    A+ is nothing to be worked up over.

    Hardware test took me 3 min, the system shut off, and I was like" of f*ck I failed", turns out I passed.

    When I wrote the software exam it too me 5 min, and the same thing, system just shut down, figured i failed that one too, since i didn't bother to study for it. (Work paid)


    The tests are easy, as long as you have some experience inside a PC. For the guy who said about compucollege students finding it hard. You would be surprised how many students we had work for us from compucollege that were A+ certified and didn't know the first thing once the case was opened.

    Its easy as hell to memerize questions, its another thing to actually be able to prove you should be A+

    A+ should be a test given to people before they're allowed to BUY a computer!

    That being said, I've never taken it because I don't want to pay for it. I'm going to try to coerce work into paying for it someday I hope. What's the cost these days?

    A+ Certified. It's pretty easy, a lot of common sense.

    I think A+ is runing just over 400 for both tests. Considering the ease of the test and the amount of time it actually takes a person to write it, 400 bucks is a big piss off.
