Hola everyone,

 Getting ready to start self-studying for my Server 2016 MCSA and just wondering which training video series was better, CBT Nuggets or PluralSight? Thoughts, pros, cons, opinions all welcome and appreciated.

    CBTnuggets is better. Pluralsight pulls videos relating to other ms courses and it's hard to follow if you are going by the blueprint.  So you end up watching videos which has nothing to do with that particular exam.

    CBT nuggets 100%, I used for all 3 exams last year and they follow the exam objectives of each exam. If you google "mcsa 2016 cbt nuggets" and click the first link "Roadmap to Success: MCSA: Windows Server 2016 - CBT Nuggets", there's study plans and talks about it more. CBT nuggets, setting up labs and measureup practice test will lead to success. Good luck!

    Cbt nuggets. I did the mistake of pluralsight. It never helped me too long and boring in my opinion. Cbt keep you focused and it's enjoyable

    CBTnuggets for me. Easy to follow video courses combined with customised labs and mini quizzes. Use the study plan associated with it for guidance. 

    I also agree with @eillinois31, use MeasureUp practice tests at the end as their difficulty and style of questions closely relates to the real exam.
