As with any certification exam, you should make a plan that includes ample study time and a scheduled time for when you will actually write (sit for) the exam. You should schedule your exam at least 30 days ahead and plan your final exam attack study within those thirty days. Once you have decided on a good target date, you will need to call one of the two CompTIA exam vendors. Pearson VUE and Thomson/Prometric administer all of the CompTIA exams. To register and take the exam at an authorized Pearson VUE testing center, call 877-551-PLUS (7587) or visit http://www.pearsonvue.com/ms/. To take exams at an authorized Thomson Prometric exam center, you should call 800-755-EXAM (3926) or visit http://www.prometric.com/default.htm to register online.
You should have the following information ready before calling and registering for your exam:
Your name and mailing address.
The exam name and number you will be taking—in this case, the exam is called The CompTIA A+ Essentials Exam (220-601).
Your method of payment. For quick scheduling, your best bet is to pay with a valid credit card.
Date, time, and place that is good for you.
