The A+ Cert will not get you a job in this day and age. If you already work in the computer IT field, employers will often require that you keep current certifications from CompTIA, Microsoft, etc. at their expense. In my opinion, getting a Bachelors or preferably a Masters degree will greatly increase your chances of employment as well as greatly increasing your salary.
I saw this question posted in 2004, so I thought I would ask it again. I've been unemployed for too long and the current economny is crap.
I have heard form an instructor at a local community college that the A+ cert. is going to dissapear soon.
The main question is, is the A+ cert still worth going after to get a job? I've been playing with my own computer for years adding this or that hw thing.
