I want to learn Weblogic 10.3 from a developer perspective and to some extent about administration. I have the book "Weblogic 8.1 Unleashed". Can I use it to understand the basics ? Where does it mainly differ from 10.3 Please suggest.

To learn weblogic, the best way is to install it and start using it. Discuss the issue that you come across this process. People here at java ranch would keep helping you, only if you come up with issues.

It actually depends on your proficiency level, the post you are applying for and also on the interviewer :P
As far as I think, as you are a novice, you should know about setDomainEnv.sh/cmd , startWeblogic.sh/cmd files, their location and usage.
Also you should be able to answer about the difference between apache-tomcat server and WLS server.
Apart from these theoretical topics, you should know about installing weblogic on windows/Unix/Linux machines, configuring domains, configuring data sources.
Important topics would include difference between a Weblogic 9.0 server and Weblogic 10.3 server, a little about JMS configuration (may be just an overview will do), how to deploy application on WLS instance and the different techniques for the same, a little about admin server and managed servers (difference will do), a little about node managers and WLST would do (their usage).
You can find about all these in the Oracle standard documentations !
For a practical knowledge, as I suggested, start using the servers and post us your queries. The best person to help you is yourself though !
Hope this helps. Keep posting.
