IMHO, Exhaustive testing, testing all the possible test cases (which is in many cases not possible due to time and budget factors)
Non-exhaustive testing is executing the chosen test cases based on prirotiy. This is normally followed in many testing projects.

Exhaustive testing- Testing all possible scenarios(all permutation and combination of functionalities) is called exhaustive testing.

Non-Exhaustive testing: Testing only postive & negative scenarios, which belongs to requirement and based upon the type of testing is to perform, is called non-exhaustive testing.
