  • There are many good books out there for PowerShell and Exchange.  Being specific to Exchange, I'd suggest the Exchange Server 2010 Administrator's Pocket Consultant (W Stanek), specifically Chapter 4.  But your best guide is to familiarize yourself with the shell commands, and specifically, to view the output of the Exchange Management Shell Command Log, when you open the EMC.  You can also view the commands that a wizard has run when it completes (you can copy them out using Ctrl-C and paste them into a OneNote for future reference), as well as when you make changes to the properties of an object (press the Open Shell Commands, lower left corner of properties mage when making changesbutton in lower left corner of properties of an object).  These will show you what commands the console uses, and will give you good insight as to how you can use the same commands yourself.

    I also recommend you get a basic book on PowerShell itself - I have Windows PowerShell Step by Step (E Wilson) - so you can get an idea of how loops, variables, and Boolean statements can be used.  Oh, and you'll also want to dig into how to form valid Regular Expressions (RegExs), whether you use online references or books.  You'll find these can be highly useful as you learn more about the language.
