MCSA 2008 Study Materials (Sybex v MS Press)

I'm getting ready to buy some materials to get the MCSA:2008 certification. I've been looking at the books available, and was wondering if I could get some thoughts on the books I have been looking at. The first one is called: MCTS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Complete Study Guide (Exams 70-640, 70-642 and 70-643) by William Panek. Its the all in one Sybex book. The other book(s) I have been looking at is the MS Press set: MCITP Windows Server 2008 Server Administrator: Training Kit 3-Pack: Exams 70-640, 70-642, 70-646.

I don't have any windows server experience, so from that standpoint I am wondering which book(s) might be better. I will be setting up a virtual lab and using some videos as well, either CBT or signal train.

Thanks in advance for any replies.
