Here’s what Pete said:

“Being a web developer, I have been thinking about taking the “M70-315 for Web Applications with C# .NET”, and uCertify has a prep course on exactly that topic (along with a couple of hundred other certification preps which I am not going to go into detail for. Which is why I downloaded and tried out this Prep Kit to see how much I know already and what I need to brush up on for the exam.

The thing that I loved about the Prep Application was how easy to use and common sense the interface was. Let’s face it, none of us would want to learn a whole new complicated application just to prepare for certification, which I am willing to bet is exactly what the uCertify people had in mind when they created this Prep Application. The Application is divided into two main sections: Study and Learn and Practice Test.”

Agraj has completed his graduation in Computer Science from Delhi University and later, he has also completed MCA from Delhi University as well. Now, he is working as a Software Engineer. He loves making friends, reading books, learning new technologies, and writing blogs, whatever he gets the time. After reviewing the uCertify PrepKit for the exam SCJP 5.0, he concluded that “Although it is an excellent kit to give you a proper feel of the actual exam; it is equipped with some easy and some tough (read tricky) questions as well just as the actual paper would. But, do not think that you need just this PrepKit to clear the paper! What you also need is a javac (Java compiler) to practice and coding. I strongly recommend understanding the involved concepts and coding by hand (not by IDE), then take these useful tests to gain confidence as the actual exam looks almost the same.”
