    Well I passed the 220-601 test today got a score of 840.

    Is the 220-602 harder then the 601 exam?

    Well I guess that's good to hear.

    Does the 602 get more into hardware then the 601?

    The 601 did not seem that hard but there were a lot of questions that were worded strangely or had some strange answers to them. I honestly wasn't expecting to get a score of 840 I though I would get one in the lower 740s but then again I'm so use to taking these practice tests were every answer is worth like 1 or 2.0% percent of the grade and you need 80 to 90 to pass them. But I guess it doesn't hurt to be over prepared.

    It was more hardware orientated for me with firewall questions but your exam could be completely different so it's best to study asmuch as you can.

    Well I took the 220-602 exam today and passed it. Not by as big of a margin though only got a 730 but a pass is a pass.

    Know my last question is how long is this cert good for?
    I'm going to be in college for the next 2-3 more years and probably won't be getting into a higher job (although I'm thinking of using this cert to get into a job like firedog or geeksquad untill then) position until I'm out. But in 2-3 years will an employer tell me this A+ is no good because its not the latest updated test and I have to take it again to update it? I have the same question for the network+ which I'm studying now. I know there going to release an updated version some time the middle of 2009.

    Congrats on the pass... but be careful of what you reveal... you DID sign a non-disclosure/confidentiality agreement, after all.

    I removed that section then.

    I didn't put any real questions or answers from the test there just topics but its better to be safe then sorry.

    I was planning on taking the Net+ next.

    the A+ lasts for a lifetime whereas some MS exams have to be retaken every 3 years or so.

    I thought that the current ones last until the products are no longer supported. But not many people bother renewing. Ie not many MCSE 2000's bother updating to 2003/8 or find that companies made it a requirement

    I did hear that the next generation of certs would need renewing, however, i didn't realise that they had got there yet.

    and i though would only be

    MCTS
    MCITP and MCPD
    MCA

    I don't know if this is true but this is what i found

    and then

    Q. Are you going to start retiring any of the existing credentials (MCDST, MCP, MCSE, MCAD, and so on)?

    A. No. These new policies apply only to the MCTS, MCITP, and MCPD credentials-the new generation of certifications. There are no current plans to retire any of our existing credentials.
