  • Hi there 

    You can view the differences between these versions in microsoft documentation :

    For training I suggest the Datacenter edition trial so you will have full features.

    There are some good Video Tutorial Courses on CBT Nuggets and Plural Sight websites. And they will cost you but it worth it.

    You can train by getting free ebooks or purchasing the microsoft press official training kit.

    Have fun training

  • My recommendation it using all the tools: 

    1. Virtual Learning (MVA, TrainSignal, CBT and others) 
    2. Practical learning, download a trial version of 180 days, will install on one computer (you can also local virtual system) 
    3. Learning from Microsoft Press books

  • Hi,

    Thanx for the reply.

    I have started download from Microsoft and it is kinda downloading .exe, I guess it is for virtual machines. 

    Can I get it on .ISO or later convert it to .ISO ?

  • Hi there 

    Post the link you are downloading so I can check it for you. Its usually an ISO.
