    I stumbled across Ucertify and having read a bit on their web site about cert prep guides was kind of interesting to find it's not too pricey either.

    The big question is are their study preps any good and have you used this or know of someone that has and lastly would you recommend their products. Thanks in advance:)

    I've looked at them before and used one of their free trials.

    This has come up before on the forum, and I think they were listed as 'goodies', although possibly not up to transcender, measureup, and (ahem) bosun standards.

    I can't tell you what they are like, I had a look on certgaurd as I had never heard of them and the certgaurd search said they were being investigated. That does not mean they are a BD so don't panic.

    Ucertify is on the safe site list now.

    Ucertify aren't braindumps (see here), however there have been a few complaints in the past about their hard sales and marketing ways (see here). I haven't heard anything in more recent months, so all I can say is give them a go, if you want and let us know what their like :)

    They are most certainly NOT on the "safe site list"... as Ken linked, they've been tagged for Unethical Behavior... including forum spamvertising. :dry Anyone here want to support THAT by giving them your money?

    They're shady, and in my book, they always will be.

    Always remember that when you go cheap, you tend to get "cheap"... all part of the "get what you pay for" mantra, which is usually quite accurate.

    They may be legit... but they're still unethical. Use them if you want, but buyer beware... you endorse their behavior when you buy their product.

    Where have you been, mate? Boson has done MS practice tests for years. And we're just about to release the ExSim Max practice exam product for Vista 70-620.

    Sorry my mistake as I did not check the correctness of this just knew of heart that they are well known for cisco sims and practice. I'd have a look and if the price is right then hey! Boson it is then:)

    We agree. My statement was they where on the safe list, which means they are not braindumps in an answer to GBL where he stated that they were under investigation.
    I said nothing about ethics.

    Keep in mind that I cannot wholeheartedly endorse the older ExSim products, as they were done with contract writers many years ago, and I haven't edited any of them. The newer ExSim Max products are top-notch quality, and I can recommend them without any hesitation. :)

    Well, "Safe List", to me, meant not only "safe to use" but also "safe to buy from".

    As far as "safe to use" is concerned... I'd have to look at their quality. 8)

    The forum article is called "safe sites", so that's the term I used.
