1.0 out of 5 stars Strongly not recommendable., 9 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LPIC-1/CompTIA Linux+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide (Exams LPIC-1/LX0-101 & LX0-102) (Hardcover)
There are several reasons for which I would not recommend this book, let's enumerate them:
- First, it doesn't follow any order of the Linux+ exams, other editorial divide the book in first exam subjects and then second exam subjects, in this one everything is mixed.
- Too much useless redundant information or personal about the author, like that he's not good memorizing things or that he loves rsync utility to make a mirror of his own computer, or that he prefer SUSE...something really annoying in the whole book for having too much references to SuSe tools like YaST that has no relation with the CompTIA/LPI exam.
- If you just summarize the entire book in the useful information for the exam, you will have less than 50 pages (the proof is that I already did it).
- Has strong lack of objectives of the exam, and even basic question as the immutable flag in files that doesn't appear. The chapter about VI, among others, is so huge in useless content and lack of useful ones that in the exam you will feel scammed when you have questions like "how to copy 16 lines of a text file with a command in vi from the line in which the cursor is?".
- The exam has lots of no options questions, like "write the command with which you can do exactly THIS task" and you have to write with no faults the command. THE BOOK doesn't say that.
- The companion CD has an amazing exam to be runned ON WINDOWS? Hello?

I first did the A+ exam studying with another editorial and I was feeling, I AM feeling like the wikipedia of the A+ because the books were amazing (they're being sold here, three books in a pack, no more tips). After wasting my money to study the Linux+ with this exam and passing the first one with a score of just 540 because most of the questions weren't in the book, I 've just cancelled the second exam appointment, I've thrown away this book, and buy GOOD ones with another editorial, the same one I used to learn the A+.

That's my recommendation. Thanks.
