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.”
