  • Manual Testing Tutorial: A Comprehensive Guide, with Examples & Best Practices


Manual testing, in software development, refers to the process of manually creating and executing test cases without the use of automated tools. This approach aims to uncover issues, bugs, and defects within a software application, ensuring its quality and functionality. It's worth noting that manual testing is not only the most commonly employed method but also a cost-effective way to evaluate the performance of a software application.

While automated testing tools have improved dramatically in recent years, manual methods are still important because they are very flexible and can be applied to applications that would be difficult or impossible to automate.

Follow this guide to get a complete understanding of manual testing, different methods, strategies, and more.
