My mate used CompTIA, he said they were really good. Raffaz is your man for this, he knows the best places.

CompTIA is the company who make the A+ exams. The test centres are www.pearsonvue.com and www.prometric.com. Just do a search for the nearest location to you on their websites.

You can also pick up cheap vouchers for the tests from www.getcertifiedforless.com make sure that you purchase the international vouchers and not the US ones, coz they are no good here.

Hope that helps

Pearsonvue does offer vouchers too. Maybe it's just for US people, but I bought my vouchers from them. Check out all three, see what they offer for vouchers, and get the cheapest one.

All of them do the vouchers but getcertified for less sometimes have special offers on, and their normal proices are cheaper in the UK.

1600!!!!!! WOW, you got ripped off. A+ exam is about 108 and a good book such as mike myers all in one will set you back 30. Thats all you need. I would hardly call your toolkit free, works out at about 1462 lol
