    Hi all,
    I'll be studying for the Server 2003 exam shortly and realized there is Windows Server 2003 and the R2 version. The Training Kit book contains the non-R2 version.

    Did you guys use R2 version on your pc to study and practice for the exam?

    FWIW, I don't recall anything that was R2-specific on the exams. The first edition books came out before the switch to performance/simulation-based exams, though, and the discount vouchers will have expired.

    crito,

    i assume that means the measureup content on the additional CDROM that comes with the first ed will not have performance/sim based questions on it...ah well, its better than nout!! :D

    The 2nd edition of the book says the exam does not ask any R2 related questions, it's in one of those "IMPORTANT" boxes . It's on one of the first pages.

    Page 5 of chapter 1.

    I think i was stuck between two different exams (when they were making the switch over to R2) because wasnt GPMC part of the R2? I remember having to download something "new" to learn Group Policy with in the AD Users and Computers console and GPMC . Also in that book SUS is spoken about but now WSUS is covered - my suggestion get the 2nd edition MS Press book and R2 installed! 8)
