I am in a course, and later down the line we will be learning Windows Server 2008. So the schoolhouse is getting rid of old stuff and I was able to recieve a WS 2003 book and eval disc.
Now, I know that the course here is not designed for certification prep, so I will not try to purchase a copy of WS08. However having this eval gives me the opportunity to learn some things, and possibly earn a certification.
I know that MCSA is on the way out, even though MS claims it won't retire (I don't know why they say that), and I guess I could at least look at starting it. Two main questions,
Is this worthwhile?
and two, because I am probably going to look at it anyway, How do I use this? A server OS is not useful without hosts, I don't know what I can learn with just the Server OS, should I go find a eval of XP PRO and make VM's to act as clients? Where could I find a good guide on doing so and what not?
Your quick replies here will be greatly appreciated.
