  • 4. These are my Test Cases Time Task/Test Cases Which one will be executed? Now he goes to execute the test cases
  • 5. What will he do now? Will he start pulling his hair?
  • 6. Can’t we break the conventional approach… Can’t we adjust the time? Can’t we be like…
  • 7. I don’t care, I’m Hit Man Here is my Hit List Hit List
    • Time is not enough to execute all those plans
    • I have a simplified Hit List
    • I’m bang on target
  • 8. That’s why the concept of Hit List. a) Context Dependent Key Points : Two types of content: Remains unchanged throughout the application Example: Fixed format of Price, Acc No, Title, frequent occurring of critical bug,…, etc. Should have leading zeros Should be like 0000 13980.5 0 What will be there?

    • With little mentoring, a novice tester can also execute it
    • Following Hit List will uncover bugs within a short period of time
