When you start software testing, remember ...

1) All tests should be traceable to requirements.
Use requirement traceability matrix to trace test cases which you need to execute when do testing. It will give you confidence that all requirements have been covered.

2) Remember pareto principle – 80% defects are in 20% code.
So, drill down the module/page/feature more and more, where you found even a single bug. Don't stop testing after finding a bug, but test that module/page/feature more and more.

3) Testing should be done with incremental approach (unit ->integration ->system)

Unit testing -> Developers
Integration -> Both
System -> Testers
