I am interested in taking A+ certification in 6 months.  I know that there are 4 exams available, it is a must to pass A+ essentials and then I have 3 options I can either take  220602 (IT Technician), 220603 (Remote Support Technician), or 220604 (Depot Technician).  which one of those three is the most valuable?
thanks

I'd say the safe bet is the IT Tech exam since it covers most everything, and the other 2 exams leave some stuff out.  It's not that much more material to cover and it's worth knowing.

Unless you have a requirement otherwise, I would agree - IT Tech.  I find it annoying the CompTIA is even messing with it in the first place.  When people think A+ that is going to be the closest to what they are thinking of based on what the A+ has historically covered.

I would go IT tech.

When I took it, you had a choice between windows and mac.

It really matters to what you want to do with this exams for example if you was wanting to become a remote support technician do the 603 exam but the IT technician  exam 602 is a good all rounder.

It was a lot easier a few years ago when there was only 2 exams to take the hardware and operating systems exam.
