I would like a specific definition for these three terms:

A+ Certification
Net+ Certification and
MCP Certification

It would be wonderful to get as much detail as possible. I am sending this info to a person who is not very literate with computers and I am not very clear when trying to explain to this person. Thanks for your help.

In a Nutshell, A+ Certification is for a technician. It primarily concerns Hardware and OS setup, configuration and troubleshooting.

Net+ deals with networking and its fundamentals.

These are both Comp-TIA Certifications and details can be found here:

The MCP certification means you have passed one of Microsofts recognized professional exams (there are many) so what it exactly implies depends on which you have. I, for example, plan on getting my MCP in Exchange Server soon. You can find details on the MCP certification here:

(again, remove any spaces).

I hope this helps. If you'd like to get a feel for the tests and what kind of information you need to know, see some study guides and maybe take a practive test, take a look at http://www.cramsession.com/

Good Luck!
