I was wondering if anyone had any tips or advice on taking the Windows 2000 server 70-215 exam?  I haven't taken a Microsoft exam before so I was wondering if anyone recommends any reading material or practices test, or any area to focus on?

This is my current study material:
1 MCSA/MCSE Self-Paced Training Kit Microsoft Windows 2000 Server: Exam 70-215
2 Self Test Software 70-215
3 Using Windows 2000 server, Roger Jennings

Most books I have bought and used to get my MSCA have included excellent practice exams.  Except one, Sybex books are excellent study sources but the practice exams are horrible.
I agree with Petelong on this... it is the easier of the exams I have done.
But, that doesn't mean you should be any less prepared.
DNS, RRAS and AD were very big on my exam.  Make sure you prep those areas very well.

This is your first MS test and it is server 2k... good idea.  If you are planning on the 210 the 2k pro test next, you should be good to go.  Not much to study on after doing well on the server test.

As above except that 218 was the easiest (especially by the time I had got there i.e. passed 210, 215, 216 and 217).

Study the material (I used MS Press) and get as many test questions as you can and visit sites like this one:

But above all get as much experience with server as you possibly can (i.e. hopefully you work with Server or the very least have a home lab).

Good Luck

Nzarth,
If I were to use the path you did, I would probably be saying the same thing....after 216 and 217.... 218 would be cake. ;-)
I have not done 216 or 217 yet but studying both.
