    What is the best resource to learn Functional QA?

    My company has just offered me an opportunity to be involved in the Functional and Load testing. The other members in our group have a background in SQA. I don't want our meetings to turn into a "let's train Karen" conversation, but at the same time, I really need to know what they are talking about.

    Are their any resources that I use (blogs, books, this forum, online seminars) that you could recommend to help me get up to speed on the basics of SQA.

    Thanks....

    I would suggest an SQA bootcamp, similar to the one ran by QAI for fastest acclimation.

    There are probably several interpretations.....but functional you are pretty much testing the specified functional requirements. Make sure things fucntion as they are designed to. Load testing is the same as stress testing.....seeing just how much data your system can handle yet keep running effectively.

    Re: What is the best resource to learn Functional

    I would start with reading as much as you can about testing. In addition to the forums here, SoftwareTestingWiki has some very useful information. I would suggest you start participating in the newbie forum here.

    There may also be some free courses available through ACM if you are a member.

    Re: What is the best resource to learn Functional

    Dhanasekar1375, I deleted your post for a few reasons. First, although the information was pertinent, it did not cite the source of the information. Second, when you have something that large to post, it would be best if you made it an attachment. It was so long it made the thread difficult to read and/or follow. It is not really possible to train a new person in this forum; we normally just provide links to good information or suggestions in regards to training or books.

    Thanks,
    - Linda
