    Hi all i am a new member to the forum, which seems an excellent resource, so thankyou for that.

    I am currently studying for the A+ essentials cert and i was just wondering if that is a good choice or would one of the other variations of the A+ be more usefull to me.

    Any comments would be massively appreciated.

    Thanks

    Welcome to CF :)

    The A+ cert is a very good starting place. You will need to pass both the A+ Essentials (601) and one of the other 3 electives (602,603,604) to obtain the A+ Cert. Passing the Essentials alone doesnt get you anything.

    If you have any questions, ask away! :)

    ah i see, so which of the three others is best to choose and is it based on the knowledge gained from the essentials part of the course?

    Normally, you'd be looking to take the IT Technician exam - the 602, unless your job or employer requires that you take 603 or 604 instead.

    Hi Welcome :)

    Most people choose the IT technician pathway which is 220-602 the 603 and 604 are not normally done unless your job requires it.
