Its the validation and verification that matters. Either you do it manually or you do it through an automated script(automation tesing). The ability to busting the code is needed. And if you have automation skill it gives you better visibility and market value.

Which is better Manual or Automation? If you learn automation without having knowledge of Manual, it is like jumping into the river without knowing Swimming. I would suggest it's very important to learn Manual first which is very easy to understand and then if you start learning Automation, then you can not only easily get the knowledge but also 'n' number of opportunities across the world. Alone Manual can limited your opportunities. So jump into the river by knowing how to swim. Hope you got my point :) Regards, Sai Ram Certified Software Testing Professional. read less

Hi Jyotiprakash,, First of all I would like to say you have asked a good question. There is nothing like Manual Testing is better than Automation or vice-versa. It totally depends on the project you are working on. There are different projects in which automation can be applied and that may reduce the overall cost of the project and increase the credebility of the project. On the other hand manual testing is very important in different Web based, Mobile based and native applications. Remember, you may apply automation in your project but you can not skip manual testing of the same project. If you are beginner try to learn manual testing first and after gaining experience for some years try to learn automation also. read less

This question need to be answered with one more question. Better in what we? Is it the scope u are targetting? Basically manual testing is inevtable! Not all can be automated and not all the time. Specially when we start a product we dont know most of its features, which normally evolves. So at this stage we need manual testing. Once some features are frozen and they are base features of the product which normally does not change over versions, they can be automated.

Hi Jyotiprakash, You are asking either Manual testing or automation testing which is preferable. My answer is "Performance Testing(Loadrunner)" Please go through the below content and read with patience it can turn your career in to a greatest path, thats what I am sure. Hi, There are 2 paths infront of you. 1)Programming (Ex: .net/java) 2)Testing(Manual,Automation,Performance Testing). Now I will explain each aspect, 1)If you go to programming side there will be so much of competition , infact its not an easy thing to survive. 2)Testing A) Manual Testing: It is easy to learn , but not at all easy to get a job, why because here your domain knowledge will be taken into consideration.So much of competition will be there like if there are 5 positions then almost 150 to 200 people will come. B) Automation Testing: Here good chances to get a job, if you want to learn QTP you should be expertise in vb.net, and if you want to learn Selenium , you should be expertise in java. So I can say that it is not that easy again to get a job. Here is your best option, read the below content carefully, C) Performance Testing (Loadrunner) ( I am loadrunner Trainer) To learn the Loadrunner the prerequisite is basics of C lang like loops and conditions are enough. In Loadrunner script will be generated automatically by the tool itself, just we have to do few enhancements to the script.In the enhancements if you can able to learn concept of Correlation in Loadrunner then that will be enough to manage your job. Coming to competition if there are 10 positions, then the number of people will come hardly 17 to 20 persons. Finally I can say that Loadrunner is easiest job rather than any other technology in the IT field. Once you finish the training, you will stand at a position where 5 years real time experienced guy is having the same knowledge. This is 100% my assurance. Note: If you want Loadrunner Course Content then I will send it to you. Recommendation: Learn Loadrunner which is very easy. To contact me find the details as below, Praveen Kumar. M India. read less
