  • Karthik

    Look forward to meeting you all tomorrow for the LIVE webinar.

    • Sai

      Karthik, is it possible to conduct the QA live webinar sessions a little bit earlier in the day like 5pm EST instead of 7.30pm ?
      Thank you

      • Karthik eLearn (Admin)

        Sorry Sai. The timings for LIVE webinar cannot be changed now. Videos is a great alternate option.

    • kishore


      Yesterday I was part of your demo webinar however when I raised my hand or pinged u in the messenger there was no response. Also my mic was muted. Is there anyway we will get access to communicate with you?


      • Karthik eLearn (Admin)

        The LIVE classes have large participants. And to ensure a smooth session, here is the process to interact.
        1. All participants are muted.
        2. You can post your questions over the chat. I will answer each of them as we get to a logical pause.
        3. If the question requires you to speak, I will have you unmuted at that time.
        This has worked very well in the past dozens of programs.

    • Kiran

      Hi karthik

      Saw you sessions on testing for beginners…Liked your practical way of teaching……Appreciate your patience and the preparedness….Very clear and understandable

      One doubt
      In day 2 excel sheet why is the need of module column in Test data and test case sheets when separate excel is created for Application module

      • Karthik eLearn (Admin)

        Thank you. Will address during Day 4.

  • Nagaraju Ankamreddi

    I have bought your Selenium videos with live access and now I would like to take QTP videos also. Would you please provide me the details how much I need to pay more to get access for those videos.

    Please provide the link that where I could pay.

    • Karthik eLearn (Admin)

      Please email for such specific enquiries.

  • Mark

    Hi like your teaching philosophy of hand on approach. I have a little comment that would make things things more clear to me and perhaps pothers.
    If I see 2 examples I can compare them and tell what is common or constant
    between 2 examples, thus appending the understanding. One example
    Just one example does not allow the benefits of comparison or analogy.

    Just wanted to share my thought, hope you find this beneficial.

    • Karthik eLearn (Admin)

      Thank you Mark. And I agree with your comments. Infact, we are starting with project 1 for the 1st 4-5 classes. After which, we go to an entirely new application and start a new project. That way, we have expanded learning.

  • Anu

    Do we get any material for this course.

    • Karthik eLearn (Admin)

      Anu, Yes. Sample Test Plans, FRD’s, Use Case templates, Interview Question Bank, sample resumes and many more. However, these will be made available in the coming few days.

      • bipin

        hi karthik..same question as Anu…how we will get physical material? can we download or print so it would be more convenient to read any time

        • Karthik eLearn (Admin)

          Like you can download and print the files in this post. As we go through the sessions, you will have access to many more documentations, tutorials and guides.

  • arun

    Hello karthik,
    I bought QA videos to finish it fast and start practicing so how can i access to videos daily rather than live.

  • Birju

    Hi Karthik,
    The last test plan was a bit confusing to me with the Test_ id no and the Test data Number, they differ most of the times. please explain thoroughly.


    • Karthik eLearn (Admin)

      We will explore more on these from Day 4.

  • Rakeshh
