"I found the instructor very knowledgeable and patient. The course content was delivered very well and key points were covered sufficiently. I have learned a lot during this course and have gained valuable experience as this was my first attempt at a Microsoft exam. Some aspects such as powershell and Hyper-V required more hands on experience prior to the course to get the most out of the training."

The process of working on an opportunity may include several customer interactions. How well the sales team manages this stage can mean the difference between a win and a loss.
