CompTIA introduces 2005 CompTIA Server+ Exam & supplemental exam guide

With the new version of the CompTIA Server+ certification examination set to debut on February 14, CompTIA, the Computing Technology Industry Association, has released the CompTIA Server+TM Supplemental Exam Guide covering the new objectives for the CompTIA Server+ 2005 exam.

The Supplemental Guide is designed to bridge the gap between the CompTIA Server+ training materials currently available and the additional items covered on the new CompTIA Server+ certification exam.

"CompTIA created the CompTIA Server+ Supplemental Guide to fill the gap in courseware and study material currently available," said Neill Hopkins, vice president of Skills Development, CompTIA. "We want to enable candidates to be fully prepared and confident to take the new CompTIA Server+ exam when it is available February 14. Too often, candidates opt to take the older version of an exam because of the lack of preparation materials available for the newer exams."

CompTIA say that their Server+ exam was updated to incorporate the latest technologies in server architectures, hardware and peripherals and map as closely as possible to current job tasks.

Details of exam domains and new objectives can be found on the CompTIA website:

Registration for the new exam is now open through Pearson Vue and Thomson Prometric at:

The Supplemental Guide can be purchased at:

The guide is available in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and costs $25 with a special discounted offer of $19.95 for CompTIA members.

The CompTIA Server+ certification is a vendor-neutral certification geared toward mid- to upper-level technicians. In October 2004, the program reached the milestone of 10,000 candidates certified. The current CompTIA Server+ exam will be retired March 31, 2005.
