Course Description

Software testing with Visual Studio streamlines the development and testing process and supports the needs of software developers and testers. In this course, you'll explore creating test cases and test steps. You'll also learn how to parameterize in order to manage your test cases, shared steps, and requirements. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the 70-497: Software Testing with Visual Studio certification exam.
