We pride ourselves on happy customers. Our happy customers tend to be those who pass their certification exams in their first attempt, as you might expect! Read what some of them have to say about our top quality Prepkits.

“I just wanted to say thank you. Yesterday I passed my Oracle SQL Certified Expert 11g exam. Score: 90%. That’s it. I already bought 4 different kits and I plan to buy some more.”

Percy Salazar, on PrepKit 1Z0-047

“I would like to thank the uCertify team for the excellent uCerify tool.

At first, I was impressed by the quality of the content and the way the material is organized. I also found very challenging your approach to give the money back if the candidate didn’t pass in the first attempt. Considering the challenges and the huge scope covered on the PgMP certification, I’ve doubted if it should be possible as I have failed at my first attempt before using your tool.

I am glad to inform you that I can’t request my money back as I have passed the PgMP exam at my first attempt using the tool.

Congratulations to the Team which designed and put together this incredible material which was the turning point on my certification!!”
