    I had no idea they were going to make my cert expire. Good thing they changed it, because one of the selling points of getting A+ certified aside from being an industry standard is that it doesn't expire, and they advertised it as such. I'd be asking for my money back, and I imagine a lot of folks would too.

    I am sure CompTia got an earful on their plans to change it. I think it's a smart move to make it expire, as the computer evolves but, pulling the rug out from under current techs is not the way to make friends. I would have been one of them if I had been paying attention at that time.


    I used the Exam Cram A+ (always a good buy), Visual Cert Exam(online app), and it didn't hurt to work on computers for 20 years. Had a few DOS questions :fawk:.

    Time to work on Security+ before the deadline 12/31/2010.


    A+ (2/10)
    Network+ (12/03)
    Security+ (?)
