I am preparing to start studying for my next Microsoft exam. The exam I am working on will be 70-646, PRO: Windows Server 2008, Server Administrator. In my preparations, I am going to use the MCITP Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-646): Windows Server 2008 Administratorexam preparation book to study for the exam. I bought this book last fall from Amazon.ca, as with the OWSUG study groups, we always used the MS Press books and found them to be the best resource for subject material when preparing for the exam. I also find that its definitely less expensive to get my books from the online stores versus a physical brick and mortar store.
When I read the books, I find that writing out brief points about what is covered in each section helps me remember what I read. I will take my notes and put them up on my blog; probably post dating them so it works out that 2 chapters a week get posted to the site. My plan is to write the exam next Thursday, but I may move that date out another week if I don’t get a chance to get a good solid study in over this weekend.
