I have to prep my AD for our upcoming 2013 exchange implementation.

I have downloaded the latest ISO for 2013 and the SP3 cumulative update for 2013.

Which do I run the setup.exe /prepare XXXX syntax from? The iso or the update?

The update should contain everything that is included on the ISO of Exchange 2013, if I am remembering correctly, so running it from the Update media should be fine.

Thank,

But is there a separate schema update that needs to be done to install the sp3 cu update?

I believe so. However, if you run adprep using the version included in the update, it will include all schema updates necessary to install the CU.
