    Default 220-701 and 220-702

    I plan to take the 220-701 and 220-702 exam in January, already been studying hard for it. I heard that the 220-801 and 220-802 exams are out, and is there a big knowledge gap between these two exams? Will people who take the 220-801 and 220-802 have an advantage over me and should I learn that information after I pass the 220-701 and 220-702?

    I don't think they would have an advantage over your persay because at the end of the day you would still be A+ certified. I'm currently studying for the 801 and 802.

    I was wondering that myself, but I decided it's probably not a big deal. There's probably some information that's omitted and some that's added on the new exams, but I figure a lot of people will still be using older drives and stuff, so the information on the 701 and 702 will still be relevant for a long time.

    I agree with coreyb80. There's no advantage to having one over the other and if you're already close to the 701/702, keep going for it. Employers and hiring managers that value the A+ only care that you have a valid A+ certification and once you pass either set of exams, it's valid.

    Good luck.
