    - Requirements testing deals with validating the requirements given in the SRS of the software system.

    - All the requirements are not stated explicitly, they can either be implicit or explicit.

    - Explicit requirements are stated and documented as a part of the requirement specification.

    - Implied or implicit requirements are those that are not documented but assumed to be incorporated in the system.

    - The precondition for requirements testing is a detailed review of the requirements specification.

    - Requirements review ensures that they are consistent, correct, complete, and testable.

    - This process ensures that some implied requirements are converted and documented as explicit requirements, thereby bringing better clarity to requirements and making requirements based testing more effective.

    - Some organizations follow a variant of this method to bring some more details into requirements.

    - All explicit requirements (from SRS) and implied requirements (inferred by the test team) are collected and documented as "Test Requirements Specification"(TRS).

    - Requirements based testing can also be conducted based on such a TRS, as it captures the testers perspective as well.

    - However for simplicity, we should consider SRS and TRS to be one and the same.
