One great place to work with the products is with Microsoft Virtual labs. There are a bunch of labs you can go through to learn more about SQL Server. There are SQL related labs in both the Technet (labs for IT people) and MSDN columns of the page (developers). Make sure you look at both lists. http://www.microsoft.com/events/vlabs/default.mspx
Good luck with you class.
