    Ah, make sense.

    What would you guys write for this:

    6 Discuss the issues involved in testing large ICT systems. (15 marks)

    Apart from Costs/Time constrains?
    Maybe discuss:
    The various types of testing such as alpha and beta and their reliability?
    The need for specialist skills/ knowledge when testing network based systems?
    The need to ensure that ICT systems must operate as stated?

    Could you maybe also refer to the different methodologies and discuss the issues of testing within them?

    Lads i need some help with strategies

    Factors that influence include: Business Goals, Available Finance, Legacy Systems, geography of clients
    External factors: legislation, compliance

    if a strategies question pops up in the exam would it ask for the factors with an explanation of why they're important or just ask for the factors itself?

    =========

    BTW what are the different support methods for Users??
