So ive been studying for my A+ and have a 800 series book. I know the 900 is out now . My question is will my cert look different? As in will it state that i was a 800 and not a 900. I dont want to look "dated" on job applications.

    No difference whatsoever. Nobody will know you took the 800 or 900 series. The certificate with say ComptTia A+ Certifed ce; the ce stands for continuing education. From looking at the objectives of both exam, looks like the 900 series is going to be a bit harder. You already have the 800 series book, might as well continue studying for that exam. You have until June before it is retired. Good luck.

    Based on the exam objectives for the 900 series, I'm glad I took the 800 while it was still around. I loved XP and still love 7, so those aspects of the exams were really fun for me. On the flip side I really hate 8/8.1... Love 10 though. But I don't think 10 is covered on the 900 series.

    EDIT: I will note that my organization uses portable touch screen laptops with a lot of hardware inside which run 8.1 and there aren't too many flaws I can find. Just don't run 8.1 on your gaming desktop icon_lol.gif
