    If you are Not going to support 2003 in your job, then no.

    If you can afford it and have time, then yes go for it.

    cool,yes i have a few 2003 servers to support...but is it worth it if all 2003 servers are upgraded to 2008 in a couple of years?

    It really wont help to learn now if you don't have an S2008 boxes to use while learning, If you knew the servers were going to be updated to S2008 in six months, I would say go ahead and learn now, otherwise catch up with S2003 for now.

    If you could afford a budget server to install S2008 onto at home to play with, then that would be a huge advantage for the future.

    S2008 loves memory, a minimum of 4gb for it to get out of the gate on clean install without any configuration, 8~16 for what you want to do.

    You won't use 90% of it, as long as you can remember enough to pass the test, you will be fine.
