If you have the smarts for it, go ahead

I'm not smart enough right now for A+ or any networking stuff like that.

Yes always learn your hardware first.

I want to get A+ certification.
I definitely know enough to do the exams (though I heard there's only one exam now) however I've had trouble finding out where to actually do it.

I am currently taking it, and it is pretty enjoyable, as courses go.

I think it is only one exam, yea, and the course has changed this year. You now do a dedicated unit on laptop hardware, and there is a few other changes. We do one seesion a week, and I think I am taking the exam in the summer. Seems easy enough though, looking at practice questions. Half of them require PC knowledge, and the other half seems to be common sense sort of thing really.

I took mine in '04 and i gotta say it's really a piece of cake. Took me all of 15 minutes for each test. N+ i did in about 10.
