Revision as of 14:56, 10 January 2019

Having found the official tutorials sometimes hard to understand and ambiguous, my aim was to make these tutorials simple to understand; I hope that I have achieved that and you find them helpful.

What I have written here is from personal experience; if I cannot do it myself, then I cannot write about it.

You should find here, most of the basic things that you will need to know, to become a useful and proficient tester.
