Well, I'm not sure you posted this in the right section as its not really a technical problem.

However trying to become an "expert" in Exchange in two days is going to be a big stretch and although you can read a lot of books and practice your knowledge will be limited as you haven't got the experience of different scenarios.

Powershell is one of the more complex tools as its command based and unless you are a robot you won't be able to remember all of the commands.  Use the tab key as much as possible and get the fundementals down

http://www.exchange-powershell.com/

Get a lab going and practice and cram.  

This is a great book that I use regulary, not sure you'll get it in time though:-(

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Microsoft-Exchange-Administration-Instant-Reference/dp/0470530502/ref=sr_1_18?ie=UTF8&qid=1332531227&sr=8-18

Best of luck

I wrote an article on here about basic powershell that should be good for getting your feet wet. http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2008/A_3296-The-Absolute-Beginner%27s-Guide-to-Powershell.html has info. As has been mentioned, it's not likely you'll become an expert in Powershell in 2 days. Unless you have some experience with Exchange 2007, you're not likely to become an expert in 2010. I started working with 2010 about 2 years ago and I'm still learning things about it. In two days, the best you can do is get a Lab up and running and play with it a little bit.

More Practice will make you more perfect. Logic is the key for learning any programming. But for Exchange 2010, you don't need that much of scripting. it is mostly one time setup for any org and most of the scripts you can find easily. Follow EHLO site, specially designed for Exchange Admins. Hope this helps..

No way you are going to be an expert in PowerShell in two days, sorry I just can't see it working. If you blag through it now you will just find yourself in over your head very quickly.
