Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I just found out that my WinXP certification won't work this year to fulfill the MS Partner Program requirement. So it's time to upgrade to something more current. I was thinking of going with the Windows 2008 Server Administrator tests (70-640, 70-642, and 70-646).

Does anyone have any recommendations for study guides, practice tests, etc.?

Do you have your MCDST or just MCP? If you have the MCDST you should look at taking the 70-682 upgrade test to upgrade to MCITP. –  tfitzgerald Aug 3 '11 at 18:16
I have just the MCP. Let's just say it's been a while since I've taken any certification tests... :-) –  Avi Aug 3 '11 at 18:55

Microsoft publishes self study books. They're pretty good.

Side note: If you don't actually do Server Administration, you'll probably find that these tests require a lot of studying, especially of topics you wont be familiar with. They're not nearly as easy as they used to be.
