In this chapter, you learned how manual testing compares to automated testing. You must make informed decisions with regard to your testing strategy because it greatly affects your bottom line in terms of time and resources,
You also learned how to plan and map out the test cases specific to manual tests. You then explored the manual test support in Team System, including how to generate tests in the IDE, creating custom test templates, running manual tests, and communicating the results with Team Foundation Server.
If you are interested in alternative testing methodologies, Michael Hunter (a Microsoft Test Technical Lead) has compiled a useful list of application tests you can use to create a comprehensive test plan. Visit http://www.blogs.msdn.com/micahel/articles/175571.aspx.
In the next chapter, you'll learn how to create custom generic tests that integrate external third-party testing tools seamlessly with Team System's test framework.
