    I'm thinking about paying out some cash to an online A+ certification class. What experiences has anyone had with these? Do you recommend any?

    Thanks in advance.

    Get the books and study guides.. Paying for the class would be silly.

    Yep. The two A+ tests are not difficult at all.. just don't go into the exams feeling you know it ALL, because you won't pass.

    frankly if you need classes to pass the A+, you don't deserve to be A+ certified. ;)

    The real question: Is a A+ cert worth it?

    Nope. Sure isn't. Read my sticky'd FAQ. The A+ cert is enough to get you minimum wage at this point..

    minimum wage, but I found that it does help you through the door at most places, who wouldn't even consider you if you weren't certified.
