Today I passed the A+ Essentials (701) with an 860 out of 900. I'm a little surprised...did better than I thought I would. icon_cheers.gif I have the 702 scheduled for Friday morning.

Not sure if A+ is worth having, but it certainly can't hurt! I hope this gets me some hits on the job websites when I start looking in March/April.

    Congrats on the pass. And yea it will help with job looking, such as long as putting your resume up on Career builder isnt your ONLY technique of looking for work.

    I found the 702 more of a challenge but did better than 701. The A+ will help because some HR's have only heard of the A+ and don't know any better. Also depending on the job you're applying for you choose to put the cert on your resume. Just because you have it doesn't mean you put it on our resume.

    Good Luck!

    I passed the 702 this morning with an 863/900. The computer I was using had to be rebooted about halfway through the exam, but I was able to pick up where I left off and it even kept my time :D

    I didn't care that my test was interrupted because of computer problems because I knew I was going to fail. After answering maybe 20 questions I was sure I was doomed and felt more and more a loss of confidence. I was actually shocked to see that I'd passed!!
