So I just completed and passed the test, but what I'm wondering now is, is there a second test I have to pass for CompTIA A+ certification? I ask because I got an email from them saying this:

Finish Up Your CompTIA A+ Certification Today!

Youíre Almost Certified!
Donít give up now; youíre only one test away!
You already passed one of the exams required to earn this certification. Donít let your efforts go to waste.

I don't recall there being two tests when I took a high school course that could have seen my certified (but opted not too for foolish reasons).

There are 2 exams for CompTIA A+ 220-801 and 220-802 the 802 is a little tougher, but can be done, I did it a few months ago.

Ya I just found the clarification on the description of the voucher. Sucks I have to buy another one for it. Really thought I had that behind me but oh well, I've gotten this far already.

There have always been two tests required for the A+ certification. It is possible that the test in high school was a course test, not the official A+ certification exams.

Don't sweat it. The 802 exam is just as passable as the 801 exam. :)

Thanks for the words of encouragement fellas. Just feel silly now cause I applied to a few jobs with an updated resume, hehe. Will probably take the second test as soon as I have the money for the voucher.
