'In Circuit' is deceptive. On mine a low reading across an electrolytic in a circuit that also has a low value resistance across it will give a possible false 'Good' indication. That being said, a bad indication dictates further investigation.

Value and ESR are the two most important parameters. Electrolytic with bad ESR will usually also effect its value.

Electrolytic capacitors CAN pass 'value' only meter tests, but still have, for example, bad ESR, which value only meters do NOT test for. Wink
