A Few weeks ago the Guys from company http://www.ucertify.com/ contacted me to review the Exam Guides for SharePoint 2010 and I thought about taking a look at it. But due to a bit busy schedule I was not able to review it. But I was able to spend couple of hours into it and though about putting it up here.
My initial thought about the Tool was that It must be a collection of of around 200 exam collection which in our world are known as “Dumps” but after looking at the tool my mind changed completely.
UCertify Exam Engine is a coolest exam preparation stuff that I have ever seen. Below are some of the features that I would like to put here.
As seen above the home screen is filled up with lot of things. But two main sections are Learn and Practice and Study Helper. There are so many ways you can test your skills by taking so many types of tests.
The bottom part is the main thing which allows us to prepare the SharePoint 667 Exam the real way. The best area is Study Notes. If you are a SharePoint Admin or developer you need to understand various SharePoint Terms related to administration and configuration. Study notes area is filled up with many type of Questions. An Example is given below.
In the bottom of each Notes section you also can test you knowledge related to this section
Another nice part is how to part which contains everything you want to do before you can appear in the exam. e.g. How to install SharePoint, how to create Web application, creating Service applications using powershell and User Interace, working with Search etc.
the advantage of this tool is that you will not be required to open anything else other than this. You can read the stuff and practice at the same time.
The most important part of the tool is the questions part. The exam tool for 70-667 contains all kind of questions that one would like to answer before appearing for the exam. The questions are written exactly in the same format of the actual exams so once you use the tool it will be very easy for you to do actual test.
Take a look at below questions
The toughest part of questions is the multiple answers questions which you have to arrange exactly according to steps performed on the site or central administration. After taking this test I am sure no one will forget what are the exact steps to create a web application form central admin. You can try to answer by yourself.
Later part of the tool that I liked is the study helper. It contains a book like material to help prepare for SharePoint Configuration Exam 70-667
Each part cover the exam according to Exam guide on the exam web site. This gives you great way to prepare the exam rather than learning in the scattered way.
Each part is link which takes you to its details, how to’s and Questions. You can learn, practice and test yourself at the same place.
There is also an area to check your progress during the preparation. This will keep you on your toes all the time.
See the example below for Test Readiness Report.
If you are planning to go for SharePoint Configuration Exam 70-667 and looking for a perfect way to prepare for the exam I would strongly recommend you to buy the UCertify Exam Guide. It is the most convenient way to prepare for the exam legally rather than using dumps where you will not learn anything and passing the exam will not give you any knowledge.
I would also like to thank UCertify guys for giving me the opportunity to review and for their patience on waiting for me to put the review on my blog.
