Tips & Tricks

This post will be entirely about puzzles designed to keep a tester’s mind sharp and ready. No tutorials on load testing services, nor how-to’s or tricks of decent regression. Just good old puzzles you will surely enjoy! Feel free to share answers in comments and don’t spoil your fun by looking there too soon! And here we go!

Just make sure you are a tester and answer accordingly:

  • What is the total amount of eggs you may freely put inside one empty basket?
  • So you have XI + I = X spelled with matches. Make it true… without ever touching, destroying or affecting neither the matches nor the environment they are placed at. No additional items for you to use either.
  • Name two words of four letters that may offend a tester or even ruin his work if not used together.
  • Name more than six words that start with an “s” you can wear on your feet.
  • Some IBM interview test questions to keep you thinking outside the box:
    • How would you be testing a chair?
    • How would you be testing a Window Frame?
    • How would you be testing a paper clip?
    • How would you be testing a pencil?
