Default Which 2003 MCSE books are the best?

When I went through NT4 and 2000, I liked the Exam Cram series, and the books from Sybex Network Press. Now I need to buy my 2003 material before the end of the year (while we still have a budget for it) and would like to know what people recommend.

None. Microsofts new professional track is MCITP. MCSE is old.

MCITP Enterprise / Server Admin would be what you'd want to get into..

Skip the 2003 stuff and go straight to the 2008 stuff UNLESS you are looking to learn it and not just get certified in it. If you already know, and are employed to support, the 2003 stuff it would be pretty pointless to get certified in it at this point.

I considered it, but thought 2003 would be the best road for me. Please check on reasoning on this, as I'm more than happy to just go for MCITP.

-We'll be doing 2003 at least through the end of 2010 considering we're not purchasing any new servers until then (for multiple reasons).

-I've been administering 2000/2003 since it came out, and am very familiar with it, and would like to go through the certification process to 1) simply flesh out and codify what I already know and 2) since it would make studying easier.

-There is a two exam upgrade path from MCSE to MCITP, so it can be something I do in 2010 to prepare for our next series of upgrades in 2011.

-My network administrator isn't very good at the network infrastructure side of 2000/2003, and I want to make sure the material I buy can be easily passed on to him and will help him better support the system we have in place now.

Your reasoning is ok enough. Buy used exam cram or similar stuff from Ebay for cheap now.

Then use: http://www.sadikhov.com/ for braindumps, practice exams, etc. and you'll be fine.

A good friend of mine went to a 1 week boot camp.

He used americaninteractive.com for it. It's expensive but they keep paying for you to re-take the test until you pass.

Ill sell you my MS Press 2003 training books as well as my ExamCram 2003 books. I have scored in the 90% percentile by reading both of these books for each test.
