MeasureUp Wins Redmond Magazine Readers Choice Award for Best Exam Preparation

Certification exam preparation materials named ISV Winner and Preferred Product by Redmond Magazine readers

Certiport (, the leading certification solution provider for the global workforce and academic markets, today announced that MeasureUp won Redmond Magazine's 2010 Readers' Choice ISV Award Winner for "Best Exam Preparation Vendor".

Certiport acquired MeasureUp, the global leader in IT practice tests and assessment services in May 2010, and this is the second Redmond Readers Choice Award for the company (2008).

"It is gratifying to know that our product quality has been recognized by Redmond Magazine readers," said Kevin Brice, Chief Strategy Officer, Certiport. "This award validates our MeasureUp test preparation as the best in the industry and helps individuals become more employable by validating sought after skills."

MeasureUp practice tests stand out for their innovative use of simulation questions, comprehensive explanations, complete coverage of exam objectives, multiple delivery modes, and in-depth reporting. MeasureUp has been a long-term, preferred practice test provider for Microsoft certifications.

Redmond sent its Readers Choice survey to 40,000 subscribers of the magazine. Redmond is focused on the extensive vendor community that expands on what Microsoft already does; because Microsoft products routinely win in many categories, they developed the ISV Winner award to recognize the leading ISVs whose wares finished just behind those of Microsoft in their standings.

"We know our MeasureUp Microsoft certification preparation materials are the best in the industry, and we are pleased that Redmond readers agree," said Ray Kelly, Chief Executive Officer, Certiport.

In addition to being the only Microsoft® Certified Practice Test Partner through Certiport's expansive network of more than 10,000 centers in 142 countries worldwide, MeasureUp provides a complete certification solution for the official Microsoft Office certification programs.
