The software development business is a fast paced world.
If you don't update your knowledge you'll easily become less relevant.
A certification can help you differentiate yourself in today's competitive job market, broaden your employment opportunities by displaying your advanced skills, and result in higher earning potential.
uCertify is a company that provides IT certification preparation PrepKits for all major companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Sun, Oracle, CompTIA, Cisco, Adobe, ISC-2, EC-Council, LPI and CIW.
They kindly offered me the opportunity to review one of their PrepKits. Since I've been developing web solutions with C# for 4 years, I chose the "Web Applications with C# .NET" PrepKit.
After I followed the uCertify plan, from beginning to the end, I felt much more confident about my .NET skills. I felt this way because not only I've refreshed my memory about important concepts and tested my knowledge with practice tests, but I also reviewed my performance so I could fine tune the areas that needed more work.
I invite you to come with me and discover what a uCertify PrepKit is all about.
This is not another exam preparation software. uCertify's preparation kits offer much more than practice tests.
uCertify offers a learning platform where you can enhance, test and take your knowledge to the next level.
This learning platform is based on a plan that is divided into four critical areas:
- Study and learn
- Practice tests
- Track your progress
- Enhance your understanding
Study and learn
An ancient Chinese proverb says tell me and I'll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I'll understand.
That is exactly what uCertify does in the Study and learn area.

The uCertify PrepKit comes with Diagnostic Tests that will help you find out how well prepared you are for the real exams and identify your weak points. This way, you can build up your weaknesses until they become your strong points.
You can choose your preferences for the test such as the number of questions, the test duration and the passing score.
