Where can I find more information about this exam?
For any individuals that may be planning to obtain their certification from CompTIA for the IT Fundamentals course, the uCertify study guide is very beneficial. I do not plan to complete the certification myself, but I believe the study guide layout is very simple to follow and assists somebody that may be starting out in the IT career field.
The course overall goes extremely in-depth on a wide range of topics and they have hands-on labs that you can complete to have a better understanding of the course material. I have no doubt if you were to complete their study guide that you would be more than prepared to pass the CompTIA ITF exam.
I would like to thank uCertify for providing me access to the CompTIA ITF course material, and for allowing me the opportunity to provide feedback on this course for other individuals that aspire to join the IT field.
uCertify gave me the great opportunity to take this course. It started off with a assessment that was 50 questions long. After the assessment you really get a feel for how much you already know. After being in the IT field for a couple of years now I was surprised by how many I got wrong but honestly unless you constantly study these things it is easy to forget. After the assessment I began going through the lessons. After each one I took the quizzes and moved onto the next lesson. Each lesson has flash cards you can study with. Definitions can't be all stories but it was explained well enough to where I didn't feel like I was reading a dictionary and getting definition after definition. At the end a final test well two tests but really it feels like just one big one. After the test is taken and depending on the score depends if they recommend you taking the certification. Throughout the entire course you have a status meeter. Everything you complete makes your number go up. Once you get to 90 it is recommended you are ready for the certification. I will be honest in my two week assessment I am far from ready for this certification test but I also didn't have a lot of time to dedicate to this course.
The uCertify learning model seems to flow well. At the beginning is a pre-assessment, then a chapter for each subject followed by chapter quiz, flash cards, and labs. Most of the labs mimic the latest version of Windows, and a small spot light on Linux.
For anyone who is thinking about getting into IT this would be a good place to start. The IT Fundamentals+ covers a broad range of IT subjects from computer repair, software, operating systems, software development, database management, security, and business continuity. There is something in here for anyone thinking of a future in IT.
