Even managed to take a sneeky peek at it after presentation and even found it useful and gave even me an insight that i found interesting and helpful.
The 'For Dummies....' series really does not fail to do the job. Clear, simple instructions that can give you a solid understanding and base knowledge to then develop. Gives the starter that much needed jab in the right direction to go deeper.
I have found training DVD "UNIX Essentials" by UnixAcademy that nobody knows about. I found this DVD on Amazon.com but since they do not ship outside US I ordered it directly from CustomFlix.com. It is very cool one, straight to the subject, very useful. I coupled this book with DVD and I believe I learned more then my friend who attended $2000 class.
This book is good , but DVD is DVD, it is like you have class at home. This book is very useful though. When you start with UNIX it is like starting with violin:you have to practice every day and this book paired with the DVD gives much of what you will ever need.
