Default Help with deciding if to purchase this book


I purchased "Professional Application Lifecycle Management with Visual Studio 2012" and thought it was an excellent book.

My only issue with it, was that so much of the content was targeted at MS Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate users - which I didn't realise before I received my copy

I wondered if anyone could help let me know if the same exists for this book - will I end up frustrated at just how much of its content doesn't actually apply to me, and my humble copy of MS Visual Studio 2012 Professional?

Many thanks for any help and guidance

First, let me apologize for the missing table of contents and index on the Professional Team Foundation Server 2012 page. I think having at least the TOC handy would help and when I started to answer your question I saw those missing and have asked someone to add them. I've also gone ahead and attached the table of contents here as it might help answer some of what you need.

So there are a couple of issues to deal with:
The parts of this that have to do with Visual Studio functions that aren't in Visual Studio Professional and require VS Ultimate or VS Test Professional, those limits will still apply:

But, as far as TFS goes, you can connect a ton of different IDEs to it - it supports old versions of VS, it supports Eclipse.
