Software Testing is the process of identifying the defects in the software and hence improving the quality of software. There are several testing techniques and combinations of these testing techniques existing. This paper discusses the defect detection efficiency of the combined approach of scripted and exploratory testing by comparing the projects which are done using only scripted testing and the combination of scripted and exploratory testing.
