Are there any coursebooks for the Goethe-Zertifikat A1? I have found some material on their website, but that seems quite limited. thanks

    @HubertSchölnast A1 is the lowest level in CEFR, The Großes Deutsches Sprachdiplom corresponds to C2 in the CEFR, i.e. the highest level. That's a huge difference with regard to the learning materials you need. Definitely not a duplicate.

I am using a book called Vorsprung. https://www.amazon.com/Vorsprung-Communicative-Introduction-Language-Culture/dp/1133937608 It covers lots of material, starting from total beginner to B1 or B2. Also good online exercises (that complement Vorsprung but are helpful regardless of whatever course/book you chose): http://www.nthuleen.com/teach.html
