Default if your a+ or net+ or something certified, tell me if this is legit

Ok, so for everyone who has taken one of these tests has anyone ever tried purchasing a voucher form

www.getcertify4less.com

I am a little bit leary about using them, I mean you save anywhere from 20 - 60 dollars it looks like but I am just afraid if I purchase it then when I enter in the voucher on the pearson website it will not work and I will be out a good junk of change. We all know how expensive these tests can be, so I am wondering if this is a blessing or something else. If anyone has used this and had good results please post, I already paid 326 bucks for my a+ and over 100 for my net+ , but I see they have vouchers for ccna and I would like to try it out if it is legit.

I believe you're talking about DJ CHRIS. A+ is a certification that says you are certified to repair computers. It says that you've taken a class and you know what you are doing. Net+ has to do with networking I think.

Yes Joga is correct, I was just curious because I do not have to go to my ccna 4 class if I pass my ccna certification, and right now money is a little tight especially being a college student and already over 500 dollars just in tests, and over two thousand in semester bills. This just kind of seemed like a beacon of hope since they offer discount vouchers for pretty much all of the certification tests.

Pooker, unfortunately I don't know if that's legit or not. I just know what A+ is. And I was able to guess what net+ is. Sorry I can't help you there. Off of the top of my head I think DJ CHRIS would be the most suited person to help you.

Well on the checkout page there is a legit verified link to geotrust.com. Apparently that is a sub company of Verisign...so I'm gonna say it's probably legit.

You don't have to take a class, I didn't.

Anyways, I think that site is legit, but I didn't use them.

Oh you don't? I thought you had to. At my school they offer an A+ Certification class. I'm gonna take it, probably my senior year. But that's cool. So if I wanted I could just take some kind of test and get certified if I pass?

I would recommend that you check out this site:http://certification.comptia.org/

It is the homepage of Comptia. They are the organization that created the A+ and Network+ exams. They will have all the information you need, or want to know. Plus they have some books that you can get and go through to prep.

Do you have to be 18 to get certified?
