Well That question is broad. I suppose the best way to start is just jumpin in the water. I would go for the MCTS for 2008 server and see how you like it. Active directory is a multi faceted subject. here is how you may get aquainted:

In short "AD" or active directory is a topology you set up to keep networks organized. It is a "back bone" if you will. This is one core difference between Microsoft and say Linux, This backbone, provides security and scalability across logical boundries

This will give you a little more text book definition

I hope this helps.

I agree with louisreeves.

I would highly also suggest searching for "Active Directory webcasts".  Technet has webcast on differernt microsoft technologies.  Microsoft also has virtual labs where you can gain hands-on experience with the technology.  I would foccs on getting hands-on experience with the technology and getting comfortable with it because it will make it easier come exam time. Also, you need to get very comfortable with the Windows OS in general.  You can also do this through webcast, technet articles, and virtual labs.
