What is Exploratory Testing? And How it Differs from Scripted testing

Author: James Bach

Exploratory Testing

Exploratory software testing is a powerful and fun approach to testing. In some situations, it can be orders of magnitude more productive than scripted testing. I haven't found a tester yet who didn't, at least unconsciously, perform exploratory testing at one time or another. Yet few of us study this approach, and it does not get much respect in our field. It's high time we stop the denial, and publicly recognize the exploratory approach for what it is: scientific thinking in real-time. Friends, that's a good thing.

You'll learn about:

  • Why we should utilize Exploratory Testing
  • Concurrent Test Design and Execution
  • Balancing Exploratory Testing With Scripted Testing
