I couldn't get on with this book at all in all honesty reading it is like watching paint dry, The author just skips around to much bombards you will commands and switches with out proper explanation, The book is also seriously lacking in exercises. I can see alot of people who are new to Linux putting put off by reading this.

A better approach would be a recipe book complete with labs and exercises and with easy to follow explanations to much waffle and not approachable if you are new to Linux.

Hence the two stars

Okay, good enough 23 Feb. 2013
By T.S. Ward - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The thing to do today with Linux+ books apparently is to develop ones that aren't complete. Robb Tracy's book and this book are both missing a good deal of information for the cert. Robb Tracy's book however is missing a LOT MORE; also a good amount of information in Tracy's book is just plain wrong (capabilities of a command, options, etc..). Since I read both of the popular cert guides, I'll give my opinion on them both.

If you're shopping for a book and you're completely new to Linux I would start with Tracy's book (yes even though it has a few things wrong). Tracy's book seems catered to the beginner. Just be sure to do a man page of every command he gives which you should do with any book because you cannot rely on what they tell you for options to do know for a command; in Tracy's case though you're doing it because it might be one of the ones he got wrong.

If you're not new to linux and have at least some experience, I would just buy this book and ignore Tracy's book. I really want to say ignore Tracy's book altogether but Roderick's book is so dry, dull, and man page like that if you lack at least some introductory knowledge this book might kill you. I didn't subtract any stars for that because, personally, I like that. I always see complaints about cert guides not being great for beginners because it didn't explain things for well or something of the sort. Well waaaa. A cert guide is not a Dummies guide, they're a guide to a certification.

The tests that come with this book are a joke. They don't do anything for you except reinforce that you memorized what he said, not that you understand it enough it to take a real test; which again, is only an issue if you're new. Don't rely on this tests, go to LPICs website, they have links to other sites that have practice tests. Be warned that a lot of tests out there aren't real, they aren't actually material for this exam; which is why you shouldn't go outside the resources at LPIC's site. A lot of the websites, apps, and tests for purchase aren't actually Linux+/LPIC-1. They are OLD LPIC-1 or current LPIC-2. One such test floating around that is labeled as Linux+/LPIC-1 has a ton of technical questions of Samba configuration; Samba isn't on this exam.

The only reason I docked a star is because this book is missing information; not enough that you can't still pass without a problem, but enough that you might be annoyed.

As a side note because I just remembered; Tracy's book absolutely blows for LX0-102 (the second test), it is missing a ridiculous amount of information about the second test; enough so that if Tracy's guide was your only book (and you're somewhat new) you would fail the second test miserably.

If you care the digital content for this book includes the assessment test from the beginning of the book (to gauge if you're already ready), a hundred or so flashcards, each end of chapter test, and around a 50 question test for both LX0-101 and LX0-102.

not as good as free online study guides 1 Jun. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
LPI has released a study guide for their exams on their website. It it easier to read, has better examples and is more in depth than any book I have bought on the Linux+ exam.

Great info but ordered strange 9 April 2013
By Expert Shopper - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
OK So this book is awesome and gives you all of the info that you need to (hopefully not there yet) pass the test. It is not laid out in the same order of the exam outline- which is strange because it is a test book- but all of the info is there.

decent but has some shortcomings 3 July 2013
By computergeekchris - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this book is pretty detailed in everything and the author really seems to know what he is talking about. However it is hard to target the information for each section and test. The organization he set up was hard for me to understand until I poured over the index and specifically wrote down where to skip to continue going over each of the four sections for test 1 (lx0-101), which is pretty aggravating. I wish he had organized this better.

Another issue is that there is a lot of information presented in this book, so it is definitely not for beginners. It is also hard to pull out which pieces of information are the most important for the exams.

I read it cover to cover and now I am skipping through the topics taking pretty detailed notes trying to pull out the parts that are most beneficial to study for the exam, which is taking a while.

If you have some experience (2-3+ years) this should be an "ok" book to use. You should at least be familiar with all of the topics and concepts presented in the chapter or you risk getting lost pretty quick. I'm glad I didn't use this as a beginner.

Excellent companion 28 Mar. 2013
By Erik l Gerwell - Published on

Taking a course in college for Linux and wanted to take the cert test afterwards. Decided to get this book along with the course material and it not only has gotten me ready for the test but has assisted me in my course as well. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to start out in the Linux admin field.
