The Domain Testing Workbook - BBST

All students who sign up for the Domain Testing course must have successfully completed the BBST® Test Design course.

Altom, in collaboration with Kaner, Fiedler & Associates, LLC, is offering a new generation of public BBST® courses, with the BBST® Domain Testing course being the fourth one in the series.

This course is about a single testing technique—domain testing. It teaches a risk-based approach to domain testing and helps you gain competence in the technique through extensive practice.

Domain testing is primarily a sampling strategy:

  • Divide the possible values of a variable into subsets of values that are similar in some way (we’ll call them equivalent).
  • Design your test to use only one or two values from each subset. Pick extreme values (we’ll call them boundaries) that maximize the likelihood of exposing a bug.

You might already be familiar with equivalence class analysis or boundary testing. This course goes beyond that.
You will work through a set of real-world applications that is:

  • Broad enough for you to learn the scope of the technique.
  • Detailed enough for you to develop this skill by practicing, getting feedback and trying again until you can do it well.
