As I said in the paragraph above, MS Training is no easy task to accomplish and it's perfectly understandable that you would want to see tangible evidence that it is indeed worth all that time, effort and money that you'll sink in to it.

21% of all those who answered “greater respect amongstst IT professionals”, another 21% answered “more opportunity for professional advancement” and another 21% answered “Increased work responsibilities”. Alongside that 19% answered “higher base salary” with 5% listing “additional benefits” and 13% recording. “Other questions such as” Has your new skills in demand? “And” the vast majority of those asked answered yes, proof above anything else that Microsoft Certification is defiantly worth your time.
