Related area of expertise:
•Basic PC hardware skills
•Basic Windows knowledge
•If necessary, consider all or parts of the A+ 2012 course and the 70-687 course as a foundation
•Windows Server 2012 knowledge would also be helpful. Consider the 70-410 course to learn a server foundation.
•Viewers who also want to practice Windows 8 administration on their own can do follow most of the demos on a single Windows 8 computer. However, it is strongly recommended that you use virtualization software such as virtual box, VMware, or Hyper-V to install and test multiple other machines. In particular, much of this course uses multiple machines at once and you will need at least a domain controller and one other server besides Windows 8.
