Bach’s Definition: ‘Any testing to the extent that the tester actively controls the design of the tests as those tests are performed and uses information gained while testing to design new and better tests.’

Which simply can be put as: A type of testing where we explore software, write and execute the test scripts simultaneously.

Exploratory testing is a type of testing where tester does not have specifically planned test cases, but he/she does the testing more with a point-of-view to explore the software features and tries to break it in order to find out unknown bugs.

A tester who does exploratory testing, does it only with an idea to more and more understand the software and appreciate its features. During this process, he/she also tries to think of all possible scenarios where the software may fail and a bug can be revealed.

If requirements are not sufficient then it's needed to explore the application. Once u got the application knowledge you can write the test casesor do testing ......so in oder to get whole application knowledge u will have to do Exploratory Testing
The main objectives of Exploratory Testing are as
1) Finding the different scenatios
2)Finds the diiferent condtions
3)Explor the application understandings

Exploratory testing is test design and test execution at the same time. This is the opposite of scripted testing (predefined test procedures, whether manual or automated). Exploratory tests, unlike scripted tests, are not defined in advance and carried out precisely according to plan.
