    Hi Welcome

    If you are new to IT and have no experience in the work place, I would say you should start with the compTIA A+ certification then proceed to compTIA N+ before moving on to Microsoft exams the Microsoft exam you should do is MCDST (Microsoft desktop support).
     
    Certifications: A+, N+, MCDST, Security+, 70-270
    WIP: 70-620 or 70-680?

    Just to add

    You can do all these exams by self study, i.e you buy the relevant books to study from then when you are ready you book the exam or exams and take them.

    You asked if you can download free material to study from, you can but that material is usually whats known as a braindump which is cheating because they give you the real answers, but if compTIA or Microsoft believed you had passed your exam by cheating then they can get you de certified for life.

    You can however download study aids from preplogic or transcender or Boson and cramsessions they are legit.

    Then you should do the compTIA A+, N+ then MCDST.

    The books you need for the A+ are compTIA A+ all in one exam guide by Mike Meyers and PC Technician Street Smarts by James Pyles.

    The first book will teach all you need to know for the two A+ exams and the second is sort of like a lab book to practice stuff.
