    Hi Jeff,

    Interesting List! I think I can help sort some of it out:

    1) Ignore all the ones that are "CRO" and "JKO." For the JKO it's only
    for participants in their Jobs+ program (a pilot internship thing) --
    those participating get that discount. I suspect that other "CRO" is
    the discount for member companies, although it could be another
    "jobs+" like program. In either case, you'd probably need to enter
    some sort of code to prove you're eligble for either of these
    discounts.

    2) For the others:

    a) the first two (221, 222) are useless -- these exams have already
    been retired (adaptive version of the 2001 objectives). Not sure while
    they're still in the database. You could try to register for them, but
    I suspect that you'd get a call from the testing center (or someone)
    letting you know they're no longer available.

    b) the fifth and sixth are for the NEW 2003 objectives and will not be
    released until Nov. 26. You may be able to register for them now, but
    I suspect that the registration would be invalid unless you make it
    for *on or after* that official launch date. (BTW -- No idea why it
    says they're adaptive! CompTIA has gone on record to say that they're
    absolutely NOT going to have the 2003 ones adaptive, ever:
    http://certcities.com/editorial/news/story.asp?EditorialsID=481)

    c) That leaves three and four: 231 and 232. These are the current
    exams: 2001 objectives, linear format. If you plan to take the exams
    *before* Nov. 26, these are the ones to register for. They will retire
    the day the 2003 exams are released, so any registrations for after
    Nov. 26 would probably need to be rescheduled.

    The following link is to a news page containing some background on
    what's happening with the latest A+ exam changes:

    Hope that helps some!
