    I don't believe you can pass a 700 exam and couple it with an 800 exam. You'll have to pass either two 700 exams or two 800 exams.

    It is my understanding that the 700 exams will not retire until 8/2013

    YFZblu is correct. You have plenty of time to take the 701 and 702 exams before they expire on August 31, 2013. Also, you cannot mix and match the exams. If you take 701 you need to take 702 but you have more than a year to do so.

    This page provides some details on the new exams: New CompTIA A+ Exams 220-801 and 220-802

    Good luck.
