    Hi guys i have done A+ already ( but at that time didnt even know that were different exams...

    was wondering would u guys advise me to do 220-603,220-604 ?
    even though im studying for the MCP...

    what about books for this 2? ( coz i didnt buy meyers...) my course provider had own manuals.

    hum, dont get why, but comptia as "enrolled" me on 602 603 and 604 ( but i have done.... 602 already? whats wrong?)

    I'm not entirely clear what you have passed.

    If you have passed 601 and 602 then you have A+, and you don't need to take any further exams.

    I am also unsure what you mean,

    To have A+ you have to pass two exams 220-601 is mandatory then you do either 220-602, 220-603 or 220-604 most people do 220-602 as the second one.

    As Harry says you do not need to do anymore.

    To tell the truth I didn't even know those two certs existed. I'm not too sure I would want to admit doing a certification that says I'm shooting for call center work. Maybe a call center job is a valid career path to some other job, but that cert is not something I think that I would pursue.

    As to why Comptia has "enrolled" you in those certs I couldn't say. Maybe that's their way of trying to convince you to spend more money with them.

    Hello there,

    I signed into my Comptia profile the other day to check on my Net+ and I too noticed that the kind peeps at Comptia had enrolled me in those courses.....but ffreeloader's right looks like Comptia are hoping you do the others to generate a few more notes in their pocket.

    220-603 and 220-604 are for remote desktop support there is no need to do them fi you already have your A+ you cant get it twice.

    in that case... it might be a "common" mistake on their "customer advisors"?:P

    anyways i was just curious to get some more "knowledge" within this a+ certificate, but i wasnt that interested to do Remote support.. ( MCDST would do a lot better i assume )

    which is what i am studying now:D

    Well, I wouldn't take it that way. I haven't been to the Comptia site in more than a couple of years. Maybe they have "enrolled" me too. I just wouldn't know, and couldn't care less. It just looks like a scheme to get the unwary to think they "have to" do those two tests as they are now "enrolled".

    after my reply i thought that it could be that u didnt see it on yours ( apologies to what i have said )

    i thought that could be just to get some extra from newbies:P but they have got a mistake thought:twisted:
    Altought my certificate is on the way, i still have 220-602 "enrolled".

    But no more worried though
