"I think this class was right choice for me.  Every learner can learn more about definitions from any book, but hardly involve in practice that what makes us perfect . In my case, I have been reading many books, taking You tube online training, since from last three months, but when Swati gave us assignments  to write Test cases and Test case Scenario last week, I feel like that is what matter to become tester (think hard, be creative) instead of just reading book." - Roshan Bharatee

"The online sessions are very interesting. This is the best training that I never got before from anywhere. Many thanks" - Moise Ake

"I took the testing course before but I like this course because it is providing us a lot of information on how testing goes in real time. I really appreciate about the live project which helped me to gain confidence about the live work. I am thankful for giving the immediate feedback to our assignment work. My Special thanks to Swati for providing quick response to our questions and the way how she explains." - Yamini Kothala
