why do people bother with a+? if your going to work some place that requires it i would highly suggest you look elsewhere.
I know several employers that won't even look at your resume if you don't have A+, Net+, or Seq+.
As mentioned above. It can definitely set you apart from others for help desk, desktop support, comp tech positions. Especially entry level. Anymore certs are more sought after then even degrees imo.
