Getting a copy of Windows 2008 R2 for MCITP study purposes RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been studying for the MCITP and my evaluation period for my 2008 server just ran out and I am nowhere near being finished with preparation for the exams.  What does someone do in this situation?  I don't think I can afford a licence for a full genuine copy.  Anyone have any advice?

  • You can use a trial instalation, like these virtual machines http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/bb738372

  • Mareks suggestion is an excellent one.

    If you do not have the ability to run your own virtual machines, you could also try Microsoft Virtual labs:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/virtuallabs/bb467605

    These are a series of hosted virtual environments. They include lab guides to walk you through scenarios, but you could just go in an poke around too.  They are free to use (you will need a live ID to log in). I often recommend the virtual labs to my students as a supplement to the labs we do in class.

    Good luck preparing for your certification.

  • Since this is an academic exam though it falls under a different scoring system so I was wondering if it was more basic than they exam types you have listed in your link i.e multiple choice type questions?
