After a few days of spyware and maleware training on the site I have decided to start seeking certifications in both general and specific computer knowledge. BUT I need help. I have no idea where to start, what the difference between A+ and A++ is...here is what I am trying to achieve if you will.
I've been using computers for a good 10+ years. In that time I have received a degree in graphic design and I've learned to pretty much as much as I can about computers from building them to how they work to web design (css - tables are on the way out).
I would one day love to start my own computer business. I love dealing with computers, it does not feel like a chore to me when I am helping someone. I truly do love computers.
I'd like to know what certifications you guys would recommend. I have no networking knowledge but I would like to get some. I'd rather get certification for PC repair, building, etc before networking.
But where should I start? Which types am I looking for? Are the books that Books-a-million or Barnes and Noble sell decent for studying?
