Chapter 9. Suggested Exercises

The Windows 2000 Server exam requires you to be familiar with both the Windows 2000 operating system and how it can be used to manage a network environment. Previous experience managing a Windows NT network will be helpful, as will spending as much time as possible using the new features of Windows 2000 itself.

Hands-on experience is always the best way to really get to know an operating system well, and following these exercises will give you a structured approach as you get to know Windows 2000.
