MCSE Core Technologies Checklist
This comes out of the MCSE class lead by Joe Orr. Rather than plow through the boring powerpoint slides, Joe has devised a curriculum that covers the required information and also gives a hands-on practicum. The idea is to start the checklist each class, cover the ground from the previous class, and then push on to new procedures. Practice, practice, practice.

In addition to Joe's checklist, above, I found it helpful to organize the details into major areas of study. For the NT Workstation Exam, I formed three networks of detail:
  • Architecture -- the bulk of this area is the Security module, including how to set up Policies, Profiles, etc;
  • Installation -- includes the Registry structure; and
  • Monitoring -- sort of a catchall for the rest
