QA interview questions and answers are completely based on the QA interview I and my friends attended during last years of working experience as Quality Assurance Testers. These tricky QA questions and scenarios are based only on real experience and were asked during actual QA interviews. Therefore, QA Tester who is looking for a Quality Assurance job will greatly benefit from this. If you are the first time job seeker as a QA Tester, then it can help you even better. Finally, if you are plant to attend an interview, you have to know these questions and answers by heart and must be very smooth in answering these questions. Practice in front of the foe or just a mirror, speak loud and clear. All the time, when you study the questions, you feel fine and feel relaxed, but the reality is, at the time of the actual interview, even though you feel you have the knowledge, cannot express it well. It may sound a little rough, but this is everyone’s hard experience. When you come out the interview door, you are deeply regretted. If you cannot remember these by heart, believe me, it may not work. The Testers are welcome to post own questions and answers to the following QA interview questions.

What's in your Testers Tool Box?

The test interview is not only a test of interviewee specific knowledge, but an opportunity to knowledge exchange. As an interviewer I have to spend at least half an hour interviewing some potential Quality Assurance Engineer and I want to use these minutes wisely. For example, I like to interview testers about various tools they use during preparation and actual testing. Here are some wonderful tools I use in my day-to-day testing routine:

Firebug - extension for Mozilla Firefox browser allows the debugging, editing, and monitoring of any website's CSS, HTML, DOM, and JavaScript;

YSlow for Firebug - helps QA Tester to analyzes web page performance by examining all the components on the page and even gives suggestions on how to make it faster;

Web Developer toolbar for Mozilla Firefox - makes CSS, HTML and link validations right from your menu bar;

Selenium - a free software testing framework for web applications;

Windows Virtual PC - is a virtualization suite for Microsoft Windows operating systems, and an emulation suite for Mac OS X on PowerPC-based systems. Virtual PC allows you create separate virtual machines on your Windows desktop;

Cygwin - a Unix-like environment and command-line interface for Microsoft Windows;

OpenSTA - GUI-based web server benchmarking utility that can perform scripted HTTP and HTTPS heavy load tests with performance measurements;

WinSCP - an open source SFTP and FTP client for Microsoft Windows;

HttpWatch – an HTTP Viewer and HTTP Sniffer for IE and Firefox;

Do you use any other good tools?

Not sure this is a good question as we work with tools so everyday that is easy to take them for granted and forget to enumerate; or just consider them as not 'test tool'...
