ISTQB Foundations Exam Review

346 Signatures Goal: 500

As a public service to the people who have taken the ISTQB Foundation level exam, I wish to add my name to those appealing to their board of directors for answers to the following questions: 1) Have there ever been issues with the ISTQB Foundation exam reliability coefficient reviewed by your exam consultants Kryterion? 2) Have the reliability co-efficients consistently shown, since the inception of the ISTQB's certification program, that results on the certification exams accurately measure the testers' knowledge of the syllabi? 3) Have there ever been any other issues with the validity of the exams? 4) How often do those external reviews take place? 5) Are the results of Kryterion's (or a third party's) independent evaluations publicly available?

    Took the exam unfortunately and got very suspicious afterwards. How does this verify or prove that I am getting better at testing, or that someone who hires me is getting a tester who is better that someone else who has spent years testing a variety of different applications in different companies but who doesn't have ISTQB? Sounds like profiteering to me.

    I tried to pass an ISTQB FL exam from Bangalore/India.
    Almost all the questions had one destruction and one correct answer. And two can be eliminated without any problems. I anticipate almost all my answers are correct. Under any worst case I was sure of getting 29 answers correct. My score was 24/40. I couldn't understand what went wrong. We did this test in a group from the company and I was certainly had more decent knowledge from others. The guys who didn't prepare at all got 31 answers correct. My Question, how can I be sure if this is the real result which I have? This certificate is a business as someone said in this group. I'm sure that I'm better than most group of peoples who more 80% in ISTQB.

    I've tried to pass an ISTQB FL exam 2 months ago in Sofia/Bulgaria.
    The questions were not very close to the syllabus and it is almost impossible to pass the exam without participated their course which is very expensive. Also I'm not able to see my results after that and I cannot check where I was wrong. My scored was 24/40. 26 is minumun to pass the exam but how can I be sure if this is the real result which I have? This certificate is a business, not a measure of how good you are. I can continue to work without this fake paper and I'm sure that I'm better than 50% of people who have this certificate.
