    I don't know about you, but I always hang onto those notebooks you fill with notes as you work your way through studying for a certification.

    So today as I was filing my notebooks from the 70-290 and 70- 291 exam to the big yellow "finished" folder a came across the notes I made whilst studying for the N+ course over a year ago.

    I was ready for the exam December 2007 but did not have the £200 is spare for the exam, so I kind of abandoned it and moved onto XP/Vista.

    I was thinking If I were to read through my notes again in the coming months I think I would have good chance of nailing this exam, I would have to pay for it myself though. My company will only pay for Cisco and Microsoft exams.

    The cost of the exam is a bit steep, but I guess the Net+ is a cert for life and an enhancement to my CV.

    Should I bother, would you if you were in my situation?

    Me personally, I would and I've done it. In fact most of the exams, I that I've done I've funded myself (a few were beta's and a few were paid for by work).

    Like you already know the Network+ is a cert for life. You've already done all the studying for it, so if you have the cash for the exam, why not?
