    Ryan something that has always bothered me is Exchange looks and sounds like a very advanced server package.. how does one actually start off learning Exchange?

    Well I'll have a go at answering this...

    1. Get through the core MCSE stuff by using their products at work and at home. The home study lab is critical to all this process...

    2. I chose the SQL and Exchange electives years back as offering the best returns for my career - even though they are the hardest electives IMHO. The choice of literature is important, Will Schmied's Exchange Administrator study guide is prob the best, and generally the Sybex books edge out the other publications. The MS press books are good also, but voluminous and dry readying...

    3. Use the Exchange product extensively at work and at home in the study lab, read LOTS of whitepapers like the planning and deployment guides, and finally get brilliant test software.
    {for heavywieght MS electives like SQL and Exchange ONLY Transcender, Selftest and Examcram selftest exams are good enough}

    4. Always do the Admin exams before you do the design exams with SQL or Exchange....then do the design exams as soon as possible afterwards.

    Exchange 2003 is still valid for a few years..if I was starting out I would do this set first for Exchange as electives to finish off the MCSE 2003 then go to Exchange 2007....

    In fact exchange 5.5 is still valid, on the Exchange 2003 course, there's a whole chapter on upgrading Exchange 5.5 to 2k3. I can only assume that this is still the case with the 2k7 version.

    I was under the same impression
    Outlook 2007 also cant connect to Exchange 5.5, the first version not to be able to!
