    Dear CF members

    I was just wondering what the total cost of doing A+ and MCSE would be.

    Can someone tell me the cost of the EXAMS ONLY, since getting the literature and so on should be quite cheap.

    Thanks in advance.

    A+ is two exams, depending on where you are in the world, it will probably set you back around £250. (Cant be sure, sat mine along time ago now.)

    MS exams are approx £88 each, so times that by 7 is £616.

    You can register with Pearson Vue or Prometric and get exact pricing as it will tell you when you attempt to book the exams.

    My advice is plan one cert at a time, heck even plan one exam at a time.

    You've mentioned around at least two years worth of cert study for most people.

    The biggest advantage of certification, or modular self study courses like the OU is you can adjust as you go and fit it around your life.

    Its good to have an end goal but break it down into manageable achievable sub-tasks.

    Most people will attempt A+ -> MCSA -> MCSE in that order. Often this will involve years of training and experience in between.

    MCSE is very likely to have been withdrawn before you achieve it unless you are already a highly experienced systems administrator, in which case I'd expect you wouldn't be asking about the A+.
