Use eax as a general register.
Use ecx as counter
Use edx in the usage of EDX:EAX
Use esp for data on stack
Use esi for address of string source
Use edi for address of string destination

Does this make your code professional?

In principle, all registers are equal except eip and esp. However some opcodes implictly use specific registers (eg. mul, div, movs), mostly due to the processor's 8086 roots. Also windows APIs only preserve ebx/esi/edi/ebp and stackframes often use ebp.

Knowing this doesn't make you an asm professional. Even knowing every opcode and its use from the top of your head won't, the trick is to use them in a clever way with the right algorithms. That's something you'll have to learn by doing it, looking at other people's optimizations and just trying.

Something I have extracted from the intel document

Define what you mean by "code professional". No book is going to teach you how to do that, that is a skill that can only be learnt by experience.

I just use what register you can use under a situation, although in certain cases you have to retain the Intel definition of the usage of registers, I think many programmers here will recommend that you do not in most cases, if it will benefit your program in speed, size etc.
