Hackthebox.eu (HTB)

I strongly recommend the boxes on the hackthebox.eu to study for OSCP cert. HTB have a good set of windows boxes to training: Devel, Optimum, Bastard, Grandpa and Blue.

PS: It's necessary solve a little "challenge" to obtain the invite.

Recommended books:

Penetration Testing: A Hands-On Introduction to Hacking (+Highly recommended for beginners)
Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Edition
Rtfm: Red Team Field Manual
The Web Application Hacker's Handbook: Finding and Exploiting Security Flaws
The Hacker Playbook: Practical Guide To Penetration Testing
