I got a copy of Server 2012 R2 Standard. What can I do with it?

I'm applying for jobs as a junior network admin, and am working towards jobs in data centers. I thought it might be useful for me to know at least a little about the server OS's themselves.

I found a copy of Server 2012 R2 Standard on ebay, and I already have a bunch of activation codes for various Server versions.

So I loaded it up on a hard drive in one of my unused computers and it works. But I haven't got the slightest idea of what to do with it.

Any suggestions? What can I explore, what can I configure, etc?

    If you don't want to spend any money on study materials, you can check out the MCSA videos on Cybrary.

    Awesome! Try making it into a domain controller and adding other workstations to the domain. Also try the Web server role and pick some others.
    When you go the extra mile, there's no traffic.
