This book didn't meet my expectations.The book is not bad, but it resembles more a reference guide instead of a teaching book to learn Linux.If you aren't experienced with Linux, you certainly need a second book in order to better understand the details of the different topics.
Good as a teaching tool. Not really a reference book. The questions in the back have full explanation answers in the back. Also, the books skims over the "politics" of Linux since it addresses the LPIC exam You may have a favorite command or shell, but this book doesn't care.
There is a LOT of material to cover for the LPIC-1, and this book manages to organize it in a clear, coherent, informative fashion. I can't say the same for other study guides. You will do well with either the physical version or the Kindle version of this book, as long as you take notes while reading, take the practice tests, keep using the flash cards, and review material once in a while. Each chapter should take a week or two to cover, each section a few hours.
I'm a long-time Ubuntu user who, with help from my good friend Google, has managed to do lots of under-the-covers geeky things and written plenty of scripts for laptops and servers. But a professional admin, I am not.This book served as both a well-organized test-prep vehicle, it was also an excellent text book.Also: get yourself a printed and bound copy of the GNU coreutils documentation. The Urban Penguin website is also very helpful
I am very happy that I purchased this book. I am working on my Linux+ certification right now, even though my school provides the digital version of this book, I feel a little more organized using the actual book. I take extensive notes so having the text book available so I can red the exam essentials helps me so much. I like the way the information is organized and important tips and notes are highlighted within the text.By purchasing the book, you also receive access to the resources, you just have to register the book to get access. You simply complete the purchase verification and they will email you with the access information.The paper quality is good, I used a variety of highlighters, as well as pens on the pages.
I bought this book for a friend of mine so that he could study up and certify, From what he has told me? It is a great book. Christine is a great author that brings a lot of knowledge to every book.
