This Question Set is for you if you are studying for the ISTQB/ISEB Foundation Certificate in Software Testing. The Syllabus makes use of about 150 special terms which are defined in ISTQB's "Standard glossary of terms used in Software Testing". You will need to know these terms and this Question Set will help you to learn them.

This is to supplement the course, self-study or other training which you will need to gain the certificate. Obviously, you need far more for this certificate than just knowing the terms.
