    Error guessing and exploratory testing are the experience based techniques.

    Error guessing:

    - It is an art of guessing where errors can be hidden. This is purely based on the previous experience and judgement of a tester.

    - It is a method of black box testing.

    Exploratory testing:

    - This testing is a hands-on approach in which testers are involved in minimum planning and maximum test execution.

    - It helps to establish greater confidence in the software. It can be used as a check on the formal test process by helping to ensure that the most serious defects have been found.
