  • Yes, it is not only possible, but in fact it is very common. You can self-study for a certification from the product documentation and articles on Technet and other sources, or you can buy the training books if you feel more comfortable following a structured training guide. Go to each exam description page (such as https://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/exam-70-646.aspx) , and then under "Preparation options" look at the "Books" section.

  • I would recommend to study for Windows Server 2012. Cause WS 2008 R2 is obsolete.


    Kind regards,

  • Hi Calxhit.

    I was self studying, passed the exams easily. It is possible, it just depends on how much effort you gonna put in this.

    You can buy a book on Amazon, download 2008 R2 evaluation .ISO image from Microsoft's website, create virtual machines and install 2008 R2 on it and practice.

    But as Tim said, it would be better for you to take 2012 R2 instead as 2008 R2 is quite old now.
