Format: Paperback
A reasonably good book, however the questions at the end of each chapter could have been a bit harder.
The book could have went into a bit more detail in parts.
Although I would defn recommend it to anyone, the Cram sheet at the front of the book is very good with the basic facts to remember just before the exam.

Something odd with reviews 18 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The General Linux I Exam Cram (Exam 101) is one of the best Linux books on the market. There is something odd with the reviews posted here, though. As I look at the page numbers listed by some reviewers as containing errors, they don't match with the book I hold in my hand. In fact, they don't even cover the same topics. My assumption, therefore, is that reviews for more than one book are being posted here - explaining why some reviewers are rating it well and others poorly. If you are reading the reviews because you are interested in the General Linux I Exam Cram (ISBN 1-57610-923-2), then you won't find a better title anywhere. On the other hand, if this review is - through some Amazon fluke - posted for any other book, then I have no idea about that title, and I don't know who Chris Hare or any other authors mentioned in some of the reviews are (the book I hold in my hand is written only by Emmett Dulaney).

A good book for the Intermediate to Advanced User 16 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just completed my Linux Professional Institute Certification Exam. I passed by a wide margin. I do have extensive experience in UNIX but only a little in Linux. I used the Exam Cram books as my exclusive preparation for the test. I felt that the "LPI General Linux I" did a good job of preparing me for the LPI 101 test. This is not a book that someone with limited experience in Linux and/or UNIX should use but for a more experienced person it provides a good course of study.
There are some minor problems with the book; the occasional inaccuracy and an unfortunate choice for the font which made it impossible to differentiate between certain letters; but over all I was happy with the book and felt well prepared for the test.

Concise and Handy 17 Aug. 2001
By Stephen Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book will get through the exam (Level I, 101), but barely, even if you memorise and understand everything verbatim. Excellent as a portable revision tool, but only after you have gone through a more thorough reading of a more comprehensive book on Linux. For more indepth stuff, I would hertily recommend "LPIC in a Nutshell". Costs the same and covers both Level I exams (101 AND 102) with double the material and pages.
Overall, LPI General Linux I Exam Cram: Exam 101 is very readable and can serve as a good intro to the world of Linux for those Linux gurus wannabes.
Decent Overview 20 Dec. 2005
By J. Kawakami - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I didn't use this for the test, but it was still a good overview of topics in Linux. It's a good way to find the holes in your knowledge, and get an idea of different ways to do things. It's definitely not as good as the more popular system administration classics.

Meticulously researched! 15 May 2001
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Every objective and subobjective on the actual LPI exam has been addressed in this book - something I can say about no other exam cram/prep/guide title. You won't score 1000 on the exam after reading this book, but that's only because the scale used on the exam does not go up that high! If you read the book from cover to cover and pay attention to the Exam Alerts, and other items, you WILL walk out of the test center with a big smile on your face.
