  • Everyone can test manually. Hmmm.... We do not think so. To perform any testing type, including manual, one should have at least an initial understanding of the testing process as well as some technical background.
  • Automated testing is more powerful than manual. One of the fundamental principles says: 100% automation is impossible. Regardless of the project type, you'll have to use manual testing to check usability, for example.
  • Manual testing is simple. No again. How can this testing type be an easy one when you have to check maximum possible scenarios using a minimal quantity of test-cases? Serious analytical skills are definitely required here.
