Question 1

You are working on a web-based application called Book Vault that allows people to upload books and order books. This application must be available on all major browsers.

You have been testing the application manually and management have asked you to consider automating some of the tests.

You have investigated a number of commercial and free tools which can automate tests at a web browser level and one tool in particular meets your requirements and you have implemented a trial version.

You have basic programming skills and the main goal is to automate a few functional tests to see if the tool is compatible with the application and can recognise the objects and controls.

Which scripting technique would be MOST suitable in this scenario in order to meet the objectives?

Answer : B

Question 2

What are the four horizontal layers of the gTAA?

Answer : C

Question 3

You have executed an automated test suite for a product that was released into production. Although all the tests passed, there was a major failure in production in an area that was covered well by your automated tests.

You have run the automated tests again and one of the tests is now failing and this is directly related to the production defect that was raised. You decide to run the automated test suite again on the same version of the SUT and the test now passes.

What SHOULD you do now to verify the validity of the automated tests?

Answer : A

Question 4

In order to achieve re-use of a TAS, where SHOULD the design for reuse occur?

Answer : C

Question 5

You are the TAE for an Agile project which has six sprints for the current release. Sprint five is underway and the automated regression suite is due to start later today.

You have re-examined the results from the automated regression runs for the past four sprints. You notice that two test cases both reported a pass for sprints 1 and 4 but a fail for sprints 2 and 3. The failures have gone undetected and are therefore unexplained. Both test cases are closely coupled with other tests in the suite.

What course of action SHOULD you take?

Answer : C

Question 6

What is the PRIMARY advantage of using abstraction in the TAA?

Answer : A

Question 7

New features have been added for the current release of a SUT.

Which action would NOT be appropriate for the TAE to perform when evaluating the impact on the TAS?

Answer : A
