Software Test Estimation
Duration: 2 Days
This course uses hands on labs to guide the student through the many questions of test estimation. It will help the student decide whether to use risk to determine what should be tested and what tasks should be completed before those tests can be performed. It will also show what techniques can be combined like work-breakdown-structures, historical project data, and rules of thumb to estimate the time and money required for those tasks. The student will also be taught how to respond to management requests to compress testing efforts into pre-existing schedules or budget targets.
