Manual Testing a rigorous activity which involves software testing without the help of any Automation Te technique.
With my past experience I can say that manual testing turns out to be quite productive while testing new applications. Here are the advantages of manual testing,
- More reliable than automation
- Limited cost
- Easy to learn for new people who has just entered into testing
- Exploratory testing can be done.
- Useful for products with short life cycle.
Practical knowledge helps you learn better than theoretical ones. Perform the testes manually and know more.
