The code requirements was lifted a few years ago. Go to this web side Alabama Amateur Radio Clubs
to find the closest Ham Radio Club. Go to a couple meeting and get to know some of the local hams, many will be more than happy to help you.
Go this one to learn a bit about how to get a license
There's practice exams that tell you answers on both QRZ http://www.qrz.com
/and eham http://www.eham.com
ARRL also publishes books for all three license
classifications with the questions, the answers, and explanations. There's a couple other books that might too.
Most likely any local club will have copies of the Q&A books.
Good luck and hope to meet you on the air someday.
PS It's really not that hard.
