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!
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!
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.
