A consultation is a formal discussion process that involves two or more parties. It is a meeting or conference in which opinions are exchanged and advice is given. During a consultation, participants deliberate, debate, and make decisions. For instance, if a doctor tells you that your severe allergy to blueberries has been cured, it would be wise to consult another doctor before indulging in the forbidden fruit.
Consultations are also an essential part of the process for making informed decisions, such as when preparing for the fourth edition of C1 Advanced.
