS Office on standard PC architectures.

Q. 133: What will be the key testing concerns for the application domain described in Scenario 5? Choose one of the following options:

A. The need to ensure controlled access and the ability to handle large volumes of access requests.

B. Simplicity of updating the accessed documents and the ability to modify access rules.

C. Access via a wide variety of browsers and operating system platforms.

D. The ability to monitor all activity to ensure that attempts to gain unauthorised access are identified and to measure response times.

Explanation in support of the correct Answer:
This is a straightforward question based on a short scenario; it requires the candidate to pick out the implications of the scenario. In the given context answer B is not particularly important because standards are unlikely to be particularly volatile, and even though procedures may change from time to time, this will be a fairly static library; option C would be appropriate for public use, but the corporation uses standard architectures and (probably) browsers; option D is again not particularly significant for this fairly static library that would be relatively unlikely to attract lots of potential hackers.

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Scenario:
A company develops gaming applications. It creates games by buying off-the-shelf components, and adding its own functionality using its in-house software team.

A project has been created to upgrade an existing game, using a graphics engine supplied by an external vendor.

Q. 134: Which of the following would be carried out by the company?

a. Full functional testing of the new graphics engine.
b. Integration testing of the gaming application with the graphics engine.
c. Full functional testing of the game application.
d. Regression testing of the existing game functionality.

A. b and d
B. a and b.
C. c and d.
D. b and c.

Explanation in support of the correct Answer:
This is another question on the theme of selecting the best test approach, but for an application domain that is different from that tested in earlier questions. Here the candidate needs to recognise that the main decision is about testing a COTS application that represents a major change to the system as a whole. Option a would be inappropriate for COTS; option b is key because the engine is new; option c is unnecessary because changes have been minor; option d is required to check that changes have not been regressive.; We need to eliminate answers that contain a and/or c and select answers that include b and d.

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 135: Which of the following is a product risk?

A. The development team may be unfamiliar with the design of the new graphics engine.
B. The new version of the game may not sell as well as the previous version.
C. The new graphics engine may not integrate well with the game.
D. The new version is being produced to a tight deadline.

Explanation in support of the correct Answer:
Options A, B and D are not product risks.

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Scenario:
You have been asked, as a tester with experience of testing user interfaces, to estimate the testing effort required for the user interface of an application with which you are unfamiliar. The user interface is based on an interface design that is being gradually adopted as a standard in the organisation. Records of the original design, development and testing activity are readily available. The estimate is required quickly.

Q. 136: Which of the following approaches to estimation would be most appropriate in this project?

A. Make an initial estimate based on your own experience, then check the numbers against the data for the original project.

B. Create a detailed work breakdown structure and make the micro estimates for each of the component activities, then check these with the original interface team.

C. Use Test Point Analysis or a similar formula-based method to construct an estimate.

D. Check with the designers of the new standard interface how much testing they are expecting to be done.

Explanation in support of the correct Answer:
This is a question about estimating technique and approach. Answer A makes use of the experience of your user interface testing and also gets some value from the data related to the original development; although no detail is available the overall numbers will help to validate your estimate. Answers B and C are both wrong because they would need more detail than is available. Option D looks for input from the development team, but we do not know whether their expectations would match yours, so this would be a risky approach.

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 137: A review of the user interface specification has been scheduled by the development team and you have been invited to attend as a testing specialist. What kind of review would be most helpful for you in this situation?

Choose one of the following options:

A. A walkthrough because it would help me understand the interface better.
B. An inspection because it would result in a signed off specification for me to work from.
C. A technical review because it will identify all the problems with the specification.
D. A management review because it sets management criteria for the development.

Explanation in support of the correct Answer:
This question is included to demonstrate that higher K levels do not automatically generate ‘harder’ questions. Given that you are interested in estimating test effort, all of B, C and D are essentially irrelevant to you, while answer A offers the chance of finding out something useful.

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 138: Assume you are a test analyst working on a banking project to upgrade an existing automated teller machine system to allow customers to obtain cash advances from supported credit cards. The system should allow cash advances of at least 500 euros for all supported credit cards. The correct list of supported credit cards is American Express, Visa, Japan Credit Bank, Eurocard, and MasterCard.

Among the various quality risk items you identify during risk analysis, you have the following, listed in order of perceived level of risk from most risky to least risky:

# Visa or MasterCard unable to obtain any cash advances

# American Express or Eurocard unable to obtain any cash advances

# Japan Credit Bank unable to obtain any cash advances

# Visa or MasterCard cash advances improperly limited

# American Express or Eurocard cash advances improperly limited

# Japan Credit Bank cash advances improperly limited

Assume that, in the following list, each test case requires exactly one hour of test analyst effort to run. Which of the following is a comma-separated, sequenced list of test cases that covers these risks in a way that is appropriate to the level of risk and that minimizes test effort?

A. Test minimum American Express and Eurocard advances; test minimum Visa and MasterCard advances; test minimum Japan Credit Bank advances.

B. Test minimum and maximum Visa and MasterCard advances; test minimum and maximum American Express and Eurocard advances; test minimum and maximum Japan Credit Bank advances.

C. Test minimum Visa and MasterCard advances; test minimum American Express and Eurocard advances; test minimum Japan Credit Bank advances; test maximum Visa and MasterCard advances; test maximum American Express and Eurocard advances; test maximum Japan Credit Bank advances.

D. Test maximum American Express and Eurocard advances; test maximum Visa and MasterCard advances; test maximum Japan Credit Bank advances.

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 139: Assume you are a test analyst working on a banking project to upgrade an existing automated teller machine system to allow customers to obtain cash advances from supported credit cards.

When the user first inserts a valid credit card type, the system considers the user to be in the unauthenticated state. Prior to requesting a cash advance, though, the user must enter the authenticated state. The user authenticates by entering the proper personal identification number (PIN).

The system should be able to support up to 1,000 authentication transactions in process at one time. It should be able to complete authentication of a user within two seconds.

Which of the following test tool types is most likely to be useful for this testing?

A. Static analysis tools
B. Performance test tools
C. Dynamic analysis tools
D. Web test tools

<<<<<< =================== >>>>>>

Q. 140: Assume a project is following a sequential lifecycle model. Which of the following gives an example of applying a static analysis tool at the earliest possible point in the project?

A. Grammatical analysis of a requirements specification
B. Performance simulation of the network and database design
C. Security risk analysis of the application code and database design
D. Automated unit testing with J-Unit test frameworks
