@Ronnie-Wong, how do you suggest I go about learning all this while my objective is to build that foundational knowledge for a career in cybersec and not exactly to get certs like A+ or ITF+? Like the main reason I am watching the vidoes is to get that knowledge which will probably be useful later on and not for the exams, but I felt like exams were a good way to gain confidence in what I learn along the way.
The certification exam only validate the knowledge you possess whether it is from study or from experience. Not every exam will be valid towards your goals. Like all goals you must begin some where. The ITF+ is one that allows you to sample the knowledge and application of that knowledge from throughout the IT world.
If you goal is Cybersecurity, you still have choices as to what that is to look like. Are you into compliance, policy, or direct administration of security. Are you seeking a particular field of study. Each choice you make, puts you onto a more purpose driven task.
If you're just beginning. Learning the foundations of Computers, networking and working with others is always good. Foundational knowledge is the bedrock of everything else you learn. Without it, you can configure something but you don't know why you're doing so.
So I would find a job you're seeking to enter. Find out what the requirements are and pursue a certification or skill path that will help you achieve that goal.
