So I am going to start studying for the 70-640 exam and was wondering if I need to study windows 2008 R2 or can I just study windows 2008. The reason I ask is because my server dose not support 64bit host and I wanted to use ESXi server for this.
You definitely need R2 for this exam. The exam references a lot of the newer R2 material.
That should be good for two servers I run the same on my laptop. Some labs require up to 3-4 servers but this is very rare two servers or one server and a workstation is what you'll use most.
Yep, that will work. I have run 4 servers on my x86 workstation, when doing federation services. Servers were slow, but they work. As method115 stated, most of the labs require a DC, member server, and a client. 4 GB of RAM will work for those.
Make sure if you buy the MS press book, you get the 2nd editions, which are updated for Server 2008 R2. You can do the labs in the books. Server 2008 R2 unleashed and the Sybex all in one are also good. MS also has some virtual labs you can do or follow along with.
