Disclaimer: I passed both exams (on the first try even!)The book offers fairly comprehensive coverage of important Linux concepts, commands, and files. The included VMs and eBook are a nice touch. I could even see myself using this as a real-life reference, provided I was in somehow in a situation where I had access to the book, but not the man pages or Google. In any case, close study of the book will increase your practical Linux knowledge.However...The exam isn't practical (nor do I think it's intended to be). It's pedantic as all get out. There are hundreds of great Linux administration books out there (and even better support in the online community), but one doesn't buy this book as an admin guide. You buy it to prepare for the CompTIA Linux+ exam. The book falls short.I've taken industry exams previously (IT and finance), and the material in this book was further divorced from the real exam than anything I've sat for previously. About 20% of the questions I saw on the exam were not addressed in the book whatsoever (e.g. 'noclobber,' 'batch'). About the same number were covered in a totally different syntax than what the exam tested (e.g. chown and creating bash functions). In fairness, the author cautions that no one knows for sure what CompTIA will put on the test, but I found better analogs to the real test for free online (not in sufficient quantities, mind you). With this in mind, I have a hard time believing that CompTIA is such a bastion of secrecy that the author, who holds this certification himself, can't get any closer to the real thing (with apologies to Mr. Tracy if that's the case).
