So, I've been studying hard lately and finally worked up the nerve to take the Essentials (220-601) portion of this exam. I passed it no problem, and I have chosen to take the IT Technician (220-602) exam to complete the testing for this certification, seeing as how it is the best match in relation to the field I hope to find employment in. I have noticed that when comparing the exam objectives, these two exams seem awfully similar... A+ Essentials 220-601 A+ IT Technician 220-602 So my question for anyone who may have recently taken both these exams (or anyone else who feels they might like to offer some input) is just how similar are these two exams? Having passed the first one, should I worry too much about studying for the second? I can't really afford to fail (financially, that is), but it doesn't seem like the second test will present much of a problem to anyone who is able to pass the first. Thanks for any input you guys can give me.
