I went to compTIA's site, got to the Linux+ FAQ, clicked How much does it cost... but it didn't bring it up :P I don't know whats up with that...

Red face Cost Way to Much!!!!

$207 USD????? I only paid $1xx for mine and that was last year. CompTIA exams are so overpriced unless you pay for the "member" discounts. I don't understand why they are so expense, especially compared to Microsoft exams which are around 125 USD.

Where did you go to take the test for ~$100? Referring to member discounts, are you a member? Did you have any vouchers for reduced cost to take the CompTIA Linux+ test?

That($207) is the regular price for the exam. I'm sure he didn't pay full price for it when it is highly possible to find nice money-saving discounts out there...didn't he? I don't really complain about the prices of CompTIA's exams because I have NEVER paid full price for a single one.
