Comptia Security+ £229.00 how do they get away with it?

Booking the exam for September and the cost is £229.00. This is not even with the option of a retake if failed, how do they get away with it?

I took Network+ through a college night class and that option, including the exam worked out cheaper than the self study path.

I guess I've no other option to pay it but it sucks! Anyone any ideas of vouchers etc that may give a discount?

    When the voucher is purchased do you just need to enter the voucher number in pearson uve and select the test centre?

    Yes. When you register for the test at PearsonVUE, there should be an option for coupon/voucher code after your chose the testing center you want to take the test at.

    Is there any additional cost for using the testing centres facilities or is this included in the price?

    Do you guys know where I can purchase a voucher in Canadian dollars? A few days ago, I paid $246 for a voucher and thought that it was a good deal, but I just checked my bank account today and guess what? They charged me $319 because 1 USD equals 1.29 CAD now...icon_sad.gif

    just passed security+ a few days ago. Legit didn't study at all, just been working for 8 years or so. Not the highest score in the world, but a pass is a pass. After finishing the MCSA 2012, i've been a little burned out and didn't feel like pushing on to the MCSE yet. Anyway, i've taken several weeks off and stumbled upon the security+, always kinda wanted to get it, but thought i would need study time, which right now i do not have. ..long story short..the security+ exam is $302, or i bought some package on comptia's website for $338 that included a free retake if you fail. Now you know why i included my long story. For some reason the price is now $368. Still better than paying $302 again if you fail though.

    I found the best price & way to do it is to buy a voucher here;

    CompTIA Vouchers - A+ Certification Exam CompTIA Voucher Test Discount at Prometric / VUE Testing Centers

    You can get US or European vouchers but be careful you get the right one for you location!
    I paid £179.00 net for my last one, booking direct through Pearsonvue would have cost £226.
