I would like to thank uCertify for providing me access to the CompTIA ITF course material, and for allowing me the opportunity to provide feedback on this course for other individuals that aspire to join the IT field.

The uCertify learning model seems to flow well. At the beginning is a pre-assessment, then a chapter for each subject followed by chapter quiz, flash cards, and labs. Most of the labs mimic the latest version of Windows, and a small spot light on Linux. For anyone who is thinking about getting into IT this would be a good place to start. The IT Fundamentals+ covers a broad range of IT subjects from computer repair, software, operating systems, software development, database management, security, and business continuity. There is something in here for anyone thinking of a future in IT.
