As a homeschool family we decided to try this book for a LINUX course. So far happy with just about everything EXCEPT - there are no solutions to the Lab Analysis Tests or Key Term Quizes in each Chapter. I wish there was a way to get those! It's important to know you have the correct concepts and answers in learning anything.

I thought this book was an excellent reference. I like the fact that each command was followed by a definition, as well as several examples. The print was easy to read. The verbiage was not to complicated for my small brain.
