    Hi Wesleym,

    Do you have any exams under your belt already?
    If so, you will know that the (IMHO) best way of passing an exam is to have experience to back up your learning.

    Use the evaluation copy of Server 2003 and maybe use Virtual Server (now free) to set up a mini virtual network and try out differen aspects of managing the server.

    For studying, it depends on your personal way of learning. I prefer books but others prefer CBT. Practice assessments (similar to the live exam) are helpful but I suggest you avoid "braindumps" as they are often wrong and do not help you gain the fundamental understanding of how the OS works.

    Best of Luck!

        I think the best way to learn is to go through study material such as a big fat book or computer based training such as Train Signal and set up a nice lab for yourself at home to bang on the product you're testing on. It's also a good idea to network with colleagues on forums to gain understanding on areas you may be confused on.

        Avoid brain dumps. They are illegal anyway.

          I like the Learnkey videos. If you do decide to pick up a book, make sure that you read reviews for it online first. I've had some books before that are full of errors, typos, and wrong information. My 70-270 book from Sybex was HORRIBLE. I picked up the first edition of it when it first came out to get started and wish I hadn't. It ended up being so frustrating I didn't even use it. $50 down the drain...
