    MS Press books are usually good, got my manager to order me this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Windows-Ser...=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1266668536&sr=1-2 and so far has been spot on.

    Thanks for the response.

    I have these pocket guides for Exchange and 2003 and I also find them very handy.

    But what Im looking for is a book like the MS press book for the 290 which has exercises to complete etc...Also a trial copy of 2008 included would be a bonus.

    Hi Simon,

    What im looking for is the server 2008 equivalent of the Ms press book 290. Thanks for reply but I have already got stacks of the 2003 books at home!

    Good luck with selling them though.

    Then you're looking for books on 70-640, 70-642 and 70-643, possibly even 70-646 or 647.

    The MCITP books pretty much are all encompass each other and it's worth getting them all.

    Oh and sorry, I had had very little sleep when I wrote that, in fact I went to bed pretty much straight after that.
