    Hi Toan,

    Thanks for your question. My questions for your questions as below:

    Re:
    1- If customer give you a system, and ask you to play and find is it working fine or not with less requirements.
    => What's your testing approach here?
    > In most of the cases, regardless I'm having documents or not, I need to understand the following either by asking or researching:

    * Who is targeted user of system?
    * How they use system?
    * System requirements?
    * How critical if a bug found in the system?

    By finding the answer for above questions, I will have a general idea of the map I need to explore. I then apply HICCUPPS technique to start the testing (Read more about HICCUPPS here: http://www.developsense.com/blog/2012/07/few-hiccupps/ )

    2- If you have 1000 test cases have to execute in 2 days.
    => How can you perform this action?
    > Well, this is easy. I will have to perform 500 test cases a day so that I can finish 1000 test cases in 2 days :D
    ...and here is serious answer:

    The only way I can think is find which test cases are the most important ones to be executed during 2 days.

    sorry I can't distinguish between test strategy and test approach to answer your question. Maybe I need help from others.

    A test strategy is a planning document that provides the overall direction for the software testing needs of a project.The test approach describes the types of tests performed and the sequence of tests as executed in the test lab.
