What a wonderful read and wonderful way to pass the exam...I am very greatful to ucertify that I pass the CFC0 certification exam.Paul J.
I just want to let you know that I am very pleased with the UCertify prepkits. Being a career-changer it is important to me to not only catch up with the world of IT but to achieve certifications whenever possible. In the past 18 months, I have been able to earn 3 CompTIA certifications- (currently prepping for the next cert). Not sure I would have been able to pull this off without this excellent preparation material. UCertify certainly is my favorite \"\"study buddy\"\"! Thank you,Rebecca Braunert-Plunkett
This is a good guide. If you are a beginner to PDI this is a great place to start. I recommend that you can pass the PDI exam with this kit only though.Timothy Walker
