    I am about to leave school finishing my A-levels. I was thinking about going to Cerco but there is hardly any information on them on the internet. What is the best way to learn for an A+ exam?

    Going on a course? Or learning in my own time?

    I have quite a good knowledge on computers already.

    Hi immoral giant,

    If your sole goal at this stage is to pick up the A+ cert, then probably self-study is your best avenue (esp. as you are fresh from school, and so presumably still reasonably disciplined in studying under your own steam).

    Have a look HERE at various resources you can pick up to do this, and also spend some time browsing around the rest of the A+ boards - there's loads of great advice on this already.

    Finally - why not swing by the New Members board to say hello, as it's always so much easier to help Folks when we know just a little about you all. Good luck with your Certs :)

    From what i have read i think this is right for me.

    Once i leave school i can start doing this course. I did a free test on A+ core on www.freecomptia.com and got 80% with my current knowledge.

    How would i go about going in to the exams? Do i need to register to anything? All i know from what i have read is that the exams will cost around £100 per exam.

    Look at VUE and Prometric for testing centres worldwide.

    Also, if your quick - check Mitzs' thread HERE for info on current discounts on the exam.

    Right i've found a center that is near me. I'll look in to the discount stuff.

    How much does the whole course cost? At first i would just be doing the core and OS exam.

    Are the only payments the money to sit the exams?

    I've done a few of the free online exams and am averaging around 70-75%, is this good enough?

    Does it matter what test center?

    Is this limited or will new vouchers come up? The $100 ones have gone.

    Nope - just whichever suits the best.

    Thats good then, theres a center very close to be which is a VUE center.

    Hopefully i'll get around to getting the Meyers book after all the rave reviews.

    Thanks for your help.

    Heh, the site really should consider some sort of deal with Meyer's on his A+ stuff, i wonder how many people have bought his book based on what they read here?

    I know i have for one.

    In case anyone missed it, HERE is the interview that CertForums was lucky enough to secure with the Man himself.

    A real coup for CF, I can tell you :)
