    I did this when I was doing my Net+. I literally passed it 2 days after getting the job though, so I'd only do it if you're confident of passing within like a month of getting a new job. Otherwise they're just going to think you're a liar.

    No - each person I have taken on that mentioned they were working towards X cert never took the exam or even mentioned it when they got the job. Might be why I sacked them :)

    I'd include it on your cover letter but NOT on your CV, unless you want to get asked questions on it in the interview.
