Syllabus – Key points

41 reviews for ISTQB Foundation – Certified Mobile App Tester

  1. Izzy Smith | Junior QA Analyst | TMAC

    Interesting course, good detail & nice practical uses
    maybe update some of the slides to more relevant examples/ applications

  2. Simon Evans | QA Software Test engineer | DAC Beachcroft

    Really useful and interesting

  3. Yat Wan | Test Lead | Royal Mail Group

    Trainer has been informative, provided good examples related to theory, and helped me go over where I went wrong in the past paper.

    Perhaps more organised setup for delegates in installing and using Android Studio, before course started.

  4. Daniel Phillips | Automation Engineer | Capgemini

    Course was interesting, but practical work didn’t always seem to align with the examinable content – on day 1 a lot of the content was gone over relatively quickly in favor of doing practical work around drawing diagrams. What was implemented on day 2 was better, theory was taught first and then backed up by relevant practical work afterwards.

  5. Danny Yau | Application Tester | Steve Vick International

    Course was great, Rosie was very helpful and always explaining everything in detail.

  6. james troup | software test engineer | IBM

    I thought that our trainer was very good, she was very helpful and the amount of information was a good amount and not overpowering.

  7. Luke Rogers | Software Test Engineer | IBM

    It was very enjoyable and insightful, the information from the trainer helped relate the course information into real world scenarios easily to help understand the details of the course.

  8. Susie Harrison | Software Test Engineer | IBM

    The course was interactive and fun
    Lots of information but was not overwhelming

  9. Kristian Easton|Test Engineer|IBM

    She was a really good speaker and went into really good detail on examples and explanation and got everyone involved

  10. Elton Araunjo|Software test engineer|IBM

    The course was excellent and was able to increase my knowledge bank in test. The course also helped my build on the knowledge that i gained from the foundation course, by helping me understand how testing take place on a mobile app.

  11. Joe Dobson|Test Engineer|IBM

    Really good course, and really explained by a fun instructor. Angelina got us involved however possible and made sure were all comfortable with the pace and info before moving on. She also showed us a demo at the end which was very interesting. Hope to have Angelina teaching me again in future.

  12. Sunny Yang | Digital Consultant | KPMG

    Angelina was very helpful in answering our questions and keeping everyone engaged throughout the whole 4 days. I believe it would be better to keep it as 4 days (I heard some of these run for three days only), and perhaps it would be easier to use Microsoft Teams instead of GoTo Meetings? As we use Teams as our primary source of communication within the organisation anyway.

  13. Ana Ferreira | Business Tester | Siemens

    Good structure, nice explained

  14. Ana Cavaco | Software Tester | Siemens SA

    Really useful and with connection to the real world, not just academic knowledge

  15. Mauricio Geraldelli | | Siemens Portugal

    Great course, but too many info for 2 days (as usual). It will take some time to review and process the content.

  16. Joaquim Fragoso | SW Test and Automation expert | Siemens SA

    Very comprehensive. A reference for mobile testing world

  17. James Anderson | QA Tester Apprentice | Invotra LTD

    The course was very informative and help me learn more about mobile app testing. The course was informative and fun and the trainer was motivating and was very helpful in explaining the syllabus.

  18. Patrick Wilson | Test Analyst | IBM

    Lovely person, very approachable with a deep understanding of the topic, allowing Angelina to explain the content in a way that was engaging, and made it easy to digest. It was easy to stay engaged with the content right through to the end, and the overall course quality was very high.

  19. Thomas Rey | Junior QA Analyst | Jagex

    As I have only taken the foundation course before I was unsure of what to expect with this course. The foundation course was a lot bulkier but this course felt a lot lighter.

    As I predominately work with mobile devices in my testing I feel I knew a quite about about some of the topics we discussed but I was able to grow a deeper understanding of areas I knew already and I learnt a lot about areas I didn’t know about.

    I enjoyed the length of the course it felt just right.

  20. peter wilson | software tester | vaultex

    turning the course into a 3 day course be be really good to much info for just 2 days

  21. Lee Palmer | QA Analyst | Jagex

    Overall I felt the course could have done with being an extra day in length. We skipped over most of the practical exercies as well as some of the final topic being sped through the make up the time. This seemed due to us asking lots of questions for the first part of the course which meant we were playing catchup

    I felt on this course I missed out on having the slides/course sylabus as a physical copy in front of me that I could highlight and make notes on. This time around I was having to make notes from the slides and then also make notes about this slides at the same time. This was exhausting and I stuggled to keep up.

  22. Ryan Neave | QA Analyst | Jagex LTD

    Course was informative.

    I found that this course, in particular in the second day there was a lot crammed into one day with little time to discuss a great deal of things.

    If it was spread over 3 days I believe it would have been digested a lot better.

  23. George Selway|Software Tester Apprentice|Sedgemoor District Council

    It was easy to follow and the instructor was very friendly and patient.

  24. Toni Lampert | Apprentice Software Tester | Booking.com

    It is very informative and allowed you to highlight the areas that you need to study in more detail for the exam. At times we would get lost in the practical that doesn’t relate back to the exam

  25. Duncan MacGregor | IT Technician | OS

    Course was excellent, well paced, superb instructor and feel like I learned a lot.

  26. Darrell Cole | QA | MoneyBox

    Good overview plenty to learn lots of Fun

  27. Marc Ackermans||

    I couldn’t hope for a better trainer! Being a non English native speaker I was afraid the course would have been a big challenge but Angelina has made this course for me easy to understand making sure I wasn’t left behind. She has clarified each doubt and on top of that she’s also good fun. I hope I will meet Angelina in a future course.

  28. Mark Whitby|Head of Development and Testing|InHealth Intelligence

    Course was excellent. The trainer was energetic and engaging.

  29. Madelaine Helleur O’Connor|Graduate Data and Technology Consultant|KPMG

    I was very happy with the way the course was presented.
    By asking everyone questions during the course Angelina made sure we all stayed focused (at lease it worked for me).

  30. Kieran Hooper|Business Consultant|IBM

    The course is quite clear, sometimes a bit internet connection issue. The content is quite good

  31. Joshua Lovejoy|Test Analyst|University of Southampton

    Angelina was very knowledgeable and presented the course with lots of energy and humour.

  32. Colin McNairney|Test Automation Specialist|IBM UK

    Course was very good, but difficult for me to follow as I am deaf in both ears and had difficulty keeping up with what was going on. I depend mainly on text and slides, but suffered some confusion as I did not have context in some situations.

  33. Thomas Collins|Software Tester|Aareon

    Angelina was very friendly and approachable, she was happy to answer any queries that I had as we went along. I was initially a bit worried about remote learning, but things went very well. Angelina tried to make the course as interactive as possible, even though I know that it is hard to do this remotely. Thanks Angelina 🙂

  34. Sophie Pearson|PTP Business Analyst|Old Mutual Wealth

    It is very informative and allowed you to highlight the areas that you need to study in more detail for the exam. At times we would get lost in the practical that doesn’t relate back to the exam

  35. George Selway|Software Tester Apprentice|Sedgemoor District Council

    It was easy to follow and the instructor was very friendly and patient. There was a great case study to follow with linked tasks.

  38. Darrell Cole|QA|Moneyhub

    Good overview plenty to learn lots of Fun

  39. Attila Pal|Data administrator|Randstad

    I had a virtual course between 18-20 May and really enjoyed it. I had already prepared from a book but John, the trainer, helped me with topics I was not confident in. In my opinion, the course was well structured and interactive enough – we had optimal break times, practiced sample questions, had explaining discussions and Q-A sessions all 3 days. It was better than just reading the book, I understood the material more because of visualising and pointing out the major correlations. I took my exam 2 days after this course and had 90% (probably around 20-25% more than if preparing from the book only)!

  40. Iulia Olaru| Test Engineer Apprentice – Functional tester| IBM

    I really enjoyed the course, although it was fast paced, every topic was covered and explained perfectly with plenty of practical exercises.

  41. Nithya Anantharaman| Test Manager| KPMG UK

    The course certainly covers the basics – all different areas specific to mobile testing, would have been more insightful to see an application of this perhaps via a case study.
