    I was also 14-15 when I did A+. I would jump on it now as it will pay off in the long run, though there isn't anything wrong with starting it later. One other thing I'd recommend is to enjoy your schooling now (I assume you're presently in high school) because before you know it you will be in college and then working full time, etc. Try to strike a balance between the two, but knock out a couple certs while you are in high school if you can.

    Study from the official textbook(s) and you will surely pass.

    What does it matter if you are on vacation or not?

    Ask your dad.

    What do you think a bunch of strangers on an Internet forum can help you with that your parent cannot? Obviously, it sounds like you father works in the industry, he can likely provide you with good advice and maybe even some of his old resources (texts) to prepare. Ask your dad.

    As long as you put in the time, your confidence will grown. My advice to you is, do some reading and lab work. You're young and ahead of the game, internet has soooo many resources. Go for it and don't look back
