    New to QA - Have a question

    Hi all.
    I'm a bit new in the QA area and I'm trying to learn as much as I can by myself.

    I would like to know what is an STD and where can I find information to learn how to write such document?

    Thanks.

    Acronyms have many meanings across many companies, can you explain what STD means in your company? Off the top of my head I can think it to mean Software Test Design or even Software Test Document. It's also good to know what you know about this so that we can answer particular questions and expand your knowledge, than just rehash what you already know.

    I believe the meaning is Software Test Description.

    Software Test Description - this sounds to me like a Test Plan. Does that seem correct to the context in which you heard the term?

    I guess no-one cared to bring up "Sexually Transmitted Disease?"
