SB: SBSC 70-282 Exam Study Group with R2 Content and Practice Questions
This 4-week, 12-part series covers the 70-282 Exam, Designing, Deploying, and Managing a Network Solution for a Small- and Medium-Sized Business. It will be held on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays at 10 AM PDT starting on May 7, 2007. This exam is a key component in acquiring the Small Business Specialist Certification. Special attention will be paid to the new features and functionality of Small Business Server 2003 R2. The material will be drawn primarily from books by SMB Nation Press and MS Press, as well as other internal resources. This is an opportunity for technicians at the partner level to grow their skills and includes all of the basics required to install, maintain, and troubleshoot networks built on SBS 2003 R2. To access the Study Group blog, visit us at http://blogs.technet.com/BackRoom.
Using Self Test Software's great data bank of approved practice exam questions, we will review the material for the week on Fridays and help you check your preparedness for the actual exam. We will not only be looking at why an answer is correct, but also exploring why answers are wrong. Attendees can take advantage of Self Test Software’s offer to purchase their 70-282 Practice Exam at a 30 percent discount! A special link to use when purchasing the practice exam will be given during the webcast series and also posted to our study group blog site.
