Thanks for providing useful information .. I always appreciate your efforts. But I would like to give you feedback on ISTQB Adv Test Manager Sample Qs. These questions are not upto the level of exam.

In exam we get various case studies specially on 'RISK'. All the questions are based on Case Studies to attempt one should have practical knowledge on real time scenarios. I have gone through your all Sample Qs. These questions are not that useful for exam preparation.
