yeah the question is this how should I list my certs on the CV

Would you put Plus or would you put +

for example

A Plus, Network Plus, Securtiy Plus

OR

A +, Network +, Security +

what way is best to represent this on your CV

    Definitely A+, Network+, Security+
    Decide what to be and go be it.

    +1. That's how CompTIA wrote it, why would I need to change it? LOL.

    Ideally they should be in the order you received them in.

    I list them as CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+ etc.
    I also list them based on difficulty level/certification tier based on the vendor.

    I prefer the order that I got them, someone told me to list the best one first to catch an eye.

    I'm not sure if I list CompTIA 3 times or not. I probably just list comptia once.

    CompTIA: A+, Network+, and Security+

    Don't abbreviate them on a resume either. Net+ or Sec+ doesn't look quite as good.

    I don't mind listing them in my resume (Security+ has yet to make it on my resume though as it's only been barely a month and my resume is a project in and of itself) and as we both said, it just makes more sense to list them in chronological order. My certs are bold anyway so it's going to catch eyes regardless.

    I don't see a problem doing it as either CompTIA: A+, Network+ and Security+ as you have it, but that's not going to work well with dates, which is what I prefer to use:

    CompTIA A+ (11/2005)
    CompTIA Network+ (12/2005)
    CompTIA Security+ (08/2010)

    I don't personally mind listing my CompTIA certs as they were earned so I figure why not.

    It seriously depends on how your overall experience looks, I think, but I definitely would not use A Plus, Network Plus, or Security Plus (I would not write "+" out.) I would match the spelling with how it is on www.comptia.org
