A+ material will get you up to speed on the basics involved with sstand alone PC info. It touches on networks briefly. Once you understand single PCs you then want to study Net+ certification. Dispite what many people will tell you, most emplyers want to see certifications so they know what you had to learn to get that certification. Certification is an industry established system. To get an inexpensive start, buy PC magazines that have tips and ricks in them and read, read, read. Make it a practice to make and keep files on all that you learn here on the forum and in the mags. Never let memorization be enough. Always persue your learning with the attitude that whatever you are learning, it must be comprehended or you aren't done with it yet.
