Hyper-V 2008 or 2012?

Hey guys recently got a new job, and was informed that Hyper-V was their choice for virtualization. My confusion as an outsource company some of the clients use windows server 2008, and others use 2012. As far as hyper-v is there any big differences I should be worried about. Because after my Security+ I wanted to start studying virtualization I was going to go into VMware, but since we use Hyper-V I was just going to do this instead https://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/exam-74-409.aspx I don't know if I should go with the 2012 test or the old 2008 R2 route instead any suggestions?

    Everything I've read says 2008 sucks while 2012 is respectable.

    2008R2 Hyper-v was decent but 2012R2 Hyper-v is much better. The 74-409 is fairly easy in the terms of a Microsoft test. If you have a desktop with windows 8/8.1 and virtualization support you could get a lot of learning done there.
