When working towards a certification, don't overlook the obvious. Start with a look at your local college.

When you are working towards certifications, a good place to start is your local college. They may have to call a class by another name, but often computer classes are actually certification classes. I teach at a local community college, and the operating systems and hardware classes are really preparations for the A+ software and hardware tests.

I am working on Bachelors degree and one of the online classes I am taking is `Intro To Networking.' At times they have prepared students for MCSE entry, but this semester it is primarily a preparation for Net+.

Look to your local college, they may take a bit longer to get through, but they are a lot cheaper than many so-called 'training centers.'
