Exam Cram 2 Titles Go Electronic
Adaptive Learning Systems Inc., a developer of test-prep products for IT and financial markets, has inked a deal with Que Publishing for the exclusive electronic rights to the Exam Cram 2 titles and the Que Training Guide Series, bringing some of the most popular certification preparation materials to an electronic format.
Exam Cram has been quite popular with those studying for various certifications, and it was the first line of cert-prep materials to exceed the 1 million mark in sales. Que Publishing acquired Exam Cram 2 late in 2002. The Exam Cram 2 books are based closely on certification exams, mapping to those exams’ objectives so that IT professionals with more experience can prepare for certification exams without having to sit through classes or read lengthy tomes on subjects they already understand. For less experienced IT pros, the Training Guide series offers a comprehensive overview of the topics covered by certification exams, providing a more in-depth look at the subject matter covered on the exams.
Kevin Forcier, president of Adaptive Learning Systems, said that combining technology from Adaptive Learning with the content from Exam Cram 2 and Que Training Guides will provide a new format for a great product in high demand by IT professionals studying for certification. To sell the new product, Adaptive Learning Systems created a new company, Exam Force. Exam Force will sell the electronic versions of Exam Cram 2 and the Que Training Guide Series under the name “Cram Master.”
Forcier added that between 30 and 35 titles will be available immediately. An additional 15 to 20 titles are scheduled to be available by the end of 2003. Titles will cover numerous certifications, including Microsoft, Cisco, CompTIA, Check Point, Citrix, (ISC)2, LPI, Oracle, Red Hat, Sun and more.
