Default A+ certification

I'm interested in getting A+ certified and I'd like some input on the best way to go about it. I'm specifically interested in Network Admin. and PC repair and troubleshooting. Is some kind of coursework necessicary or is it simply a matter of taking a test? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Gary

Take an A+ course at a college, then take the A+ exam. Or you can study your ass off then take the exam.

How old do you have to be to be certified.
