Get Your Hands on Windows 2000
Windows 2000 Hands-On Training (HOT) Kits are now available through Microsoft Direct Access.
If you still haven't received a copy of a release candidate for Windows 2000, you can purchase the Windows 2000 Hands-On Training Kit (HOT Kit) for $129.
Sound hefty for something you'll only get a few months' use out of? As part of the deal, Microsoft will ship you final shipping copies of Windows 2000 Professional, Server, and Advanced Server when they're available. (They're strictly for testing purposes; no reselling allowed. And should you try to upgrade the product in the future, it won't work either.) The kit also includes a Windows 2000 Channel Essentials Training Course, with a pre-assessment exam posted online, a CD with 12 hours of training, and an online post-assessment exam that -- if you're among the first to pass it -- could lead to an additional free training course. The training is provided by Scholars.com.
