  • Please find the download link for SQL 2012 Express. Express edition is a scaledown version.

    SQL 2012 Express - http://www.microsoft.com/en-GB/download/details.aspx?id=29062

    Either download ENU\x86\SQLEXPRADV_x86_ENU.exe or ENU\x64\SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU.exe depending on your processor architecture (32/64 bit)

    SQL 2014 Express - http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=42299

    Either download ExpressAdv 32BIT\SQLEXPRADV_x86_ENU.exe or ExpressAdv 64BIT\SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU.exe depending on your processor architecture (32/64 bit)

    You can also download evaluation edition of SQL Server to try out. They are the same as Enterprise edition but cannot be installed in a production server and will expire after 180 days. Please find the links below

    SQL 2014 Evaluation Edition - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/evalcenter/dn205290.aspx

    SQL 2012 Evaluation Edition - http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=29066

    Note: SQL 2014 is the latest version hence I have given the links for the same as well.

  • To be more specific, If you want only database component of SQL 2012 for long time, you can go for SQL 2012 express. If you want BI tools also along with features like table partioning but for a short time practise you can download an evaluation edition.
