Default I am now A+ Certified!!! W00t

Well I took my two tests yesterday for A+, the Essentials and the IT technician tests. I completed each test within 30 minutes and scored a 745 on the Essentials and a 780 on the IT Technician. My certificate is in the mail and I can now use their snazzy logos. My next feat will be Network+.

NOTE TO MODERATORS: THIS THREAD IS NOT A REP ME THREAD, SO PLEASE DON'T LOCK OR REMOVE BECAUSE YOU BELIEVE THAT IT IS FOR THAT PURPOSE. I AM JUST TRYING TO SHOW OFF MY NEW CERTIFICATION!!

W00t!

A+ is a certification from CompTIA. I ordered this book and then after I felt comfortable with the material, I went in to my college, which is a Prometrics testing center and took the tests. The book is pretty good, and if you have moderate knowledge already, then you should get it no problem. The hardest part was remembering that such and such IRQ address was for COM1 and such.

Well here in the U.S., it is two tests in order to be certified, and I believe it was $163 per test. A+ is expensive, moreso than Microsoft. I plan to start Network+ after a few days and that is one $200 test.

LOL There is this girl at work (I work at Wal-Mart) that I told that I was taking my tests and she gave me these eyes (I am convinced she has a crush on me) and said so innocently "Good luck" and winked. Best part is she's single.
