Hi experts,

I was wondering if anyone could recommend an online resource or book to help me pick up and learn Server 2012 . I have not used 2008 or 2013 but have used 2003. I am looking for the best way to learn server 2012/08 as quickly as possible without having it installed on a machine.

Thank you

I'd recommend going through the Microsoft Virtual Academy (free)

http://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com/Studies/SearchResult.aspx

A lot of presentations from the TechEd events this year (free)  http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/TechEd

Technet Virtual Labs (free)

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/virtuallabs/bb512925

Free VMS to learn on


Thanks

No problem, and I'm some of the 2012 books are going to be great and I will be getting some but most have them haven't been published yet (this spring/summer) so I don't want to comment on books.

Good luck with learning....never ending process :)

Thanks
