I have been looking for a while now to attain my A+ certification and needed some help from the community regarding on what you might call a A+ "bible". I had toyed with the idea of New Horizons or My Computer Career.com, but they are financially out of my reach and I believe grossly overpriced. I will also be getting my MCTS, MCDST, and MCP sometime in the near future as well, but I need to start somewhere.
I am looking for something that will basically hold my hand through the processes. I want to teach myself so I can go in and take the exams without having to step into a classroom. I will have an old pc that I can take apart and put together during this process as well so that won't be an issue.
Any help in the right direction is incredibly appreciated.
