Hi Eli,

I watched your videos about Windows Server 2012 and you said some great things about Windows Server 2012 Unleashed by Sams.

There is a Windows Server 2016 Unleashed on Amazon for $36.91 (pre-order).

Do you think this is still a book to go in 2017 for learning stuff you explained in videos like domain controller, DHCP server, DNS server, etc?

Or maybe some online class like Udemy?


The 2012 book was the best around at the time, but it actually wasn’t great. Far better books came out.

If you need to learn 2016 I’d say for $36 it’s fine to buy, but I’d look around a bit first.
