Customer Review

The User Interface Designer Course gave me an even better insight into Web Design and User Experience that I didn't know before. The course used different learning techniques (Videos, Reading, Flashcards, Quizzes, etc.). My favorite part of the tool was having "pop-quizzes" at the end of each learning subject to make sure I understood what was just read. I would rate this course 5 out of 5 stars.

I loved the platform because it was easy to use. The chapters are so well-designed to provide you a complete understanding of all the aspects of JavaScript. The chapters contain knowledge checks and flashcards for testing the knowledge gained in the chapters.

Recently I've had a chance to go through the course "CIW: JavaScript Specialist v2.0", at uCertify. Overall, the course is full of valuable information, presented in an accessible way. One of the nice features is a great preliminary test for skill assessment, telling you the areas you should focus on.
