    Hi

    I have updated some sections and differentiated between VS 2013 and VS 2012 because at the following URL

    Software Testing with Visual Studio

    www.microsoft.com/.../exam-70-497.aspx

    they state "Starting June 8, 2014, the questions on this exam include content covering Visual Studio 2013."
