Hi Jasmine, you can verify an error message on a webpage using getText() method:

driver = webdriver.Firefox()
driver.implicitly_wait(2)
driver.maximize_window()

driver.get("https://www.amazon.in/")

err_msg = driver.find_element_by_id('a-alert-content').text

assert err_msg = 'Enter your email or mobile phone number'

driver.quit()

Can you please explain it briefly .  In this section i got error "

assert err_msg = 'Enter your email or mobile phone number'
my code is 
err_msg = self.find_element_by_xpath("xpath").text
assert err_msg = "please fill the field"
it showing an error like " end of statement expected"
I guess you have missed out specifying xpath in the code. Check for the syntax of using xpath.
