Hi Guy,

I heart a new said that the A+ old style exam will retired at June 30,07.

Cert-220-301 CompCert: A+ Core Hardware (Retires 6/30/07)
Cert-220-302 CompCert: A+ OS Technologies (Retires 6/30/07)

It will replace with the new style ver 2006.

Cert-220-601 CompCert: A+ Essentials
Cert-220-602 CompCert: A+ IT Technician
Cert-220-603 CompCert: A+ Remote Support Technician
Cert-220-604 CompCert: A+ Depot Technician

Is it true??????????

    Yes, you heard correctly. To become A+ certified, you'll have to take the 220-601 along with at least one of the other tests. The designation you'll receive depends on the elective you take: if you take 220-602, you'll be an A+ IT Technician, if you take 220-603 you become an A+ Remote Support Technician ,and if you take 220-604 you'll be an A+ Depot Technician.

    From what I can tell, the designation that is the most similar to the old A+ is the IT Technician speciality. Although, when I worked at a place that required A+ certification, I suppose I was considered more of a Depot Technician.

    yep. you heard it right.

    i was going for my A+ but when i heard about it, i thought lets do the newer ones.

    i also heard it concentrates more on "soft skills".. than the IRQ's, or how many beeps means what.
