    Hello All, I am new in this community and I am preparing for some manual testing interview questions for the position of QA engineer. I want to know what is test coverage and how it works? Can anyone know about this, please elaborate to me.


    Hello Adi Sharma, welcome to the community!

    Test coverage helps to evaluate how much testing is needed and to gather confidence about a product before releasing to production.

    Test coverage itself can be anything that ranges from functionalities, browsers to devices. In the end it acts as a guide to make sure that product has been tested for known variations.

    Good luck for your interview 🙂

    Thanks Everyone for your suggestion and I would like to share with you I have selected in my interview with the help of this awesome list for manual testing interview questions.


    Test coverage defined as a metric in software testing that measures the amount of testing performed by a set of test. It will include gathering information about which part of a program are executed when running the test suit to determine which branches of conditional statements have been taken.

    In simple terms, it is technique to ensure that your test are testing your code or how much of your code you exercised by running the test.
