If you are using Visual Studio Team System Test Edition for testing there is plenty of advice on the Microsoft site to help new testers and advanced practioners. For a start point try out Getting Started with Team System Testing Tools

This section takes you on a tour through the tools and windows of Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition for Software Testers. You will see basic aspects of the Team System testing tools, such as how to create and work with tests, the types of tests that are available, and how to configure the testing tools.

For a range of different testing information on VSTS try the testing type information:
Working with Unit Tests Provides links to topics that describe unit tests and how to create them. Working with Web Tests Describes how to create, edit, run, and view Web tests. Working with Load Tests Describes the uses of load tests, how to edit and run them, how to collect and store load test performance data, and how to analyze load test runs. Working with Manual Tests Describes how to create and run manual tests, the only non-automated test type. Working with Generic Tests Describes how to create and run generic tests. Generic tests wrap external programs and tests that were not originally developed for use in the Team System testing tools.
