    so i went to book my A+ exam after reading the recommended books ( on these forums ), only to find there are four separate exams:

    * International A+ Essentials (220-601) Test Voucher Bundle
    * International A+ IT Technician (220-602) Test Voucher Bundle
    * International A+ Remote Technician (220-603) Test Voucher Bundle
    * International A+ Depot Technician (220-604) Test Voucher Bundle

    do i have to pass all 4 exams to obtain the A+ cert????????????

    also, im looking at doing the MCDST CERT.just to confirm i have to pass
    Exam 70-271 and Exam 70-272 to become certified and nothing else. ( no other exams or prerequisites )


    thanks for any help :):):):)

    No you don't.

    The second exam you take will depend upon which role you see yourself doing in the future. You should really read the official CompTIA website:

    Well - your question is answered in the Mike Meyers book. :biggrin

    You just need two - 601 plus one of the others. The usual recomendation is to go for 602 unless there is good reason to choose otherwise.

    Yep, just two exams are needed. Most people will take the 602 as their second exam. Good luck!
