    Default Server+ Study Help

    Hey everyone, well I am a student at LCO(Lincoln College Online), a collge based in West Palm Florida offering online classes. I'm earning my Associates in NCIS /W Microsoft Programs. Some of you know me, but this is my fist time posting in the Server+ part of the board. So, here is my issue.

    I am currently studying MAINLY for my A+ and Net+ exams, my school is paying for the A+ and I plan on taking that by December, but my current the current classes I am taking this term are Networking Tools and Techniques, and servers.

    The networking I'm grasping fairly well, Lincoln has provided a TestOut's LabSim activation for the Network+, and also a Server+ Labsim for my server class, but I am getting smashed in the Server class, having trouble grasping it. I know I can, I just dont think I've found my groove, or learning style. Now since I am a student I have access to Microsofts Dreamspark, it has the Windows Server 2003 and 2008 NOS, and also offers their Virtual PC program. Now considering I have no experience with either of these tools I figured I should ask some of you experts.

    Can installing these and utilizing them in different ways be of help ?
    Is the Virtual PC program not the right tool to install this server on and 'play' with ?
    What can I do to try and hone my skills, I have the LabSim, the text books, and I'm getting showed up on a daily basis by people who obviously have experience hands on. Now even though that probably shouldn't bother me due to the fact I've never even been within a foot of a server, it does. And Id like to atleast show everyone that I can do it, because I know I can. The grades in these two classes are VERY important to me, I need to pass them with 'flying colors'.

    So will these two programs help me at all ?

    I doubt if labbing with the server operating system is going to help you a lot if the course is geared toward the material for the Server + as the Server+ is a combination of server hardware, Networking, Storage, and the operating system.
    What books are you using for the course?

    The Complete Guide to Servers and Server + - Micheal Graves, that is the textbook bought by Lincoln, like I said earlier it also provided the LabSim Server+ Material, which is video tutorials, etc - just incase your not familiar with that.
