    Nothing comes cheap now!

    Try checking some discount vouchers before booking your test.

    My Network+ cost £38 of ebay.

    PC all the exams are expensive - but to put it on context my friend was recently sitting her first round of accountancy exams and they were at £500 each!

    If you want to try and save money you can get two discount vouchers for the A+ from www.gracetechsolutions.com make sure you buy the the international vouchers. You can get both vouchers for £107 each with no VAT to pay then you just use the vocher code instead of your credit card.

    Exam centers have to make money somehow so thats why the exams cost alot.

    They aren't expensive, especially when compared to other exams. 2 finance exams cost me nearly £500 a few years ago.

    You aren't just paying to sit at a PC and take the tests. They have to pay people to write the material/admin the paperwork - the list goes on.

    Be grateful that they aren't charging more!
