Also check here for tons other of resources.
As for certs; if you are a beginner beginner; then probably stuff like Security+ and Network+. Unlike the guy behind me; I will never get; nor do I really recommend CISSP; unless you are going for strictly blue team (defense) work. I personally enjoy red team (pentesting; etc); so something like OSCP would be more useful.
Like I said in a post above; feel free to PM me with questions. I'm always happy to help others on their quest to learn more about the wide world of infosec :)
