I’ve tested the new online version of the uCertify PrepKits that I’ve used before and that I’ve reviewed here. This new online platform means that you don’t need to install anything on your computer to start using the prep kits.
Some of the features of Online PrepEngine are:
- Complete location and device independence: Available online 24x7 or go mobile (supported on all major Smartphones and tablets)
- Digital book integrated with images, videos, audio, quizzes, flash cards, assessments, assignments, study notes and much more
- Powerful Analytics to track and gauge learning effectiveness for students, teachers and school administrators
- Self-Study or Teacher/Mentor assisted learning
- Student-Student & Student-Teacher Collaboration tools
- Customizable roles and access for students, TAs, teachers and administrators
- Simple, yet powerful teacher portals to customize courses, pre-assessments, tests and assignments
- Hassle free, highly available and scalable hosted solution
Additionally, there is another feature ‘Course Advisor’ which is a helpful tool for one who is confused to choose certification exam. This tool will help such person to choose certification based on his/her interested technology, experience level, and education.
As before, I found that this tool is extremely simple to use. I just logged in and went straight to the Courses area where I found the courses that I had available. I open the 77-888 (Microsoft Excel 2010 Expert) and I had many options to follow, like a “Pre-assessment”, where I had 15 question to test and assess my strengths & weaknesses, a “Practice” mode with 74 questions, a “Quiz” with 101 questions, “Flash Cards” with 89 flashcards as well as, among others, a “Final Test” to test your knowledge and make you a final test to see if you could pass the official exams.
The online platform has a good design and it’s very intuitive to use. You can find hundreds of courses and certifications here. The value of the kits remains very good and I think that it’s a good value for money if you’re thinking on going for any IT certification, I’m sure that you will find here the prep kit to help you train and test your knowledge
