    I'm also studying for Linux+.

    The only resources I'm using that you haven't listed is the CBT Nuggets: Linux Essentials by Shawn Powers.

    It seems to go along well with Chapter 1 of the LPI Study Guide we both have.

    Best of luck.

    OP,

    I'm also studying for Linux+. I've been watching Shawn Power's CBT Nugget, the LPIC prep, as I wait for my Sybex Linux+ 103/104 study guide.

    I also signed up for Linux Academy, but kind of regret it. Great community, but I wasn't really feeling it. In addition, their videos are out of date. It may not be a big difference, buy their topics are following LX0-101 and 102.

    Of course, a CBT Nugget subscription cost a lot more, but they do offer a 7 day trial. I'm hoping I can get by with their 7 day trial and not have to pay for more time. If anything, the free trial definitely helps with diving into the material.

    They added the new topics to the bottom of the list. I scrolled all the way down and the title says, "2015 Objective Updates"
    It looks like the 101/102 information stayed the same for the new exams. I might not be 100% correct though.
    Booya!!
