ISTQB – Foundation Certification

This book’s content is based on the ISTQB Foundation Certification. The ISTQB Foundation Certification is an international certification standard for software testers. If you are studying for the ISTQB Foundation Certification Exam we believe this book will help you pick up on the basic concepts far easier than if you tried to read the ISTQB Foundation Syllabus on its own.
