Hey guys, I'm planning on taking my A+ exams on New Years Eve. I know Comptia worded the lifetime expiration as requiring candidates be "certified by December 31, 2010," so does this include candidates that pass the tests "on" the 31st? Thanks

The last date to become certified is 12.31.10
So are you taking the exam on 12.31.10? Yes
If you pass, will you have passed by 12.31.10 Yes
I hope you do better with the questions on the exam

As obvious as it might seem, there are situations where "by the 31st" would mean once the 31st rolls around, the deadline has been reached, opposed to giving you the end of day. My professors sometimes word stuff like that, so I can see where the OP was coming from.
In this case however, he is safe!

Hey guys. I passed the essentials exam on wendsday the 29th and passed the practical on the 30th which was thursday. When I go into my CompTia Account it says A+2009 NO Expiration but underneath i dunno why but it says A+ CE and the expiration date said Dec 2013. So what is the deal? Which Certificate is accurate whats the diff between the 2? This was the 1st comptia cert I ever took so can someone please email me at[email protected]
Thanks so much

same here, I guess you had to pass the exam before the 31st. Can someone verify?

I don't think that's correct. I passed my A+ exams on the 30th and 31st, and right now it just shows as active with expiration as N/A. Did you enroll in the CE version?

It could very well be that you're enrolled in the CE program even with the lifetime cert, which is possible. Upon the expiration date, you'd revert back to a lifetime status. Of course, that's just a guess, so I'd double-check with CompTIA to be sure, if I were in your position.
