    I'm looking into booking my 701 & 702 exams and have been trying to obtain some vouchers for them.

    I live in the UK and the only place I can find that sells the vouchers on their own is http://www.gracetechsolutions.com. However, the voucher is only good for Pearson Vue (although that's not a problem) and it costs £111, whereas the 701 exam itself is £114. Now I don't want to come across as blasé about money, but in the context of the price of the exam that's not really a significant saving! Also, the Prometric test centre is closer for me.

    Can anyone advise on where I can get a cheaper (preferably Prometric-friendly) UK voucher?

    You have missed something. If you pay pearsonvue or prometric directly you have to pay VAT also with Gracetech you dont so your saving £3 + VAT.

    I dont think gracetech do them anymore, well they are not advertised on the site but you could contact them and see what they say. Since gracetech is an American site the compTIA A+ exams for the 600 series were discontinued in February whereas for us in the UK its august 31st.

    You could have a look at getcertifiedforless and see if they do them.

    Ah, thanks for that GBL. I had indeed assumed £114.00 included VAT. I'll go ahead and buy the voucher then. A penny saved is a penny earned! :peace

    I have just tried this, and the total price is £111.00
    How much is the VAT? The only downside is that the package includes some reference material, though I'd prefer some practice tests.
    Has anyone found a better quote?

    Edit: and the Network+ comes up at £163.

    Dont know about MCAS vouchers.

    If you buy a voucher from gractech the prce you see on screen is what you pay, if you were to pay pearsonvue vue you would pay £114 +VAT which is 17.5% at the moment so about £133 ish per voucher.

    N+ is 163 paying pearsonvue is 169.
