With over 10 years of experience in smaller databases, I am training myself for for wonderful world of SQL Server. Lately, I passed MTA 98-364 (Database Fundamental) at first attempt with 81/70 passing grade.

I am good data analyst but need to catch up with what is in SQL Server. With this long introduction, I ask my question now.

I am looking for text that an experienced DB Admin may put together for a junior admin like me to add log-ins, rolls and permissions. The intent here is to cover a wide range of possibilities for training and this will done all on a test installation.

Do you know any resources (books, links, etc.) that I can use and continue with my practice?

I am looking for a resource with substantial examples.

As a starting point, I'd look at the security principals in MSDN.  If you're comfortable in the exam study guide format, and are looking to continue your studies with the idea of taking another Microsoft exam, you might pick up the MS Press Book on 70-462:Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases... because it'll give you the material you want to look at AFTER you've gotten the hang of security principals as well.  (I keep my 2008 version close at hand as a reference when I brainlock.)

I am preparing for 70-461 now. And I have read a lot about the login, roles, etc. and watched vidoes. At some point I will tackle 70-462. But what I need now is some instruction stated in my original post to get my feet wet. Of course I can start doing things (create logins etc. on my own, but I want some instructions with some thought and planing behind it).

Don't know what you're using as a reference for the Query fundamentals test, but I'd suggest adding Itzik Ben-Gan's T-SQL Fundamentals book to your sources.  With no reservations, I'd recommend his entire black book series if you go down the programming path.
