    Just got back from the test centre.

    A+ Core Hardware
    PASSING SCORE 515
    CANDIDATE SCORE 861 (Big number - surprised myself!)

    A+ OS Technologies
    PASSING SCORE 505
    CANDIDATE SCORE 737

    I found the hardware one a doddle but scratched my head a little more often on the OS one. The other weird thing was that I managed to fly through both in an hour.

    Off to change my profile now, and I guess I can now be one of those who answers queries instead of posting them in this forum, and begin bugging the experts in the Network+ forum for advice instead.

    Plans for rest of day:

    Update profile on here.
    Email/call all my buddies.
    Visit Mum and Dad with good news.
    Get my 4 year old to make me a big shiny badge with A+ Certified written on it (optional whether I wear it out).
    Drinkies (well deserved).
    Put on shiny badge after enough drinks to stop me realising what a fool I look.

    Right on, Shep! Well done! Drinks for the hero. Your scores were quite good (though of course, a pass is a pass) so it seems all your hard work really paid off. Congratulations. Have one on me. :alc

    Feeling absolutely rotten this morning after a night's hard clubbing and pubbing. I have no idea what happened after about 10 o'clock. Nevermind, nearly the weekend so I get to do it all over again.
