So I'm now electing to pursue the MCSA Win Server 2012 and I was wondering what resources you guys would highly recommend? I already have my eyes set on CBT Nuggets and got a virtual lab running on my PC.. Looking to reformat an only PC and stick windows server on it to practice HyperV
With regards to the Panek book would that adequately prepare you for the MCSA? It just seems too condensed to cover the amount of information necessary across all 3 exams. Unless the questions are mostly case studies
Pluralsight (whom acquired Trainsignal) actually just released an ENTIRELY new 70-410 series last month. It is entirely R2.
This comes 2 years after their non R2 release in 2013.
You might want to give them a try. I know I will. They even have a video on setting up your lab environment to follow along.
Here are the video Sections with links.
[h=1]1. Windows Server 2012 R2 (70-410) MCSA and the 70-410 Exam (Intro and Lab Setup)
2. Windows Server 2012 R2 (70-410) Install and Configure Servers
3. Windows Server 2012 R2 (70-410) Core Network Services
4. Windows Server 2012 R2 (70-410) Administer Active Directory
5. Windows Server 2012 R2 (70-410) Manage Group Policy[/h]
If anyone has any experience or review of this new series, please fill us in!

I also found the videos on Microsoft Virtual Academy to be an excellent resource for deeper dives in to storage, clustering and virtualization. I watched the following videos:

Windows Server 2012 R2: Active Directory Enhancements
