This site is a very thorough, fun, well laid out and organized training platform. I do think, however, it's extremely important to get all of the content accurate, as it impacts the students ability to feel confident of the material. I haven't taken the exam yet as I would like to study longer than the 15 day trial in order to feel ready, but when I take the exam, I will try and edit this review to mention how I did!
Keithia Williams
I am impressed with what uCertify has to offer. uCertify is a great learning tool for those studying for certifications or to just learn more about the subject-matter. Book material, the interactive Knowledge Checks, end of chapter reviews, live labs and practice tests definitely make it worthwhile to invest in. I did notice a lack of videos in the course, so if you are someone that learns by watching videos, you may need to supplement this course with a video series, but that’s not to take away from how awesome this site is. I like how all the learning material is available under one site, which makes site navigation easy to use. As I will be starting classes at WGU in July, I understand that WGU utilizes uCertify for some of the coursework, so I will definitely provide more of an in-depth review once classes start.
