Congratulations on the pass!
skrpune: You want to lab it up mate. Besides, the aim should be to learn the stuff, not just pass the damn MS tests. Without experience, I'd say your going to struggle. Setup atleast a couple of servers, break-fix stuff. Just my $.02
I did all the labs in the book. Installed the server OS that's included with the study guide and set-up an extra XP pc I have as a client (you'll need a client for the labs). I believe if you read the book, do the labs, run through the practice questions you will be prepared for this exam. These study practices served me well.
