    hey guys,
    Not sure if this is the right section but besides that.

    I would really like to learn more about active directory as it seems like its mandatory for career in IT. I already have a good idea what it is\does.

    If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

    ^Dan is correct as usual. The best way to learn it is to use it. Below is a link to a helpful "tutorial" that can walk you through some basic "how to" scenarios.

    Depending on how far you want to go with it, there are MSDN and Technet subscriptions that allow you to evaluate pretty much everything MS makes.

    While it's hard to get a true feel for it without the unexpected actions of a dozen or more users, it looks good on a resume. I go through quite a few interviews with applicants right out of college with only "class" experience. Any effort taken beyond classes would stand out.
