    You do not need a course, you can self study.

    If you are wanting to do programming then the A+ won't help but if you wan't to get into support then keep trying for the entry level job whilst self studying for the A+.

    To self study get the CompTIA A+ all in one exam guide by Mike Meyers and PC Technician street smarts by James Pyles and if you can an old pc and bobs your uncle.

    If you're looking for quickest and cheapest, send me $20 and I'll give you an "Official BM Fan Club" Certification.

    However, if you're looking to increase your chances of getting an entry-level IT technician job, forget about "quickest" or "cheapest"... do what's going to help your career: pursue the A+, preferably through self-study.

    If you're looking to be a programmer, you should learn how to program and build a portfolio of code.

    Are you talking about an entry-level role in programming, in hardware and desktop support, or in something else. Generically, the A+ certification applies to basic hardware and OS support but it doesn't have a thing to do with programming. I suppose software testing is somewhat more related to programming. What do you have in mind?
