Identify the Break Points

Break points are the situations where the system starts behaving abnormally. It does not give the output it is supposed to give. So by identifying such situations also testing can be done. Use boundary values or invariance for finding the break points of the application. In most of the cases it is observed that system would work for normal inputs or outputs. Try to give input that might be the ideal situation or the worse situation.
Example: consider an application build to generate the reports for the accounts department of a company depending on the criteria given. In such cases try to select a worse case of report generation for all the employees for their service. The system might not behave normally in the situation.
Try to input a large input file to the application that provides the user to upload and save the data given.
Try to input 500 characters in the text box of the web application.
Thus by trying to identify the extreme conditions or the breakpoints would help the tester to uncover the hidden bugs. Such cases might not be covered in the normal scripted testing. Hence this helps in finding the bugs which might not covered in the normal testing.
