The book is easy to read and has loads of digestible information.
Each section is long enough to cover the necessary (in-depth) information without having to read twice or three times as much compared to some other books that seem to have 1 to many page in each section making the book enormous in total pages.
I highly recommend this book if you want to get a more in-depth understanding about:
- Windows Server 2012R2
- System Center (on-premises and hybrid setup)
- Microsoft Azure (cloud offering)
Finally thank you to the author for taking the time to spread knowledge!

- This book was amazing
- Skillpipe Official Courseware was pretty good
- Various Microsoft Press books for Server 2012 infrastructure 70-410 through 70-414
Mastering Hyper-V 2012 R2 with System Center actually explains some of the priorities of the exam. I thought the book was light on some issues involving System Center, but definitely better than all of the other resources.
John Savill does some pretty intense work the 70-412 course on Udemy (VIDEO)
John Savill has a very good video summary on the history of Hyper-V somewhere online (VIDEO)
This guy writes great books.
The explanation of Hyper-V's networking was particularly useful.
