Which is recommended for studying for MCSA? Server Core Installation, or Server with a GUI?

    to just learn, Server with a GUI. or you can setup a few VMs, some with server core and some with GUI to play around, I setup two VMs with GUI to learn and one with server core as my file server at home.

    Core if you are new to using PowerShell. Force yourself to drive with the command line. Plus it's fun ;)
