You are in better shape than I was for my 70-216. I only had 1 compute
for most of my studies, only recently got a second.

I would recommend setting up at least 1 of your computers as a dc, on
maybe as a member server, and one with Pro (don't forget the Admi
tools!). You are going to need to understand DHCP, DNS and WINS mos
of all. This will give you a perfect opportunity to actually use th
tools like netsh, nslookup and ntdsutil, etc, and especially pa
attention to the switches in those commands, stuff I had to memoriz
because I couldn't do much with them on a 1 computer network.

Then, get a good understanding of IPSec, and IIS, and understand wha
the differences are between NAT and a Proxy. I found t
be most helpful, there.

And, finally, get comfortable with subnetting. I found Freak's Guid
to Subnetting to be most helpful.

And all of this was just an overview. :eek
