Do You Learn better from books, or accessing?

Have you considered getting an eval version and running it as a VM where you can try different things.

Are you looking at graphical or core?

Hi Expert,

I am fine with books or accessing, but Book have more focus for me. I have Win server in Vmware already.

Thanks!
The scope and scale is vast, you might narrow the search based on topic which may get you further.
I.e. Use your prior knowledge with earlier versions.

my suggestion, is to get familiar with using powershell to manage Windows server of any version core install. Including deploying SQL server.
Since you are already using virtualization, core versions reduce the resource demand of the VM.

Hi Expert,

Thanks for reverting back.

I am looking at learning GPO, DHCP and DNS, been studying some on linkedin.com but certain things barley understand, book might be easier to understand.

Thanks!
Best create another 2 VM.
Setup one as the DC, the other as a member server. And a workstation.

You can lookup documentation, guides per component

DHCP within VM, environment if you have a way vlan, segment network.
Such that it can be isolated as its own environment but yet still accessible from ..

the three can help you test out and build up experience.

I would start with online courses. There are many on Udemy and they are free. You can select the level and the topic.
You can also find many tutorials on YouTube
And if you want to learn GPO, DHCP, and DNS, it doesn't have to be exactly the Windows Server 2016 course. The concept of these roles doesn't change.

Thanks all for the kind advice.
