Software testing is not a easy task.but some people take it otherwise But Software testing is not a job, it’s a responsibility  either we are doing Manual testing or Automation testing , Tester is an authorized person for the Quality of particular project or product.

We should keep these point in our mind to make our testing effective like…

  • You report something extraordinarily before someone else has chance to do it
  • You co-relate past experiences, learning, same work experience with current task and generate a fabulous output

And We can also include Three C’s

1.Critical Thinking

when it comes to building a deep-enough understanding of the product to focus on the right testing and assign appropriate priorities to defects.


It takes creativity to figure out how to test a feature, what is the right data to use, how many different paths do you need to traverse to cover all the scenarios


How to convey an issue clearly and concisely, in a constructive tone but one that also denotes the severity of the problem.
