This has been mostly modified from the Microsoft Born To Learn Wiki - they are not identical! Not all of the objectives were covered by that website so I filled in the gaps where I could.

Some things relate to older versions of Windows Server, but they are still relevant or there is not a newer documented alternative. Feel free to make suggestions or add to this thread. :)
