three. constantly take time to imagine in the course of the checking out ahead of leaping in. this can be the "Ready"part of prepared, target, hearth. Many testers leap directly to "Fire" and do not recognize what they're capturing at. This contains chatting with the developer, speaking in the course of the checking out with others, and writing down a plan and requesting suggestions. this offers how to see for those who accomplished what you initially deliberate and offers you anything to construct on sooner or later.
