The ISTQB Advanced Level is aimed at experienced testing professionals. This level shows that the person has detailed knowledge regarding software testing and skills to apply this knowledge in practice. The requirements for this level are available through the detailed syllabus.

Like the Foundation exam, the ISTQB Advanced Level exams are multiple choice exams. Multiple choice questions consist of three main parts. The first part is the stem, which is the body of the question. The stem may include a figure or table as well as text. The second part is the distracters, the choices that are wrong. If you don’t have a full understanding of the learning objectives that the question covers, you might find the distracters to be reasonable choices. The third part is the answer or answers, the choice or choices that are correct.

If you sailed through the Foundation exam, you might think that you’ll manage to do the same with the ISTQB Advanced Level exams. That’s unlikely. Unlike the Foundation exam, the ISTQB Advanced Level exams are heavily focused on questions derived from K3 and K4 level learning objectives. In other words, the ability to apply and to analyze ideas dominates the exams. K1 and K2 level learning objectives, which make up the bulk of the Foundation exam, are mostly covered implicitly within the higher-level questions.

For example, the Foundation exam might typically include a question like this:
Which of the following is a major section of an IEEE 829 compliant test plan?
A. Test items
B. Probe effect
C. Purpose
D. Expected results
The answer is A, while B, C, and D are distracters. All that is required here is to recall the major sections of the IEEE 829 templates. Only A is found in the test plan, while C and D are in the test procedure specification and the test case specification, respectively. B is an ISTQB glossary term. As you can see, it’s all simple recall.

On the ISTQB Advanced Level exam, you might find a question like this:
Consider the following excerpt from the Test Items section of a test plan.
During System Test execution, the configuration management team shall deliver test releases to the test team every Monday morning by 9:00 a.m. Each test release shall include a test item transmittal report. The test item transmittal report will describe the results of the automated build and smoke test associated with the release. Upon receipt of the test release, if the smoke test was successful, the test manager will install it in the test lab. Testing will commence on Monday morning once the new weekly release is installed.
Should the test team not receive a test release, or if the smoke test results are negative, or if the release will not install, or should the release arrive without a transmittal report, the test manager shall immediately contact the configuration management team manager. If the problem is not resolved within one hour, the test manager shall notify the project manager and continue testing against the previous week’s release, if possible. If the test release fails installation, additionally the test analyst who attempted the installation shall file an incident report.
Assume that you are working as the test manager on this project. Suppose that you have received two working, installable, testable releases so far. On Monday of the third week, you do not receive the test release.

Which of the following courses of action is consistent with the test plan?
A. Filing an incident report describing the time and date at which you first noticed the missing test release
B. Creating a test procedure specification that describes how to install a test release
C. Sending an SMS text to the configuration management team manager
D. Sending an email to the project manager and the configuration management team manager
The answer is C. A, B, and D are distracters. A is wrong because it is not that the release didn’t install, it’s that it didn’t even arrive. B is wrong because, while such a test procedure might be useful for installation testing, it has nothing to do with the escalation process described in the test plan. C is consistent with the test plan. D is not consistent with the test plan because the spirit of the one-hour delay described in the test plan excerpt is that the configuration management team manager should have a chance to resolve the problem before the project manager is engaged. In addition, when time is of the essence, email is not a good escalation technique.

As you can see, this kind of question requires analysis of a situation. Yes, it helps to know what the IEEE 829 templates such as the test plan, incident report, test item transmittal report, and test procedure specification contain. In fact, you’ll probably get lost in the terminology if you don’t know the standard. However, simply knowing the IEEE 829 standard will not allow you to get the right answer on this question except by chance.

Further complicating this situation is the fact that many exam questions will actually consider a scenario. In scenario-based questions, the exam will describe a set of circumstances. It will then present you with a sequence of two, three, or even more questions based on that scenario.

For example, the questions about the scenario of the test plan excerpt and the missing test release might continue with another pair of questions:
Assume that on Monday afternoon you finally receive a test release. When your lead test analyst attempts to install it, the database configuration scripts included in the installation terminate in midstream. An error message is presented on the database server in Cyrillic script, though the chosen language is U.S. English. At that point, the database tables are corrupted and any attempt to use the application under test results in various database connection error messages (which are at least presented in U.S. English).

Consider the following possible actions:
I. Notifying the configuration management team manager
II. Notifying the project manager
III. Filing an incident report
IV. Attempting to repeat the installation
V. Suspending testing
VI. Continuing testing
Which of the following sequence of actions is in the correct order, is the most reasonable, and is most consistent with the intent of the test plan?
A. I, II, V
B. V, I, IV, III, I
C. VI, II, I, III, IV
D. II, I, V
The answer is B, while A, C, and D are distracters. A is wrong because there is no incident report filed, which is required by the test plan when the installation fails. C is wrong because meaningful testing cannot continue against the corrupted database, because the project manager is notified before the configuration management team manager, and because the incident report is filed before an attempt to reproduce the failure has occurred. D is wrong because the project manager is notified before the configuration management team manager and because no incident report is filed.

As you can see, with a scenario-based question it’s very important that you study the scenario carefully before trying to answer the questions that relate to it. If you misunderstand the scenario—perhaps due to a rushed reading of it—you can anticipate missing most if not all of the questions related to it.

Let me go back to this question of learning objectives for a moment. I said that the exam covers K1 and K2 learning objectives—those requiring recall and understanding, respectively—as part of a higher level K3 or K4 question. There’s an added complication with K1 learning objectives: They are not explicitly defined. The entire syllabus, including glossary terms used and standards referenced, is implicitly covered by K1 learning objectives. As quoted from the Advanced Syllabus:

This syllabus’ content, terms and the major elements (purposes) of all standards listed shall at least be remembered (K1), even if not explicitly mentioned in the learning objectives.

So, you’ll want to read the ISTQB Advanced Level syllabus carefully, a number of times, as you are studying for the Advanced exam. Not only should you read the Advanced syllabus, but you’ll need to go back and refresh yourself on the Foundation. From the Advanced syllabus:

All Advanced Certificate examinations must be based on this syllabus and on the Foundation Level Syllabus. Answers to examination questions may require the use of material based on more than one section of this and the Foundation Level Syllabus. All sections of this and the Foundation Level Syllabus are examinable.

Notice that the second sentence in the above paragraph means that a question can conceivably cross-reference two or three sections of the Advanced syllabus or cross-reference a section of the Advanced syllabus with the Foundation syllabus. It would be smart to take a sample Foundation exam and reread the Foundation syllabus as part of studying for the ISTQB Advanced Level exam.

Remember, the exam is meant to test your achievement of the learning objectives in the ISTQB Advanced Level syllabus. Ask yourself the following questions:
– Do you have a solid grasp of the most difficult learning objectives, the K3 and K4 objectives? If not, then go back and do so now.
– Did you work through all the sample exam questions for Advanced Level?
– Did you read the ISTQB glossary term definitions? If not, then return to the ISTQB glossary now and review those terms.
– Did you read every chapter of this book and the entire ISTQB Advanced Level syllabus?
– Did you get some ISTQB Advanced Level Dumps for practice?
Some ISTQB Dumps 2013 are available in the internet but full ISTQB Advanced Level dumps are very rare.

Good luck to you when you take the exam and the best of success when you apply the ideas in the Advanced syllabus to your next testing project.

      All 3 levels are independent and can be taken in any order. My suggestion would be to take the Test Analyst Level first.

        Your suggestion is taking the TA first but according to the pass-rate graph in this link: istqb.org/exams-root.html it seems that people more successful in TM(60%) than TA(%49) and TTA(44%). Why do u think the pass-rate graph is like that? Can it be because the TM exam is easier than the others?
