I don't fully know what you are getting at with your question. Could you please elaborate? What do you want to do? What are your doubts?


The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

Mhh, that's still a very generic question. Perhaps http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?RelentlessTesting would be a good starting point?
What type of testing are you referring to? Why do you want to know? What is your need?

Take a look at stickyminds.com this should giev you an over view of testing. Baiscally when you are testing you should identify the most important/risky/used features and test these the hardest. Your test cases should aim to test all possibilities of say input and hopefully find the bugs.
Remember if you don't find any bugs you haven't done enough testing
