uCertify – A Review

Being a software programmer, I am always on the look out for certifications and trainings of any sort which will improve my technical abilities and also prepare me for my career ahead. Back when I was at IBM in Bangalore, India, I did plenty of BrainBench certifications and I have to say that they were pretty tough to get through.

A few weeks back, I came across this awesome portal – uCertify which was claiming for “Fastest way of IT Certification”. I was immediately interested and started browsing over the website and saw that they offer most of the technical certification examinations possible. uCertify creates top quality test preparation software for over hundreds of IT certification exams from all major vendors including Microsoft,  IBM, Oracle,  CompTIA,  Cisco, Adobe,  ISC-2,  EC-Council,  LPI,  Project Management Institute, and  CIW.The coolest part of this is that they have something called as ‘PrepKit‘ which you will get access immediately after you enroll, and that takes you through the most detailed process of getting prepared for the certification.

Coming back to my certification, I enrolled for the Oracle Database SQL Expert and immediately got a license key for my PrepKit. It was easy to install and understand how to navigate through the entire session. The PrepKit has 2 major sections or tabs – Learn & Practice / Study Helper.

Learn & Practice – This section has many sub-sections which are neatly segregated and made easy for follow-up and learning. It has around 6 in-depth practice tests comprising of around 70 questions each, followed by a final test and interactive quiz. In addition to these tests and quizzes, they also provide awesome Study Material which will make you well prepared to answer them. They have a section to Track Your Progress in the tests and see how ready you are to take up the certification.

Study Helper – This section is nothing but the Study material section but a lot more categorized into the broad subject matter topics of the chosen examination.

Does the thought of a test send shivers down your spine? Rather walk on hot coals than take a test? Love to learn, but need help studying? If you want a simple, yet powerful studying tool for you or for your students that is available round the clock, then uCertify is your answer.

Quoting uCertify“At the core of every uCertify Prepkit is our powerful PrepEngine that allows for a sophisticated level of customized learning.

Anticipating your needs and customizing the material to your strengths and weaknesses is at the core of our unique engine.

Some of the Features that I would like to summarize would be as below:

  1. It’s Simple
  2. User Friendly Interface
  3. Personalize to your learning style
  4. Informative Dashboard
  5. Guided Learning
  6. Exhaustive Study material and Reference Guides
  7. Learning & Study Modes available
  8. How-To Guides and Real Time Projects
Tracking – The Track your progress section allows you to see how well you have been performing in those tests and what is the level of knowledge gain in the subject matter. It allows you to see and analyze if you are prepared enough to take up the final certification and complete it without having to fear about not being prepared well.

I am sure if you are a technical person, you would already be checking out this website for more details on how to enroll and which certification to choose from.
