In time for the SQL Server 2012 launch, the SQL Server 2012 training kit is already ready for download and test drive. It contains content including labs, demos and presentations to help you learn and develop SQL 2012 and BI Solutions. New and updated content will be released periodically and can be downloaded on-demand using the Web Installer.
- Download and launch the Web Installer
- Select the labs, demos and presentations that you want to download
- Install prerequisites (optional)
- When the download process completes, browse to the folder(s) where you installed the content
So Earlier today I installed it and here is my experience:
For some of the downloads, the web installer will open the web browser and let you download PowerPivot for Excel 2010, AdventureWorks database for SQL 2012 etc. So its good to know upfront that the installation is not all self contained, you may have to download and install some items outside the web installer. See below for an example.
