    Greetings and salutations cert formus people. I finally took the plunge on registering myself as a member after doing some serious soul searching on my career path..actually it was searching on google really.

    Just a bit about myself..im 24, graduate in Multimedia Computing and currently working as an IT Support officer. Not particualrly happy with the current position im in tbh hence why im on cert forums to utilise the wealth of information on this lovely website and to progress up the career ladder..

    I came across this site when looking for reviews on certain training companies and after reading so many threads on different training providers both good and bad i have decided to leave my hard earned money in my back pocket for now and focus on one thing which is my A+, which is why i'd like to ask how do i go about taking the exam as i have some material ready (comptia A+ COMPLETE study guide)..just have to get stuck in to it,
    and what other reading material would you recommend for this cert?

    thanks..look forward in speaking to you all.

    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    You can sit any Comptia exams at either Vue or Prometric testing centres. For cheaper vouchers you can check out gracetech (just make sure you buy the vouchers that work in the UK and not in the US), if not you can buy them from the testing centres.

    Other materials you may want to check out for the A+ would be this book.

    Welcome!

    Two exams... one core (220-601), one elective (220-602, 220-603, or 220-604). No modules - questions from multiple subject matter "sections" are all lumped together into a single exam.
