    Hi anth - welcome to CF. How about something databse-related then ? Have a look at our MSAD/MCSD boards to see if maybe this is more suited to your needs ?

    Hope we can help along the way :)

    Welcome to CF! :biggrin

    Start at the bottom and work your way up. The A+ is a good place to start as it will give you the fundamentals needed for any career in IT.

    Hi anth.
    I have the Mike Meyers All in One Guide and it's very good. Also have the two Mike Meyers Lab Books for Hardware and Operating Systems if you want to go as far as building your own lab. Don't think you can beat hands on experience. Look in the forum index for handy A+ tips. Good luck whichever route you decide on :thumbleft
