Can a Ranger in medium or light armor fight as if she had the Ambidexterity and Two Weapon Fighting feats?

Ambidexterity does not exist in 3.5 – Eldebryn Jun 4 '12 at 13:13
My bad... I did not know that Ambidexterity was removed. My GM said it was still there. – Ina Lola Jun 4 '12 at 13:47
The feat can be patched back in by the GM. – SevenSidedDie Jun 4 '12 at 17:21

You seem to have some confusion to the point of not having read the 3.5e player's handbook?

The 3.5e ranger class can select a combat style at second level. One of those two styles gets you the equivalent of the two-weapon fighting feat for free without having to meet prereqs. There is no Ambidexterity feat in 3.5e.

So yes, at second level, IF you select the two-weapon combat fighting style instead of archery, with the caveat that there is no Ambidexterity.

The short answer as I recall: Yes

Long answer: As long as said ranger has the class feature or two weapon feat. I also seem to recall that in 3.5 Ambidexterity was removed as a feat and was just included in TWF.
