In general, it is a nice product that can be helpful for one to prepare for an exam.
Kennedy Chimwanda
The pattern of the uCertify CCSP course is just similar to the real exam that means it will help you to prepare yourself for the real exam. The course has covered every single detail that any CCSP student must know. A more interesting thing I would like to specially mention is, ‘Even If you are an absolute beginner they have provided all the modules to make it easy to learn'
Leighton Johnson, CISSP, CISM
I reviewed the UCertify based CCSP online course recently and found it covered the required material in good detail for all 6 domains of the CCSP structure. The beginning of the course covers the initial introductory well, with the highlighting of the examination criteria in good depth.
