Is learning Automation Testing good enough or do I need to learn Manual Testing as well? Help!September 21, 2017 at 9:34 am #17503@ivorOnly available when logged in
In my experience there is a need for both. Automation is great for performance and regression testing but there are always usability issues that can only be found by hands on end user testing and exploratory testing. Look and feel, ease of use, customer experience etc…
That’s my view may be a bit old school – lets see what others say.September 21, 2017 at 10:26 am #17510@tassaweraminOnly available when logged in
There is always a trade off between Manual and automation testing.
As @ivor discussed automation testing really helps in finding any regression but since not all scenarios can be automated you have to somehow rely on manual testing.
Do visit the Resources section there are lot of articles, blogs etc. available related to this.September 22, 2017 at 6:46 am #17516@zenrays3Only available when logged in
In manual testing (as the name suggests), test cases are executed manually (by a human, that is) without any support from tools or scripts. But with automated testing, test cases are executed with the assistance of tools, scripts, and software.

Short answer: yes. You should learn as many things as possible.
Bit longer answer: Before you can automate a thing, you need to learn the thing. Assuming someone else isn’t just telling you what to automate (in which case I’d argue you’re not a tester), then you have to do non-automated testing first. I don’t think you can – or should – automate something that you can’t first do manually. Automation is optional, non-automated is not.
