Microsoft Self Study Guides
I have decided to bring together all the references and links that I use for my Self Study and Lab activities to do with the Microsoft System Center Suite.
What it takes is the discipline to methodically go through each activity until it becomes second nature and you understand the concepts, principles, theory and practice of implementing, managing and designing infrastructure.
My specialty is System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1, however, I have also gathered a whole range of links that I have found helpful and put in on one page.
I have other URLs pertaining to Deployments here.
TechNet Virtual Labs for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1
06. Converting Packages to Applications Using Package Conversion Manager in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1
Self Study Guides from the Midnight Musings of a Support Escalation Engineer Website
Some of the links within these URLs are not as current for the labs specifically but the other URLs you will find very useful.

It appears the original pages were lost when the curator left his role and I have had to retrieve and recreate the information from a cached Google resource.
