    Hi

     

    I would think that you could only study off the OCS 2007 documents. But if anyone has more info, please post.

     

    regards

  • There are three things you can do to prepare:

    1. Play with the Product - download the RTM Eval, load it (in a virtual machine) and play.

    2. Attend the  Ignite sessions  - depending on where you live, you may find Microsoft offering the 2-day hands on OCS Ignite class. I am delivering this in  London at the end of this week, for example, and a few more times in the coming months. In due course, there will be three MOC classses - I'm  teaching the betas of these during the first week in October.

    3. The public documentation. There i s a ton of white papers out on the MS site (around 1000 pages).
