    IMHO the CompTIA A+ is a worthless certification. I took mine back in 2002 and both exams had 90 mins allocated. No exaggertion I took 5 minutes for each. Thye had questions like "what is this socket for" - it was a picture of a D-SUB socket.

    Whilst I agree the A+ is worthless (and way too over priced) to advance or get into IT I did find it good to brush up on my basic skills but Microsoft and Cisco are still the premium certs for general IT that employers look for.
