Q-20: Assume you are a test manager working on a project to create a programmable thermostat for home use to control central heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. In addition to the normal HVAC control functions, the thermostat also has the ability to download data to a browser-based application that runs on PCs for further analysis.
The company test strategy calls for each test case to be run on all combinations of
configuration options. For this system, you identify the following factors and, for each factor, the following options:
 Supported PC/thermostat connections: USB and Bluetooth
 Supported operating systems: Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac X, Linux
 Supported browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera
Because there are 10 test cases that involve downloading data, this would require running 300 test cases, each of which requires an hour to run.
With management approval, you decide to test five configurations, covering each option but not all the possible pairs and triples of options.
Which of the following statements describes the best option for documenting this deviation from the test strategy?
1. In the test design specifications, explain the alternate approach planned for this project
and how to set up the test configurations.
2. In the test procedure specifications, explain which test cases should be run against
which configurations.
3. In the master test plan, explain the alternate approach planned for this project and why
this approach is sufficient.
4. In the test item transmittal report, explain the alternate approach planned for this
project and which test items were tested against which configuration.

Q-21: Continue with the scenario described in the previous question. You are writing a master test plan to cover integration testing and system testing of the programmable thermostat. Select all of the following statements that are true.
1. The approach section should describe how to test the integration of the thermostat with
other parts of the HVAC system.
2. The schedule section should describe when integration testing should start and when
system testing should start.
3. The environmental needs section should address who is responsible for each level of
testing.
4. The test items section should describe the equipment required for each level of testing.

Q-22: 12. Continue with the scenario described in the previous questions, where you are a test manager working on a project to create a programmable thermostat for home use to control central heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. One critical quality risk identified for this system is the possibility of damage to the HVAC system caused by excessive cycling of the compressor (i.e., turning the unit on and off repeatedly in short intervals). Which of the following is a reasonable way to use an IEEE 829 test plan to direct appropriate testing for this risk?
1. Write a separate test plan for this level of testing.
2. List the feature that prevents excessive cycling as a feature to be tested.
3. Detail all of the requirements of the programmable thermostat in the introduction of the
test plan.
4. Include a fully functioning compressor as one of the test items.

Q-23: Continue with the scenario from the previous question.
Historically, on seven past projects, the test team has found approximately 12 bugs during system test for each person-month of development team effort. Five developers are assigned to work on a new project that is scheduled to last six months. Assume that the cumulative number of bugs found, as shown in your convergence chart, has flattened at 351 defects. Based on this information only, which of the following statements is most likely to be true?
1. You would expect to find exactly 20 more defects before the end of system test.

4. You have found roughly the number of defects you would expect to find during system
test.

Q-24: Continue with the scenario from the previous question.
Assume that this project is following an iterative lifecycle, while the previous projects for which you have bug metrics followed a sequential lifecycle. Assuming no other dissimilarities between this project and the previous projects exist, which of the following might be a reason to question the accuracy of the predicted number of defects?
1. People factors
2. Material factors
3. Process factors
4. Quality factors

Q-25: You are a test manager in charge of system testing on a project to update a cruise-control module for a new model of a car. The goal of the cruise-control software update is to make the car more fuel efficient.
You have written a first release of the system test plan based on the final requirements
specification. You receive an early draft of the design specification. Identify all of the following statements that are true.

2. Counting the number of test cases passed and the number of test cases failed
3. Counting the number of requirements that work properly and the number of
requirements with known defects
4. Counting the number of tested risk items without known defects and the number of
tested risk items with known defects

Q-27: You are a test manager in charge of system testing on a project to update a cruise-control module for a new model of a car. The goal of the cruise-control software update is to make the car more fuel efficient.
Halfway through test execution, you find that the test results do not conclusively determine whether fuel efficiency has improved. Identify all of the following actions that you might direct the test analysts to take to help to resolve this problem.
1. Redesign the fuel efficiency tests.
2. Revise the quality risk analysis.
3. Modify the test environment to gather more detailed actual results.
4. Check for consistency in tested fuel mixtures.
5. Report fuel efficiency as apparently unchanged.

Q-28: Assume you are a test manager in charge of integration testing, system testing, and acceptance testing for a bank. You are working on a project to upgrade an existing automated teller machine system to allow customers to obtain cash advances from supported credit cards.
The system should allow cash advances from $20 to $500, inclusively, for all supported credit cards. The supported credit cards are American Express, Visa, Japan Credit Bank, Eurocard, and MasterCard.
During test execution, you find five defects, each reported by a different tester, that involve the same problem with cash advances, with the only difference between these reports being the credit card tested. Which of the following is an improvement to the test process that you might suggest?
1. Revise all cash advance test cases to test with only one credit card.
2. Review all reports filed subsequently and close any such duplicate defect reports before
assignment to development.
3. Change the requirements to delete support for American Express cards.

3. The complete set of tests has not yet been run.
4. A number of unresolved bugs remain in the backlog.

Q-30: Which of the following is an example of a cost of internal failure?
1. Finding a bug during testing
2. Training developers in secure coding practices
3. Designing test cases
4. Fixing a customer-detected bug

Q-31: You are the manager of a bank's quality assessment group, in charge of independent testing for banking applications. You are in charge of testing for a project to implement an integrated system that uses three off-the-shelf components to manage a bank's accounts-receivable system.
Which of the following is most likely to be a major business motivation for testing this system?
1. Avoiding loss of life
2. Having confidence in correct customer billing
3. Finding as many bugs as possible before release
4. Gathering evidence to sue the component vendors

Q-32: Which of the following is a risk of outsourced testing that might not apply to distributed testing?
1. Selection of an improper test partner
2. Communication problems created by time zone differences
3. Insufficient skills in some of the test team members
4. Inconsistent test processes across the testing locations

Q-33: You are the manager of a bank's quality assessment group, in charge of independent testing for banking applications. You used quality risk analysis to allocate effort and prioritize
your tests during test preparation. You are currently executing the system integration test. You have finished running each test case once. You are not certain how much time the project management team will allow for additional test execution because regulatory changes might require the system to be activated ahead of schedule.
Based on the severity and priority of the bugs found by each test case, you have calculated weighted failure for each test case. You also know the risk priority number for each test case based on the quality risk item(s) the test case covers. Considering both the weighted failure and the risk priority number, you have reprioritized your test cases for the final days or weeks of testing.
Which of the following is a benefit this reprioritization will provide?
1. If testing is curtailed, you will have expended the minimum amount of effort possible.
2. If testing is extended, you will have time to run all of your tests.
3. If testing is curtailed, you will have run the most important tests.
4. If testing is extended, you will have covered all of the requirements.

Q-34: Which of the following is a benefit of exploratory testing and other reactive test strategies that would not apply to an analytical requirements-based test strategy?
1. The ability to utilize a very experienced test team
2. The ability to accurately predict the residual risk prior to delivery
3. The ability to prevent defects during requirements analysis
4. The ability to test effectively without a complete test basis

Q-35: Which of the following is a type of defect that you can detect more easily in a review than by a dynamic test?
1. Regression
2. Maintainability
3. Performance
4. Reliability

Q-36: Which of the following is a type of review in which you would expect to detect the greatest percentage of defects present in the item under review?
1. Informal
2. Static analysis
3. Simulation
4. Inspection

Q-37: Assume you are a test manager working on a project to create a programmable thermostat for home use to control central heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. In addition to the normal HVAC control functions, the thermostat has the ability to download data to a browser-based application that runs on PCs for further analysis. During quality risk analysis, you identify compatibility problems between the browser-based application and the different PC configurations that can host that application as a quality risk item with a high level of likelihood. Select all of the following actions that should occur in the quality and test plans to best ensure that the project team will minimize this risk upon release?
1. Carefully select the list of supported configurations.
2. Review the list of supported configurations with project stake—holders.
3. Support only a single browser based on technical attributes.
4. Downgrade the likelihood of the risk based on available test resources.
5. Test the supported PC configurations early in test execution.

Q-38: Assume you are a test manager in charge of integration testing, system testing, and acceptance testing for a bank. You are working on a project to upgrade an existing automated teller machine system to allow customers to obtain cash advances from supported credit cards.
You have received a requirements specification that states that the system should allow cash advances from $20 to $500, inclusively, for all supported credit cards. Assume that the bank is required contractually to support the following credit cards: American Express, Visa, Japan Credit Bank, Eurocard, and MasterCard.
The bank has given you the responsibility of organizing a review of the requirements
specification. Which of the following is a risk for this review?
1. You do not know the supported credit cards.
2. You do not include the proper stakeholders in the review.
3. You do not know which test levels to address.
4. You do not receive the requirements specification.

Q-39: Assume you are a test manager working on a project to create a programmable thermostat for home use to control central heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. In addition to the normal HVAC control functions, the thermostat has the ability to download data to a browser-based application that runs on PCs for further analysis. During quality risk analysis, you identify compatibility problems between the browser-based application and the different PC configurations that can host that application as a quality risk item with a high level of likelihood.
Your test team is currently executing compatibility tests. Consider the following excerpt from the failure description of a compatibility bug report:
1. Connect the thermostat to a Windows Vista PC.
2. Start the thermostat analysis application on the PC. Application starts normally and
recognizes connected thermostat.
3. Attempt to download the data from the thermostat.
4. Data does not download.
