    I've been looking for something like this, and here it is, right in front of me!

    I had to register to show my appreciation for this, as I'm gonna take this exam after my 2008-exams coming up in Q1 2011

    Many thanks!

    Which of these two is recommended most useful for someone unfamiliar with using sccm, and would assist in setting up a test environment.
    Thank you, for you time and your help.

    You would probably want to start off with the admin companion as it is a nice overview but the Unleashed book is a lot more in depth and would help more with setting up a test environment.
