Certiport Launches Learning and Test Preparation Software for 2007 Microsoft® Office Certifications

Certiprep for 2007 Microsoft® Office Certifications gives test takers authentic exam experience

SALT LAKE CITY – March 4, 2008

Certiport today launched Certiprep for 2007 Microsoft® Office Certifications, certification preparation software for Microsoft Certified Application Specialist exams that offers a comprehensive and authentic exam experience. Certiprep helps round out Certiport's solution for achieving certifications in Word 2007, Excel® 2007 and PowerPoint® 2007.

"Certiprep fills the need for a post-learning assessment that bridges the final gap between learning and certification testing—a crucial step in the certification pathway," said David Saedi, president and CEO of Certiport. "No other test preparation software can better prepare learners for the successful completion of the certification exam."

Certiprep's two tracks of preparation—Learning Mode and Practice Test—give test takers self-paced learning and exam simulation that employs the same concurrent technology used in the certification exams. Certiport testing centers will be able to administer Certiprep through the same engine that delivers the certification exams, simplifying installation and administration. Additionally, testing center personnel can leverage new Web-based reporting features to capture individual and group-based progress toward meeting skill objectives.

The initial release of Certiprep will be available immediately in English with additional language versions to follow. Subsequent updates to Certiprep later this year will include Outlook® 2007 and Access™ 2007. For more information on Certiprep, go to: www.certiport.com/certiprep.
