Bugs found earlier cost less to fix than bugs found later. – I might still believe this – only for those bugs that you could reasonably expect to find

Rigorous planning is essential for good testing.
Exploratory testing is unstructured testing, and is therefore un-realiable.
Adopting best practices will guarantee that we do a good job of testing.
Step by step instructions are necessary to make testing a repeatable process.
