  • Provide guidance from Microsoft, the creator of Microsoft certification exams
  • Target IT professional-level exam candidates with content focused on their needs, not "one-size-fits-all" content

    Feature Thought Experiments to guide candidates through a set of "what if?" scenarios, and prepare them more effectively for Pro-level style exam questions
  • Explore big picture thinking around the planning and design aspects of the IT pro's job role
