Sources for *Good* CBTs
As the title says, i need find some good sources for Computer Based Training. I have "Educational" training i need to get done before the end of the year. My manager has recommended that i look into this over "Classroom" training as i can go over material as many times as i need and skip over parts i already know.
I found some sites listing CBT's for 1k for the A+ cert, which the cert costs me 170 bucks, so why pay 5x in training?
Thanks ahead of time for any links and sources you can share.

You are paying for the class time with a teacher.
Where do you live? How are you on learning stuff on your own? What is your background with computers?

SF Bay Area, I dont have enough patience to learn most things on my own unless i already have a familiarity with it, and been working on computers since i was 8 and learned everything i know from friends, colleagues, and trial and error. Actual "work," worked at Geek Squad for six months before i got sick of the corruption and got a real job doing Help Desk now.
I tried doing CS in college, changed that major before the end of the quarter and dropped all my progamming classes. I went into English, go figure it would actually help me land an IT job.
Typically, i need something visual to stay focused which is why i am in favor of going with the suggestion of CBT's. I tried reading books on programming but i end up losing focus and skipping parts and never finishing them. I have seen the Ultimate A+ on Amazon is well over 1k pages and i doubt i can stay focused through all the junk i already know or think i already know.
