*General testing principles:Principle 1 - Testing shows presence of defectsTesting can show that defects are present, but cannot prove that there are no defects.Principle 2 - Exhaustive testing is impossibleTesting everything (all combinations of inputs and preconditions) is not feasible except for trivial cases.Principle 3 - Early testingTesting activities should start as early as possible in the SDLC.Principle 4 - Defect clusteringA small number of modules contain most of the defects discovered during pre-release testing.Principle 5 - Pesticide paradoxThe test cases need to be regularly reviewed and revisedPrinciple 6 - Testing is context dependent Testing is done differently in different contexts (safety-critical software is tested differently from e-commerce site)Principle 7 - Absence-of errors fallacyFinding and fixing defects does not help if the system built is unusable and does not fulfill the users' need and expectations.* - from Syllabus for Cerified Tester

Besides the more fundamental principles supplied by AN_QA from the syllabus for Certified Tester (which are darn good principles, by the way), many testing principles depend on the software development methodology that is being employed in an organization.  For example, the testing principles associated with the waterfall approach are significantly different than those associated with agile development. I like the context-driven principles offered presented by Kaner, Bach, and Pettichord in the book entitled, "Lessons Learned in Software Testing: A Context-Driven Approach.CONTEXT-DRIVEN PRINCIPLES- The value of any practice depends on its context.- There are good practices in context, but there are no best practices.- People, working together, are the most important part of any project’s context.- Projects unfold over time in ways that are often not predictable.- The product is a solution. If the problem isn’t solved, the product doesn’t work.- Good software testing is a challenging intellectual process.- Only through judgment and skill, exercised cooperatively throughout the entire project, are we able to do the right things at the right times to effectively test our products. I also like the following principles described in The Agile Manifesto.THE AGILE MANIFESTO- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools- Working software over comprehensive documentation- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation- Responding to change over following a planWhile there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.
