    I would recommend renewing it.  I thought the same thing a few years ago and didn't bother renewing my Net+ and Security+ and now for my job and future jobs I was applying to they actually want those certs and for them to be current. A lot cheaper to renew then to have to invest a lot money into study materials and pay over $300 to take the test because you let certs expire.

    Yeah... you have a point.
    for $150... i guess i might as well do it (one last time).

    But the Sec+ is a intro-level cert... and i already have higher level certs.

    But who knows.... if i got canned next week... i'd probably still rather have it lol
