Well firstly, welcome back Wirehead61!
It depends on your level of experience really. What I'd do would be to have a look at the material and maybe a practice exam or two for one of the common MCPs; perhaps Windows XP for instance. If you feel the material is within your grasp with a bit of study, go for that straight away. But if you think 'oh dear, I'd like to start with something easier' then do the A+ first. Whatever you do, aim to get one or more common MCP's as they will give you maximum return for your effors in terms of employemnt opportunity
