I just came into a site that has Exchange 2010 SP1 with rollup 8 (SBS 2011 Standard). To get them current with service packs is it best to do SP2 then rollup 8, then SP3 and rollup 15?

no need to go that way. Simple deploy SP3, and then latest RU, which is 15.
Make sure your account is member of Enterprise and Schema admin.
Maybe disable antivirus, just in case :)

Ivan is 100% correct.

And if you have multiple servers, this is the correct order to apply said updates;

Client Access Server (if you have multiple sites internet facing sites first)
Hub Transport
Unified Messaging

Oh said SBS....nvm....HAD you been on a site with multiple Exchange servers the above would apply.

Please don't award me any points....just confirming correct answer by Ivan.
