How RSTF Compares To RSTE
- Rapid Software Testing Explored (RSTE) presents the methodology of Rapid Software Testing with brief practical exercises and Socratic discussion. It is a foundational class that is good to take before RSTF. Although RSTE does cover test strategy in general, this class focuses entirely on strategy.
What you need to bring
