    Has anyone out there got any links to sites possibly offering discount vouchers for the A+ exams. Plus, do Comptia do second shot offers or similar?

    Im going to book the exam before the August cut off, so any help would be appreciated. Plus the exams are so damn expensive!

    Hi,

    Have you tried going to the CompTia Website i know they have vouchers on there you can buy - Online Store. Not sure if they do second shot offers.

    Have you also tried Professormessor, that is a really useful Website?

    What August cut off are you referring too? Are they changing the exam?

    If you are referring to the fact you have to pass before then to be certified for life, I think originally they said august but now you have until the 1st of Jan 2011.

    They already have changed the exam. However, at the moment, both the old (2006) and new (2009) versions are available. The 2006 version will no longer be available in the UK after August.

    Most sites that do discount vouchers even they they do them for the UK and europe are US based and since the 2006 exam retired in the US in February then they are only selling vouchers that relate to the new exams.

    However you could try contacting gracetechsolutions customer support to see if they have any available for the old exams however they are not advertsied on their site any more. www.gracetechsolutions.com

    gracetech solutions have ceased to offer vouchers for the 2006 a+.

    I know this as I emailed their 24/7 support email address last week.

    2006 are showing as £114 each on Prometric at the moment, am I right in saying this is a bit cheaper than it used to be so offsets the lack of vouchers? Im sure when I first started looking at this it was more than £114.

    As an aside, does anyone else lose the will to live trying to navigate the Pearson VUE site? All roads lead to nowhere :x

    If anyone can point me in the direction of a cheaper price than £114 would be grateful, I want to get these booked and sat beforethe World Cup starts

    Cheers for all the replies, much appreciated.

    As mentioned in a previous post I too would ideally like to pass this in a month before the world cup starts

    Ive been meaning to get this one out of the way for a very long time, and 114 plus vat is not as bad as I first thought.
