Online Training: MeasureUp or Transcender? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Folks,

    For as long as I've been doing Microsoft training I've never done training online. My training has always been either classroom training or self-study.

    However, because of time constraints, I'm about to do online training for the first time, and I know nothing about the online training companies, so I've narrowed my choice to two vendors who I know and trust from their practice tests: MeasureUp and Transcender.

    Therefore, I would be grateful if you would advise me on which of these companies does the better online training for Microsoft certifications. They both charge $149 per course, so cost is not a factor.

    Thanks for all your help.

    James

  • Well, since we've had no recommendations, I think I'll continue studying the way I always have, and forget about trying online training for now.

    As I've been in the field for many years, I have tons of resources on all things Microsoft (including most of the recently released texts), but I wanted to try something new this time around since I thought it would be fun, and it was a pretty cheap too, only $149 per course.

    Anyhow, thanks for all your help. I'm going back to studying the old-fashioned way.

    BTW, the question is still open, so if you post any reasonable response, I'll mark it as the answer.

  • Just my opinion - the Kaplan Transcender/STS practice exams seemed to have tanked in quality compared to days past. There are many more typos and updates are not pushed out nearly as often. I am only speaking about the developer products that I have purchased from them. I just bought an exam last week and was shocked how many typos were in it.

    I would recommend using MeasureUp training instead - that is, if you are still considering it.


    Best wishes, Davin Mickelson
