Microsoft Server (4 July 2008)

The SIG will begin studying Server 2008 on September 5th, using the Microsoft Self-Paced Training books. Over the next year, the SIG will review the three books preparing for the exams leading to the Server 2008 Administrator certification.

The SIG will have four Server 2008 installations for hands-on training. The technical sessions will be lead by Jim Francis, who has 20 y ...
