Ranorex Basic

This core course provides a comprehensive understanding of using Ranorex Studio as an automated functional testing tool for different environments. You will use Ranorex Recorder to record and playback tests, add validation steps and make your test data driven.

You will build upon fundamental topics as we go. Once tests are created, you will discover and correct common record and playback problems. All topics are supported by hands-on exercises that are based on real-life examples complemented with some best practices.
