taking a quick cisco detour this time around and just got approval from work to tackle the linux+/lpic1 exams. these exams have been on my radar for awhile and i'm really looking forward to moving through them.

resources right now are:

- lpi linux certification in a nutshell
- linux commands, editors and shell programming
- the new version of the lpi 101 cbt nuggets (anyone know when the 102 nuggets are going to be released?)


any other suggestions?

    I would add the CompTIA Linux+ Complete Study Guide (Exams LX0-101 and LX0-102) - Sybex.

    I passed Linux+ (lx0-101) last week using this book as study along with transcender practice test. Taking the 2nd part this week, I added the LPI Linux Cert. in a nut shell book as another study source.

    Good Luck!

    Reviving topic. This book was mentioned as a suggestion and i was eyeing it but i'm not really familiar with it at all, besides reading the reviews on amazon. Could someone school me on this book?

    <<
    Amazon.com: Practical Guide to Linux Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming, A (2nd Edition) (9780131367364): Mark G. Sobell: Books
    >>

    Would there be a major overlap if i got this book with the books i have below?

    Should i get this book above to add on to add on to my studying of linux?

    Is there an unix based equivalent to this book that i should know about for solaris 10/freebsd?

    I just bought these books online yesterday:

    LPI Linux in a Nutshell OReilly 2010
    Linux Admin A Beginners Guide 2008
    Hands on guide to RHCSA RHCE Exam - Nightshade's book.

    Hoping to study linux, linux, linux and getting into unix also from now until the end of the year...and beyond!

    any response/help would be appreciated.

    i plan on learning on my basics on centos first. unless i can get a rhel somehow for free. =T

    That is truly a good book. I am taking those test in the summer (while I finish my Linux class for my degree) and I have been using the Linux Admin guide while building my servers. It is very helpful and practical (the iptables coverage leaves something to be desired though).
