    hi,

    Test Startegy:As the name specifies, it is a organised plan or method followed to achieve a particular goal in the testing activities conducted. It is mostly focused on the risk involved with the cost and timelines constraints. It deals with test management and testing tools involved.

    Test Scenario: An outline of a planned work, i.e covering particular areas of the applicationthey can be as simple as a diagram for testing environment or tehy could be a description written in prose. These are totally different from test cases, test cases are single steps and scenarios cover number of steps.


    Thanks
