Exploratory Testing: Exploratory Testing can be a creative,
informal software test that is not based on formal test
plans or test cases, testers may be learning the software

testing, but often taken to mean that the testers have

Exploratory software testing is a powerful and fun approach
to testing. Exploratory testing is especially useful in
complex testing situations, when little is known about the
