Customer Testimonials

Lee McWhorter
I feel the uCertify CompTIA Server+ course was quite solid. Since I’m an instructor, I could not help but grade it. I give it an A- overall for both content and the learning management system itself. The content is thorough in its coverage of the exam objectives and I feel added value to my own personal test preparation. The uCertify learning management system is also impressive, with numerous features to help guide and motivate students to complete the course and be prepared for their exam. In both cases, I have a few points of constructive criticism which I will detail in the next section. There was also one glaring error in the content itself. But to recap, I found the course a solid tool for preparing for the Server+ exam and think others will as well.
