Here are some of the course reviews (see more below):
by Willie Beale, (5/5) GREAT COURSE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Truly one of the best course on udemy. For months after getting my A+, MCITP and MCTS windows 7 I could not get an interview anywhere but after taking this course and using the resume template within a week after submitting my resume to several companies I got 3 interviews. Highly recommended. Instructor is great I've watched this course 5 times already.
by Kurt Schmucker, (5/5) Excellent course
A very good course, with excellent hands-on configuration of virtual machines (VMs). I can only imagine how tough it must have been to learn these IT skills before VMs became prevalent and so easy to install, configure, throw away, etc. I am learning exactly the items I needed.
by Robert Martin, (5/5) Nothing that you don't need to sift through to get the gems!
I love this course! It is concise and to the point giving students the luxury of not having to figure out what the "important" tidbits of information are. It ALL is, and that's a refreshing difference from most other online tutorials I've waded through. Thanks for good design and lesson planning!
by Corey Carter, (5/5) Invaluable
There are a lot of courses on udemy with regard to Windows System Administration but I am glad I chose this one. I about 175 days left on my eval copy of windows server and plan to use it to really practice all the things I learned in this course. It is a beginner course and feels like one so if you're at all wondering if you should take it, stop wondering and take it!
by Travis Coles, (5/5) Great Instruction
Very practical, easy to understand lectures. The quality is excellent and the instructor's delivery was spot on. I can't wait for the next course.
by Roshan Ally, (5/5) Awesome course
This is an excellent beginner`s course in Windows Server 2012 R2. William explain and demonstrated some important and useful tasks that the sys admin will do. I learn a few things about virtualbox as well. I enjoy following along and do the tasks as well. I now feel more cofident about the Windows Server Operating System. I do hope that William will follow up with intermediate and advanced level courses.

I've been working in the IT field for over 7 years. Through my career I have had opportunities to learn skills on the job and I want to share them with you! Best of all, you don't even need to have an IT job to begin learning these skills! In this course I am going to show you how to learn what you need to know to get an IT job right from your home!
Getting your first IT job can be very frustrating! In this lecture I am going to cover a few things you can do to help you get an IT job. Make sure you check the resources section because I have included an example resume you can use that includes experience gained from this course!
In this lecture we will install the most important piece of software for this course. Oracle VM VirtualBox is free software that will allow you to build Virtual Machines (VMs). You can also setup internal networks with VirtualBox so your VMs can communicate internally, drag & drop between your host and VM, and much more! If you want to be a System Administrator you HAVE to understand how to use Virtual Macines!
In this lecture I am going to show you how to download Microsoft's Windows Server 2012 for FREE (100% legal)! Microsoft offers free version of their server software than anyone can use for a limited amount of time (180-260 days). If you need more time, you can open CMD as an administrator and run "slmgr.vbs /rearm". This will give you an extension on your license. You can do this up to two times! As a System Administrator you will have times where you need to setup a Windows Server 2012 server and you will not always have a license key. This is how you can download the software!
In this lecture we will answer the question: "What is a virtual machine?" A simple way to think of it is a computer in a computer...a VM emulates a real computer. The benefit of a VM is that you can run multiple "computers" on a single comple. Since these VMs are files stored on the computer it is very easy to transport a VM from one computer to another. System Administrators MUST understand what Virtual Machine's are!
Roughly less than 1% of Udemy students leave a review! PLEASE make my day by leaving this course a review! If you feel the course needs more work, please message me first and I will fix whatever you feel is wrong. Thanks!!!
In this lecture you will learn how to create a Virtual Machine and understand dynamic (also referred to as thick / thin) HDD provisioning. Remember that you can create / copy / delete VMs at any time. As a System Administrator I recommend that you keep an updated backup available just in case you crash your server.
Every System Adminstrator MUST know how to install Microsoft Windows Server 2012 - no excuses and no exceptions! In this lecture I will show you how to do just that! Thankfully it isn't too complicated and depending on your computer speed generally takes less than 20 minutes!
The most basic task you MUST be able to complete as a System Administrator is setting up and configuring the Active Directory Domain Services on Microsoft Windows Server 2012. In this easy to follow lecture I will show you how to do just that!
As a System Administrator (Sys Admin) you will be asked to add additional Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) to servers that are already built and in operation. In this lecture I will show you how to add and configure a secondary HDD to our Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Domain Controller. We will use this second HDD as a share drive for our users.
In this lecture we will be creating a share drive so users in our domain can access and share files across computers.
In this lecture we will learn how to make an Organizational Unit. I also cover how to removed protection on an OU so we can delete them if necessary.
In this lecture I show you how to create a user account and add the appropriate memberships.
In this lecture I will show you how to download the Windows 10 trial.
In this lecture we are going to create our VM for our workstation and install Windows 10.
In this lecture we will be joining the Windows 10 VM we just created to our domain.
Learn how to Create and Manage Groups in Active Directory.
It's time to create a non-administrator account for testing purposes.
This is another task you will be required to do frequently in Active Directory! Don't skip this lecture!
In this lecture we will setup a shared folder on our data drive and configure Group Policy to automatically map the drive as a network drive called Projcets (P).
In this lecture, we will be place a file on Domain Users computers. This is useful when you have specific files that all of your users will want access to.
In this lecture we set the desktop wallpaper we downloaded earlier as the wallpaper our domain users will see when they log in.

Paul is an IT Professional with over 8 years of experience currently working as a Network Administrator in contract support of various Federal Agencies in the United States.
Paul began his career by volunteering his computer skills at his local church at the age of 16. He identified a technology problem the church was having and designed a system to fix it . Other IT Professionals at the church encouraged Paul to continue utilizing his skills to gain experience, and emphasized that he should include it on his resume even though his experience wasn't paid. Based solely on the experience he gained volunteering, a large DoD contracting company hired Paul as an intern. As his career progressed, Paul moved on to another Large company to work full time.
Paul constantly pushes himself to increase the depth of his knowledge in the field of Information Technology and expand his skill-set, whether on the job or at home. Paul gratefully notes that he “had the blessing of working alongside highly motivated and talented professionals” who continually inspired and pushed him to take challenges head-on, and to make EVERYTHING you can out of opportunities that arise while on the job. His motto is "Any job is what you make of it. You write your own resume and paycheck by your drive to succeed."
Paul's goal on Udemy is to help YOU get an IT job by providing you a basic skill-set. The fact is that most entry level IT jobs (Help Desk) in the NCR are paying only 10k under the median HOUSE HOLD income from just ONE entry level job and a much higher potential to double or triple the median house hold income throughout one's career. The IT field is viewed as very difficult to enter, but if you have a good skill-set and determination to succeed, you WILL get hired!
