Hi there am just a new person over here, all I want to get help with is a career path.
I was trying to do comptia but am also looking at this books in web design especially the new Adobe master collection.
I want a piece of advice to help me do a course in computing. surely I have the interest and it seems I want to know all almost everything but I don't think that's possible.

I've been a graphic and web designer for a long time; so long that I missed the boat on learning to program. You don't say how much experience in programming you have.
If none, try an O'Reilly book (part of a great series): Head First Programming, A learner's guide to programming using the Python language.
Check out some of the free online sites like Khan Academy or Code Academy in addition to learning through books.
For the design end of things, there's Adobe CS, though the expense may make it harder to learn than some of the open source alternatives like Gimp (image editing), Inkscape (vector drawing).
If this is not the kind of advice you're seeking, please let us know more about what you want.
