Customer Review

I loved the platform because it was easy to use. The chapters are so well-designed to provide you a complete understanding of all the aspects of JavaScript. The chapters contain knowledge checks and flashcards for testing the knowledge gained in the chapters.

had the opportunity to test for a few days uCertify CIW: JavaScript Specialist v2.0 course, which helps you to be ready to take the exam. It turns out that the uCertify course was a really great alternative for mastering Javascript, this course has videos, cards, quizzes, good lessons and well explained. Going through the lessons and its content I recalled important concept like DOM manipulation.

The JavaScript Specialist v2.0 course contains rich contents. It started from JavaScript introduction, and comprehensively explained every aspect of the programming language including Variables and Data types, functions, methods, events, control flow, JavaScript DOM, Objects, Hoisting, Closures and more. It teaches modern JavaScript having examples and code snippets written in ES6 standard.
