Take a look at this question I helped with about learning AD

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/File_Servers/Active_Directory/Q_24415318.html

To me the most important thing is to try and setup some sort of lab and practice and learn as you read the material

Also check out the blog list on my blog....the AD Team blog is a must read.

While the MCSE & MCITP have sorted been watered down over the years I'd still try and get some certs as they may help during keyword resume searches by recruiters.

Thanks
Mike

I would look at the CCIA CCIE training materials, since these can be obtained easily used or downloaded.

Technet has plenty of resources,.

To become expert , you will need to have a lab environment where you can build, test and troubleshoot various configurations.

I hope this helps !

Ok if you are going for the networking side then I agree start with Cisco materials/study.   The CCIE is like Mt Everest :)   Start with the CCENT, CCNA, CCNP then years from now if you get to the CCIE then that means you have made it and hello six figures :)

Take a look at CBT Nuggets regarding CCENT, CCNA and CCNP. Testout is also good.

Nothing beats hands-on experience so put up a lab and practice, practice, practice.

Cisco's Packet Tracer is an excellent sim/lab - check it out here: http://www.cisco.com/web/learning/netacad/course_catalog/PacketTracer.html
