If u r getting an oppurtunity for working on live projects, you shouldn't miss it. You know Software industry demands experience and u can only get by working on live projets. Moreover there are companies or consultants which give you training and provide u oppurtunity to work on live projects ,also do placemennts. But also charge some fee.

try

by Dr Dij In reply to Do Live Projects

some of software prods; goto mercury.com (now hp.com) and download free trial versions of loadrunner, and several other products.

They also have free CBT courseware in this. There are also numerous webinars archived and live by sw test products companies.

you can also get near free online courses at the IEEE computer society (computer.org) and the acm (acm.org). Thoussands of pgmg related courses, free with joining for year.

A bit more but worth is books24x7.com 14 books have 'software testing' in title and 751 mention this in various sections of the book. I've gone thru several of the better ones.

You can read the full text online, each books sells for typically $30 to $120 if you don't have the subscription. And you keep your gal happy by not filling your apartment with books :)

Mindleaders.com has courses on RUP testing (ibm's rational process)

Software Test

by jamesdam In reply to .

As old as this post is, there are still people who are reading it and may take away some impressions of work in the Software Test area.

There is plenty of opportunity for software test work, but I caution you to know before all else that Quality cannot be tested into a software product. It just cannot be done. Software test has its place as a singular and necessary tool in the software development process, but it is not the cureall for software related problems.

You would be advised wisely to learn the skills of a Software Quality Engineer. This is a disciplined approach that begins before any software code is written; It is a disciplined process to bring and apply Quality principles to the software development process, thru structured reviews, Customer Walkthroughs and other milestones that are designed to examine not only software code, but the very processes, tools, and disciplines that are used to design and then build software. This avoids costly errors introduced by just writing the software code to some moving target of a software specification, and then hope for the best. You test on the back end of the process, and this will not uncover any problems that are inherent in the start of the process. At that point and beyond, you are hosed, and the cost of rework and redesign is high.

Some of the tools utilized are well known, and go by the names of Capability Maturity Modeling, ISO Standards for software quality, and many of the other acronyms in the alphabet soup of process improvement discipline that are the flavor of the day...

You are working hard to become a software professional, become a Quality Engineering specialist, and you will yield better results on your projects, and you will work for companies that turn out better software product in the marketplace, thus securing the position of your products and enhancing your value to the Company.

That is the type of software test position you want. There is still plenty of software test grunt work involved in the practical sense, only you will be making those efforts more effective by involvement at the start of the process.

Good Luck.
