uCertify is a fantastic piece of software! The only one I've found similar only offers practice exams, while you guys offer both practice exam questions plus study notes and nifty ways to monitor your progress. Nothing else even slightly compares and your guides are a great help, especially as there is so little in the way of helpful material out there.
It's a fantastic piece of software, keep it up!
