    Windows 10 Certification - I need access to Windows 10 / tools / lab


    Looking for some help / direction with Windows 10 certification. I do not have access to a copy of Windows 10 and I don't have a Windows Server. In the labs I am taking thru Global Knowledge there are lots of questions about Group Policy, Active Directory - and Federation Services ..... In my daily job I do not touch any of this stuff - and I don't have the cash to go out and buy all of this equipment and the O/Ss - what do you guys do to set up a legitimate lab that you walk thru and learn this stuff. I can download Transcender questions but that doesn't really help me unless I actually walk thru the steps. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Hulapopr2002

    Microsoft's TechNet Evaluation Center offers free downloads of OSes and platforms for evaluation (and learning) purposes, as well as virtual labs. Here's a small subset of what's accessible to you there, after you register with an MS Live account:

    I've been working with and writing about MS certification topics since 1994, and have made frequent and repeated use of this resource to grab software I needed to run to prep for and write about cert exams. No reason why you can't do likewise.

    Happy to be of service. This stuff lets me run labs and test out practice scenarios for all kinds of stuff, including cert prep. Hope it works for you, too.
