a) BS7925-1
b) ISO9000
c) BS7925-2
d) DO-178B
e) IEEE 829

2. Which of these is not part of the fundamental test process?
a) planning
b) check completion
c) post project reviews
d) specifying tests
e) executing tests

3. A fault is defined as:
a) a deviation from expected delivery or service
b) a manifestation of an error in software
c) a malfunction resulting from the software being run
d) a mistake made by the developer
e) a human error made by the developer

4. A regression test:
a) is only run once
b) will always be automated
c) will help ensure unchanged areas of the software have not been affected
d) will help ensure changed areas of the software have not been affected
e) can only be run during user acceptance testing

5. Match the following terms with the following definitions
q) Planning
r) Specifying
s) Execution
t) Recording
u) Check completion
v) Determine whether there are any faults
w) Specify any exceptions to the strategy
x) Create test inputs and expected results
y) Running the most important tests first
z) Deciding whether we can stop testing
a) q=w; r=v; s=y; t=x; u=z
b) q=w; r=z; s=v; t=y; u=x
c) q=x; r=w; s=y; t=v; u=z
d) q=w; r=x; s=y; t=v; u=z
e) q=x; r=w; s=v; t=z; u=y

6. If an expected result is not specified then:
a) it is still worthwhile to run the test
b) we cannot run the test
c) it may be difficult to repeat the test
d) it may be difficult to determine if the test has passed or failed
e) we cannot automate the user inputs

7. Which statement about faults is false?

2. it assesses the quality of the software
3. it is part of the development lifecycle
4. it  finds out about the reliability of the software
5. it helps avoid being sued by customers
a) All the above are valid reasons why testing is necessary
b) 1,2,3 are valid reasons; 4 & 5 are not
c) 1& 2 are valid reasons; 3,4,5 are not
d) 1,2,3,4 are valid reasons; 5 is not
e) 1,2,4,5 are valid reasons; 3 is not

9. Which of the following could be a reason for a failure?

2. software fault
3. design fault
4. environment fault
5. documentation fault
a) 2 is a valid reason: 1,3,4 & 5 are not
b) 1 & 2 are valid reasons; 3,4,5 are not
c) 1,2,3,4 are valid reasons; 5 is not
d) 1,2,3 are valid reasons; 4 & 5 are not
e) All of them are valid reasons for failure

10. Tests are prioritised so that:
a) you shorten the time required for testing
b) you do the best testing in the time available
c) you do more effective testing
d) you find more faults
e) you complete all the planned testing


  1. I learnt so much on Static Testing. Highly recommend you download the exam papers sold here if you plan on getting into the Software Testing Industry.
