Default Anyone take CompTIA A+

Network or Security?

If you have anyone know the cheapest way of doing it. 336$ seems outrageous for testing me on stuff I already know. (Just want the certification)

Get a job where the company will pay for it. I don't know of any exam vouchers that are just handed out, without having some kind of affiliation or membership to a professional group already. You're basically stuck paying the price they ask for the cert.

Other than that, I guess you could google image search and photoshop yourself one.

Have a search round on the internet and sit the free CompTia A+ tests online, then just go and sit the exams. To be honest its mainly common sense and basic knowledge. If your an experienced tech you shouldn't have any problems.

I have A+, Net+, and Sec+.
It's not a huge difference in price but I always get vouchers from a third party, the total for A+ being $300 or so:

Getting a good book is enough. I used Mike Meyer's books for Net+ and A+, and Darril Gibson's for Security+, that was a good one.

Good luck (Reread confusing questions 10 times, CompTIA SUCKS at routing out subjectivity and unclear wording).

I would assume you were aware of this, but in case you weren't - get em quick. Those certs after Jan 1st of next year will need to be renewed every 3 years.
