  • Hi,

    If you already have experience from previous Windows Server releases, then I suggest you have a look at the new features in Windows Server 2016.

    If you want to get certified I suggest you have a look at the Windows Server 2016 certification below:

    You can check under the "Certification Exams and prep resources" for the path on how to get the certification.

    There are three (3) exams you are required to pass to receive the MCSA: Windows Server 2016 certification:

    1. Exam 70-740
    2. Exam 70-741
    3. Exam 70-742

    Under each exam there's an "Optional training" link which will take you to a optional course page.

    A good start would also be to set up an own lab at home and do different kinds of installations/configurations, just play around and get to know things.

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Leon,

    Thank you so much for your prompt reply. That was my plan initially, however I noticed that the MCSA certification requires a knowledge that I don't have. To be completely honest I never used Win Server. I guess I will have to start from the beginning with the exam 98-365. The only thing for me is that I read in blogs that since Win Server 2016 is fairly new there is not a lot of study material available like there is with Win Server 2012. Also I don't have access to Win Server 2016, but I saw I can download a trial version. I wonder if that version is enough to use a study source. My other option is using the Win Server 2012 software to practice for the Win Server 2016, I am not sure if that is a good idea. Hopefully you will have some answers for me and some guidance.

    Kind regards,

    Fernando

  • The 98-365 (Windows Server Administration Fundamentals) is a good exam to start with, the self-paced labs which Dave gave links to are also a very good source to start learning.

    While there are some differences between Windows Server 2012 "R2" and 2016, most things are still very similar so I don't personally see any problems finding reading/learning material for Windows Server 2012/2012R2!
