TOO EXPENSIVE for a so called Linux book 17 Oct. 2009
By Donatello Adonis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because my class Linux Essentials IST190 at Trident Technical College requires it. First of all, the book is very expensive, you can get the entire PDF file on Novell's website ( [...])for free instead of paying the overpriced tag of $[...] for it. The only difference between the book and the PDF file is that the PDF file does not have the chapter review questions and key terms. Moreover, this book covers only one flavor of Linux which is the SUSE 9.0, therefore, not enough information covered for the CompTIA's Linux+ exam. Nevertheless, the book is good for those who don't know anything about Linux and want to get the basics of the operating system. However, I wouldn't recommend this book for an intermediate or advance Linux user to use it as a source for the Linux+ exam or any other Linux certification. It has many TYPOS, it does not cover in depth how to use the command line interface, and after chapter 3, the author expects for you to be a Linux intermediate user by explaining the barely basics of the OS. So, if you need this book for your Linux class, then you have no choice but to get it. I recommend you to buy a used book instead, not worth spending $[...] for this CRAP. But if you want to learn linux on your own, I recommend Linux Bible, Linux Pocket guide or get the free PDF file on Novell's website.

It's a textbook. Good luck. 24 May 2008
By lucaswj - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is clearly meant to satisfy some course requirements that Novell has for its SuSe training, but as a book geared toward the Linux+ certification, it seems lacking.

Its organization sometimes presumes you've learned things it only mentions in later chapters. There's little distinction made between information that's required for Linux+ and that which isn't. The exercises are useful, however.

As a book geared toward a newcomer, however, it's rather daunting. If you need this book for a class, you've got no choice but to buy it. If you don't, and want to learn Linux on your own, you'd probably be better looking elsewhere.

Thompson's guide to SUSE 9.2, Training Manual 19 Sept. 2007
By Thomas C. Ellis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Good manual with quite a few typos. WEB site did not have corrections. You must use the distro that comes with the book or you will not get the desired results from the exercises. Even still the typos will leave you scratching your head in some cases. This is a Junior College class manual and I am pleased with it and the past Thompsom training guides that I have been exposed to. Price is a little steep.

Not for beginners 15 Sept. 2007
By B. BARNETT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is good for someone with existing experience in UNIX. I would not buy this book if I was entirely new to UNIX since the author make assumptions that you already know about certain concepts.

Book Review 22 Jun. 2009
By John Schotta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Excellent value on this book purchased. It came in as advertised for a book in "Very Good" condition. The DVD's had not been opened and the book has no marks in it at all and only 1 noticable crease on the front cover. Well worth the money!
