Review: uCertify PMI PMP v-5 Online PrepKit
uCertify is a provider of test preparation software for 400+ IT certification exams from 18 different Testing agencies including Microsoft & PMI. uCertify offered me access to an online PrepKit in exchange for an unbiased review. I tried their PrepKit for the PMI Project Management Professional (PMP) course and found it to be comprehensive and useful.
For me the best part of the PMP v-5 online PrepKit is the collection of 710 Practice Questions with full explanations. Besides that, there are 110 Interactive Quizzes & a Pre-Assessment Test. The Practice Questions can be taken in Test, Learn & Review mode. There is also review study material based on the Fifth edition of PMBOK which includes Tips & Flash Cards to highlight points important for passing the PMP exam. Test history & performance analytics reports help in gauging your progress, identify the areas you have mastered and help you focus on areas which need improvement to pass the actual exam. The PrepKit is a a confidence booster and great complement to the PMBOK Guide which is essential reading.
There are some grammar issues here and there but as the course material is continuously updated, they will probably go away. The test interface is neat but not accessible with the keyboard. It could have been beneficial to navigate through the practice questions & tests with arrow keys. To their credit however, the site is responsive and well-designed. It is easy to jump to topics of interest easily. The PMP v-5 online PrepKit costs USD 139.99 or INR 7606.47. As it requires Internet to access, you will also have to factor in Internet costs but that's probably a non-issue these days considering its ubiquity.
Will this PMP v-5 online PrepKit help you pass the exam? I don't know. Certification watchdog CertGuard rates it well. Also considering that they offer a 100% money-back guarantee and have decent study material and lots of practice questions, it is worth trying out. uCertify offers a free evaluation version of its Prepkits with limited features.
