I can't see a clear place for this so its going here! So I've been putting of A+ for ages thinking I didn't need it but it seems lots of companies ask for it. I bought a book and finished the Hardware section, did some review and am ready for the software section. Here's the question. Do I have to take the tests together? If not, Should I do the hardware test now since its fresh in my mind? Once I pass that part am I considered A+ hardware certified or am I just another guy who is halfway there? Also if I can take them seperately does it cost more? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
