Does A+ certfication worth to take?, I am thinking to take A+, if you have experience let me know. I don't want to waste my money.
Good to have but not required.

Unless you really need the information, i'd skip A+ and go straight to a Network+ certification. It will give you a good foundation for taking another step if you decide to continue your education - either toward MCSE, CCNA, or a Redhat certification.
In my experience, an A+ certification and a bus token might get you downtown.

A+ Certification is good route if your company pays for it. In my opinion, it's not worth paying out of your pocket for as it probably isn't going to be much help in getting a job.

It's a great thing to get if you are also going for the others like:
MCSE, CCNA network+

A friend of mine told that companies like to see A+ certified on your resume, so I took both exams about 5 months ago and I'm A+ certified now. The advantage of A+ is that it doesn't expire, like other certifications such as CCNA (they expire after 3 years). A+ does learn you only the basics, yes, and you most probably already know the stuff you learn there. The only things you'll have to actually study for is crappy IRQ, I/O and DMA addresses (still don't get why you have to learn those for the A+ objectives anyway but ah well...). In my eyes, I think you should also have a Network+ and a Server+ :) A+ on it's own isn't much.

I would like to add, A+ is also useful if your aiming towards a Microsoft Certification.

But again, it's only the basics. I think you can say the same about "aiming towards a CCNA certification" since it also covers a bit about networking ;)

I also agree with bdcsales, if you are getting A+ certification as a training from your organization then it is good to go with it. Otherwise if you are spending money from you pocket then go for CCNA or CCNP.
