Many people wishing to study for the ISTQB CTFL or Advanced exams look for free exam questions. What is surprising, is that many people believe the free exam questions will actually help them pass the exam, so much so in fact that some people do not undertake any studying at all, but simply prepare for the CTFL or Advanced exam by looking at the free exam questions.
By passing the ISTQB exams by merely using free exam questions, it highlights the fact that the certification may not be as worthwhile, especially from an employers perspective. Any exam that can be passed by viewing free exam questions, cannot be worthwhile.
More and more testers from the world of QA are turning to different forms of certification. Take the MATA (Mobile App Testing Associate) certification for example. This popular QA certification is rapidly establishing itself as an industry-standard QA certification. It requires actual study and hands-on workshops in order to pass the course and gain the all-important certificate.
