    Server 2k8 Training

    Has anyone heard of or been on any good Server 2K8 training courses? I've seen a couple on Learning tree etc but have been put off by a lot of work on AD which I already know from 2K3. Ideally we're looking at something on updating 2K3 to 2K8.


    Thanks

    I have the MCITP Books for Windows server 2008 Enterprise Administrator + the MCTS Configuring windows vista client one.

    I'm not studying for the exams, but they make a handy bookshelf addition and I have no major complaints about the format or content.

    (exams 70-620/640/642/643/647).

    For you however, you just need the conversion set which is a different path and different exams - I would imagine that the MS books for that would suit you better.

    There was for 2K -> 2k3 so there must be 2K3->2K8 upgrade paths for MCSA/Es that mostly concentrate on the new bits (and any bits they think folk are mostly rubbish at on 2K3). I'd look into something like that.

    No, take the MCSE 2003 and then upgrade as necessary. If you work on 2008 stuff then fair enough do those new exams. If you work with 2003 i would do that. Server 2003 will be around for a long time to come and it would look better on your CV if you had both the 2003 and then the 2008 later.

    Remember folks you can also self study if you don't want or can't afford to pay for courses. Great forum for help with self study for all sorts of certs is certforums. Many members here also post there.

    Hope that was some help.

    Personally I would do the MCSE then do the upgrade exams. Windows 2003 will be around for at least another 5 years, plus unlike the new MCTS/MCITP credentials the MCSE will not retire.

    BTW, there is no MCSE 2008, there's the MCITP: SA and the MCITP: EA, unlike the MCSA/MCSE route the SA & the EA are aimed at 2 different job roles.

    Another thing to consider is that the 2003 MCSE does not have an expirey date where as the new qualification does, 3-5 years I think for the newer one. I am not sure whether they offer a refresher course or if you have to do the whole next batch to stay certified.

    I'm booked in for their Exchange 2007 course next month. Prices indeed are very good for education, will report back here when complete.

    They do look very good! Thanks - been looking for a decent, good priced, trainer for my new Senior Tech.

    Now... if it was just a bit closer!

    We can deliver courses down with you, if there is enough interest in your area. You could host a bespoke onsite course to cover any area you want. Again, give me a call if you would like further information.

    Hi Everyone,

    Just a quick question:

    Are there any MCSE boot camps down (cornwall) this way?

    Cheers,

    Martin
