When it comes to pricing, always watch for discounts. For example you can find 10% discount coupons just about anywhere: in my book, on the CompTIA website, and with third-party voucher providers such as GetCertified4Less. Watch for increased savings with early-expiry vouchers too. For those of you that are students or employees of an accredited academic institution check out the CompTIA Academic Marketplace where you can save a lot of money on exams.
