    Hi, I am looking at starting off my IT career and am looking at the CompTIA course. Is this course due to be changed or renewed with a newer course

    THe exams will be renewed later in the year but compTIA exams are for life so it doesn't matter if you pass both A+ exams now or in the future.

    So if you can get them done now.

    If you're going to be studying from home, then there is 2 methods that you could use:

    eLearning (Seek Learning do eLearning- around £200 as an individual) or Self Study books. I personally would go for the traditional self study books as I've found that eLearning is not for me.

    Self study book is anything from around £20 - £40 although it is an idea to look for the CAQC material as that has been given the stamp of approval from CompTIA that it maps specifically to the objectives. GTS Learning sell CAQC material as do lots of resellers on Amazon.

    you will also have to purchase a certification voucher - A+ is £114 x 2.

    So, all in, inlcuding books and exam works out to about to about £260.

    Hope this helps

    an old computer, one that you don't mind taking to piece and rebuilding (can be gotten from recycling centers and pawn shops) and PC Technician street smarts by James Pyles and compTIA A+ all in one exam guide 6th edition by Mike Meyers.

    you keep calling the course compTIA that isn't it's name compTIA is a non profit organization that produces certifications like the A+,N+,S+ etc

    I assume you are doing the A+.
