This guy has gone through and made up a complete video series on the A+ Networking+ Security+ and Microsoft 70-680 exams. His videos are very in depth and cover basically everything you will need to know for these exams. There broken down into smaller videos to help as well. I found them very useful in filling in gaps and as a quick refresher before the test.
A great site with lots of resources guides and practice tests

-A quick note to anyone considering taking this exam make sure you know your legacy components as they are on the exam and tested a fair bit. This seems to be one thing people forget to look at
If anyone has anything to add feel free to let me know i will be updating this constantly as i find new things or get more ideas. If people like this ive got one started for the Networking+ exam as well. Also if anyone has any ideas about the layout of the guide let me know this is my first one.
