ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst-after exam impressions
      #600509 - 11/09/09 03:32 AM

Hi,
Has any of you recently passed (or just sat) the ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst. I'm going to take this exam but first wanted to know the opinion of those who have experienced the exam itself (after 2007 when the new syllabus was introduced).

So my doubts are:

1) Do the questions require to swot certain things word for word as it sometimes happens for the Foundation level?

2) Is the content of the questions based on one example and then subsequently repeated or maybe each question is based on unique example from real life?

3) Are there any questions where one has to give the answers in full sentences i.e. give reasons or describe whats any whys?

cheers
Przemyslaw

I took the exam in June and here is what I can briefly remember to answer your questions.

3) All multiple choice. However several of the answers are going to give you 5-6 answers and then your multiple choices will be:

A) 1, 2, 3
B) 1, 2, 5
C) 2, 4, 5
D) All of the above

2) Several of the questions are based on a hypothetical situation and what type of testing would be the best to use or what testing method or step you should use

1) Not as picky with word for word defintions like the foundation level. More knowing the situation and understanding what you should do in it.

Hope that helps, good luck

Ok, I got positively surprised by the exam - it was focused on thinking, not just memorizing terms etc. I found it easier than Foundation exam which is partly because of my experience and partly because the exam duration is long enough so that one doesn't need to hurry.

Anyway, once learned there is no option to fail it

I used books by Rex Black (available on Amazon) and sample papers that I bought online for about 50 pounds - I recommend these papers definitely.

Cheers
