    Common (Testing) mistakes

    As in many other areas, the WEB is full with sites describing "common", "classic", "top 10" mistakes in testing, but it seems that nobody care to read them.

    I saw several posts from people who started a QA process in an organization, and they asked for advide what to do first.

    In my opinion, one of the most important things to do at the begining, is to be aware about common mistakes in that specific area, in order to avoid them. There is no point to make same mistakes, which are well known and documented.

    People usualy learn more from failure than from succes, but is more efficient to learn from other's failure.

    Maybe it would be useful to have in the FAQ forum, posts with common mistakes in different areas, or a permanent post at the begining of every forum (after forum guidelines).

    Re: Common (Testing) mistakes

    testgeek reference is not bad. I would add a few to the list that the author has missed. One common mistakes:

    Who is the Customer:

    For internal development the SW soemtimes acts like a world to themselves and forgets who the customer is.

    User acceptance:

    User Acceptance testing is by far the most poorly conducted testing, with few in the industry who really know how it should be done.

    Configuration Management

    Testers often fail to appreciate the need for CM

    Vertical Testing

    Too many testers conduct vertical functionaly base testing which usually generates very few bugs.

    There are many more specifics I could go into but I will stop here.

    Re: Common (Testing) mistakes

    thanks testgeek,

    As I wrote, the WEB is full of "common mistakes" and the kink you recommended is a good example (in fact, I've got this link after my first search, on the first page).
    My ideea was to post some commom mistakes somehow, somehow, to be seen by everybody.
    Maybe that link could be a good start, but I don't know if the rest of forum members whould be interested to add theirs observations from theirs experience.
    If yes, I could compile all the posts into one list.
