    Hello and Welcome!

    You can find lots of useful information in the A+ forum section.

    As far as tests go you can sign up to this site, https://wsr.pearsonvue.com/testtaker/registration/SelectTestCenterProximity/COMPTIA/1007326 and search for the nearest test center to you.

    When you are ready to take the exam you purchase a voucher and book your place through that website.

    By asking where you start, I guess you are doing the Self Study route?

    Hi thanks for the reply and for the link im going to check it out when im free. I just need some basic advice. I love building PC's and love handling computers i already have a great understanding of how to operate computers but have never really got into networking. However i did want to start off with comptia a+ but someone advised me that comptia a+ is a very basic entry level cert and that it would be better for my career path by going straight into cisco and starting off with a ccna cert? i dont really have a great understanding of networking but i do have a decent basic level of how networking works and how to run a network. what would be the best option for my career path? and to answer your question i would prefer to take the self study route as i learn better that way however if there is a conpany which offers a packages of for example a ccna exam along with books and tutor and lab log ins ect i would love to look into that. once again thank you for anyone who can help me.
