Good Linux administration overview as well as study guide 18 Dec. 2005
By Charles Rutledge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I picked this book up to use as a study guide for taking the LPIC-1 102 exam. (I passed, by the way.) This book was good read that kept my interest and proved a good overview to Linux system administration as well as a LPIC-1 study guide. And it covered a few topics in generally better detail than some other Linux books I've read. Even after the test is passed, I expect I will refer back to this book from time to time as one of my Linux references.

While the material is good and well-written, it expects you have some basic Linux experience. You will not be able to learn Linux from this book. Also the sample questions are easier than you will encounter on the test, so you may want to use an additional resource for sample questions. However, if you study the material in this book, you will pass the test, so don't let the sample questions put you off.

The CD comes with an electronic copy of the book (a big plus, in my consideration), flash card study material that you load on your PDA, and pratice tests, which unlike the real test, are all multiple choice. (The real test is multiple choice and fill in the blank.)

Despite the problems with the questions, I highly recommend this book as both a study guide for the LPIC-1 test and a general Linux reference book for beginning to intermediate users. The author did a good job.

Best among the LPIC prep books 21 Aug. 2006
By Jozsef Veres - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just passed LPIC 101 with a good score thanks to this book. It follows the LPIC objectives very closely. Since the publication of the book the objectives were updated at the end of last year, so you might have to read upon those changed ones.

The author not only covers the objectives of the exam but gives enough background if you need to fill holes. I'm confident to face 102 with this book in my hand and under my pillow.

Please note that I also read Brunson's LPIC I and the just published second edition of LPI Linux Certification in a Nutshell by O'Reilly. The latter one has all four exams covered - 101, 102, 201, and 202. However, it does not give the close following of test objectives as this book does.

Ejoy it, I certainly did. Thank you Mr. Smith.

Comprehensive, but sample exams are useless 29 May 2008
By L. Madar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was a good book to help me prepare for the LPIC 101 and 102 exams, which I passed. It is very comprehensive in its coverage and encompasses everything you will face on the LPIC exams. However, the sample questions and the sample exams on the CD are trivially easy compared to the actual exams. If I had to do it over again, I would not use this as my only source to study.

kindle edition lacking, but good book 22 Feb. 2011
By Don Fouts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have not finished the book, so I don't have a comprehensive review.

I got the kindle edition....

there are some "extra" spaces in the kindle format - making some commands and paths appear to be different than they are, once you get use to it, it is not a big deal - but one issue with the kindle I have noticed i hope they can fix.

also the kindle edition lacks the flashcards and CD content. I am waiting to hear from amazon what plan if any they have to accommodated these features in tech books for the kindle format.

the book so far is written at a very low level - great for newbies, but this is an entry level exam so I don't see that a problem.

LPIC-1 must have study guide 6 Dec. 2007
By S. Piljek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I would dare to say it is the best book to prepare for LPIC-1 today (end of 2007.). It follows LPIC-1 objectives more closely then "LPI Linux Certification in a Nutshell" (which I also own), is well written and keeps your interest. Also, a very good reference for basic linux administration. I've used it as a main study guide for 101 exam ( + various HOWTOs, man pages, and "LPI Linux Certification in a Nutshell") and passed :). Now using it for 102 which I plan to take in a few weeks.
