comment Black box or white box testing - which do you do first?
I'm not sure what you mean by "black box components" and "white box components" - to me they'r just "components" (that can be tested with or without knowledge of the underlying code or architecture.

comment Concepts: API Level Testing
As far as coding skill goes, you're probably going to have to perform, so spend some time practicing. Pick some common Java APIs and practice testing them. The bigger part of testing is probably in the bullet points, but depending on the org, you will probably have to prove you can code the answer.

comment Differences between Software Quality certification levels?
Glad to help Alex. As far as certs go, we don't require any at MS. The best way I've found to gain competency in testing is to practice testing (including critical thinking, probelem solving, etc.). Or, as you discovered, find some forums to read to supplement your practice - sqaforums is (afaik) the most active forum on the subject.

I'm not sure what happened with my earlier comment - feel like I walked into the wrong bar or something. Surprised nobody flagged my comment for abuse :}
