    Question 70-410: Labs where to start

    Hello,

    For the past month and a half I have been studying for the 70-410 exam, in order to get my MCP. So far, I have gone through a video training course and have some great notes. The next step I would like to pursue is setting up a correct lab environment that will allow me to practice the material that will be covered on this test. Since this is my first time doing anything like this, I am at a loss of where to start. I have some basic questions that I hope some more experienced guys and gals would be able to answer. So here it goes:
    1. What is the correct way to set up a lab?
      I have a copy of Windows 2012 R2 running on a server w/ unlimited an VM license.

    2. Is there a guide or some list that I can follow when it comes to practicing commands?
      Basically, I am looking for structure.

    3. Lastly, is there anything else I should be using besides what I've mentioned and practice test?
    If anyone would be kind enough to help me out with these concerns and issues, I would be thankful.

    Thanks to all that reply,

    Mike

    Check out CBT Nuggets for the 70-410. Hop on their VMs. Free 7 day trial.

    If not, just make some VM's in Virtual Box, or Hyper-VM if you are running Windows 10 or have VMWare Workstation.
    Reason for Win10 or VMware is Nested Virtualization. Where you have a VM which is a hypervisor that can make more VM's in it. If not, do not worry, hyper-v is a small section of the 410.


    To start, just create a domain controller with maybe 2-4gbs of ram. No more is needed in a lab. then create some client vm's.
    start with AD accounts, gpo's, file shares to see how they look on the client computer.

    Look for the free 180day trial of server 2012r2.

    Theres also a free 3 month of Pluralsight if you google how to get it through MS's dev network.
