Comments on: uCertify review Brief articles by Kai Witte Sun, 28 May 2017 08:52:01 +0000 hourly 1 By: Anonymouse Fri, 31 May 2013 13:39:33 +0000 Just taken and failed my 70-513 exam. Having used uCertify for the majority of study I can wholeheartedly recommend avoiding this pile of junk. Like others have commented, a lot of answers are wrong, many are in bad English with sections copied randomly from MSDN, often out of context and it only covers the basics – the actual exam is in a LOT more depth – be warned! Will be asking for a refund but I’m not holding my hopes up.

By: Munim Tue, 10 Jan 2012 17:42:24 +0000 Hi,

I am trying to take A+ 220-701 & 702 exams and looking for an reliable prepkit. I was using Google to search for a prepkit and I ended up in the ucertify website. Their prepkit software seems nice and helpful but all the comments here, kinda put me in an undecided condition. Has anyone tried their full version A+ prepkit? Does that also contain wrong answers? Please let me know.


By: Justin Mon, 06 Jun 2011 18:23:26 +0000 I bought a Exam Prep for the MS 070-448 exam and found a large number of questions that are incorrect. So much that I have little confidence in the content. How can a company charge $120 for material that is wrong. I would not recommend any exam preps by this company and if I don’t get my money back from them, I am going to sue. If anyone is interested in a class action, please contact me at

I do not know that particular prep kit, but given the poor reviews on other uCertify products I would advise against it unless you find a positive review.

The cert is now called “Oracle Certified Professional, Java EE 5 Web Services Developer”, and I know how hard it is to find a simulator for it.

One source of quality questions is this: It’s only 108 questions and it costs something, but I believe it’s a good start.

It’s really hard to get study material for OCPJWS 5.


By: Kamesh Thu, 14 Apr 2011 11:55:27 +0000 Hi,
I am planning to buy the kit for SCX-310-230 Sun certified webservice developer. I could not find any user reviews on the quality of the ucertify about this prep kit. Please advice.

I am planning to take up Zend PHP .3 certification exam. I am planning to get ucertify prep kit for the same.

However, I could not find any user reviews on the quality of the ucertify prep kit for Zend PHP 5.3. Is there anyone who has used this kit for their PHP exam. Pls reply.

By: Garry Sat, 29 Jan 2011 06:04:46 +0000 I purchased the uCertify prep for the GSEC exam. NONE of the questions were even close. It did not help at all.

By: Rakesh Sivan Fri, 22 Oct 2010 02:58:49 +0000 I do agree with certain point mentioned in the blog, like the GUI, exam simulator etc etc.. But see a large gap in the credibility of their material. Ultimately a person who is willing to write an exam would want to pass with good marks. From my personal experience I don’t think uCertify materials can provide you with that confidence.

After purchasing their material once and preparing for same, I came across certain gaps in the materials when some of friends who wrote the same exam came up with totally different set of questions. Now the funny part. I contacted the uCertify team to check about this, along with the sample questions which I collected from my friend’s memory. The uCertify team assured me that they will rectify the trouble. After two weeks they release another version of the course material with all the sample questions I provided them. Does this sound some kind of uncertainty ??

As per their offer, they give you training material, agreed. But do these worth the offer they made.. is something one should cross check.

By: Nat Wed, 06 Oct 2010 21:39:12 +0000 Hello there,

I just wanted to drop a few comments on my own, even though this conversation seems to be months old.

I’ve been using uCert prep software, full version, for a few months now. I’ve been targeting MS 77-605 exam, aka Access 2007. My exam is coming up in less than 3 weeks, and I’ve been scoring each test in high 80%s, which is not bad. I must say that I did some research online about uCert, and all the reviews I’ve found have been positive. I also checked their BBB site to see if there are any complaints, and the company is in a good standing, with A+ grade, which is the highest possible.

Now, when it comes to the actual application, I have not found any typos, or errors, except that there are one or two questions in the test portion which have no questions spelled out at all! Since you can check what the correct answer is, at that point it lists what the question is as well. By now I memorized it, but I think that it should be fixed.

I found a comment on one other IT blog where it says that uCert does not resemble the actual MS exam. Having said so, I think it is a good prep engine that offers many options and questions to learn from. I would not heavily rely on it to pass my exam, however I spend daily about couple of hours going through their tests.

I hope this helps!

as you can read above, Pete from uCertify promised in his post on May 22, 2009 that many things had been fixed. Martijn and I tested it again, and there were still many errors. So I don’t know if it’s worth being tested again.

If you do, please keep us up to date :-)
