Do you have a job now that you're trying to improve your skills for? Or are you looking to boost your skills to get a job? Do the jobs have other requirements like experience or a college degree? I wouldn't spend too much time learning old technology unless it's for a job you have now.

yes i have a job now that is running this tech...most companies in my area are running 2003
i dont think it will be a waste of time...as it will give me a solid foundation of the technologies
and i can always take an upgrade exam to 2008 etc...

just looking for a good book where i wont miss anything for exams...

thanks for your input so far...this site seems pretty quite...

The best way to go about would actually be to look for the CBT Nugget (Training Company). They offer Information Technology training. Alot of it I have picked up from them. They offer the exact material to pass Microsoft Certifications.

The second best thing you could use is Microsoft Virtual PC, a copy of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or 2008 and a copy of Microsoft Windows XP Professional and Windows Vista Business or Ultimate.

This way you can study and build yourself a virtual lab.
