  • In short, no. The A+ exam (or any 3rd party exam for that matter) is not a requirement for any Microsoft exam.

    Hope that helps.

  • Hello Michael -

    thank you very much for answering my question - to me it was worth 100 votes because I have been in circles trying to get some help.  It seems because I am a newbie of sorts - more troubleshooting than anything else, I am on the outer rim.

    Thanks again.
