Furthermore, why would a developer use test startTest () and test stopTest () in Salesforce?
Test . startTest() and Test . stopTest() exist primarily to allow you to reset the governor limits within the context of your test execution and to be able to test asynchronous methods. These two statements cannot be called more than once within a testMethod.

- Use @isTest at the Top for all the test classes.
- Test in bulk: Test to see if your code can run on 200 records at once.
- Avoid Using Hard Coding Ids anywhere in test Class or any apex class.

How do I create a test class in Salesforce?
The key points while writing a test class are:
- You have to start your class with @isTest annotation, then only Salesforce will consider this class as test class.
- Keep your class as Private, and the best practice is to name your test class as your original Class or trigger Name + 'Test'.
