Now I've discovered several different courses of action in the last week as I have decided to go the way of working towards dynamic studies towards certification. I am considering CompTIA A+ because I've heard its a good place to start for someone with no experience in the field. However, I've also checked out Career Academy (which teaches CompTIA course) as well as elearn security and Hacking DOJO. I heard that CEH certification is not as thorough and deep rooted and is more the understanding of how to use specific tools. I want a full and thorough understanding for when the government takes over the internet XD
So my questions:
Where is the best place to start for a beginner like myself?
If CompTIA A+ is the best route, would I go with the CompTIA site's A+ courses or Career Academy's A+ courses?
I have a good number of reading material on the subject but as I have nothing to do for the next 5 months, I wouldn't mind spending my money where I have actual instructors and labs for which to get support and experiment with. Any other suggestions would be very appreciated. Thanks!
