I recommend this training kit
After reading the book and doing all the exercises I feel that I really know Windows 2000 Server. I also used many practice exams before taking the real exam. I passed the exam but it was the combination of this training kit and 3rd party practice exams that got me through, I suspect this training kit alone would not have been enough to pass the exam. Although the content of this kit is excellent, I only gave 4 stars because there were several subjects in the exam that this kit did not prepare me for.
From previous experience with other Microsoft exams, I recommend Microsoft's own books when studying for these exams. Microsoft Press material is the most accurate and up-to-date.

Good kit from Microsoft Press
If one is planning a course of self-study to prepare for MCP exams, the Premium Edition books from Microsoft are a good set of training materials. The text comes in both hard copy and cd format, with some practice test materials and "Readiness Review" included. Don't rely on these kits alone, be sure to use some sort of practice test if you want to be really sure to pass.

Great prep for the 70-215 exam
The training kit comes with two books, and four CD-Rom. I just passed the exam today, and this was my primary source of info for the test. Be warned however if you do not have two computers to set up as a network you will not get as much 'bang' out of this kit. There are a large number of hands on exersizes that you need to have a small network to complete. One of the CD's does contain an audio-visual presentaion that follows along the training guide, and it contains within the presentation a simulated network enviorment that you can also do exersizes on. Another CD goes hand in hand with the readiness review book, and contains practice tests that are very much in the same format as the actual exam. The last two CDs are evaluation copies of tech net, and Windows 2000 server (120 day eval period for 2000 server). Using this kit, and online resources like the Microsoft knowledge base was all I realy needed to both get a good understanding of the material, and pass the test.
