    The best thing for you would be to join forums (google, yahoo, orkut) where you can find lot of discussions about various aspects of software testing. Whenever you find a new term or concept, google about it and read the relevant information with some examples.

    This method would be much mroe inetresting than trying to read a textbook.

    Concepts of Black box and white box testing i guess :hide:
    There was a book by Tata McGraw Hill on Software testing - I dnt quite remember the name (I find find it out) which had quite some extensive terms and concepts (a part of which only was included in our engg syllabus) but I believe that much would be sufficient for Theory studies..

    I will give u the name of the book soon

    Hi Priya,

    Good to see that you are intereseted in software testing, I am also working in the same field.

    These are the few topics which you need to have knowledge on:

    1: Types of testing
    2: different SDLC(software development life cycle)
    3: Bug life cycle
    4: techniques, principles of testing and so on..

    You can refer to the below link:

    Testing Basics

    Software testing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    These are just the basics of software testing, once you are comfortable you can move in depth.

    hope this helps
