Exam 70-282 Designing, Deploying, and Managing a Network Solution for a Small- and Medium-Sized Business

Sharing my preparation notes for passing the exam 70-282  http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exams/70-282.mspx which I took last December 19, 2008. If you are already a Microsoft Certified Partner, this is a credit towards a Related Program: Small Business Specialist https://partner.microsoft.com/Philippines/program/smallbusinessspecialist/sbsbenefits


Aside from reviewing the Preparation Guide – Skills being measured section I found it also helpful on reviewing in-depth the ff:

SBS on technet : http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sbs/bb630247.aspx (Its the top of my list, it has a vast of  links and resources available there)

SBS 2003 (R2) Features:  http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/sbs/evaluation/features/default.mspx 

Its system requirements : http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/sbs/evaluation/sysreqs/default.mspx

Active Directory on SBS :



I also found some support materials from the sbs technet blog: http://blogs.technet.com/sbs/

SBS 2003 editions: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/sbs/howtobuy/pricing.mspx

And if you are already a Microsoft Partner, you may visit SBSC 70-282 Exam Study Group with R2 Content and Practice Questions @ http://www.msreadiness.com/study70-282r2 or @ https://training.partner.microsoft.com/plc/search_adv.aspx?ssid=7af7ffa2-4bc5-4dca-96b8-33ce6bb6b630&site=US&lang=EN

I strongly suggest that you go thru everything on the last link (traning.partner.microsoft.com) for the 70-282 study group, it has gave me more heads up and made me more prepared for the questions that I had encountered at the actual exam.
