    Got mine, if your in the military (wish it was for everyone) save yourself 125 bucks. Simple just wish it was more than 1 per customer.

    I will be leaving for basic training in a couple of months (Army), and I have *read* that the army will pay you back for most certs you get, as long as you provide the documentation stating your score and such. For most of them, you also receive promotion opportunities (10 points per cert, I believe). Nice perk!

    Ricka sorry dude, I retire in march so I just cut it under the rug also, lucky catch for me.

    Mrock4, Im on my way out of a 21 year career, I noticed your posts about your goals, stick with that. The military has alot of opportiunities, just got to keep a good attitude and outlook all the time.

    The GI bill will pay for your certs if im not mistaken. but if thats your field then you shold get someting out of it for promotion points.

    good luck and keep your head down.

    Yeah, that's what I was talking about (The GI bill). It says on a page (I'll have to find it), that they will reimburse you for certifications. Here's the page..

    Man, how times change, I wish they had all that when I first came in. The only thing the Army taught me to do was "eat snakes", the rest (computers) I learned on my own.... Good luck to you from one old soldier to a new one.

    Oh yea keep your head down also.
