    I couldn't get past all the glaring grammatical and English language errors... returned it.

    How this book got past the editing stage is beyond me. By the 70th page, I had found so many typos, grammatical errors, and examples of outright butchery to the english language that I lost all faith in the book's ability to prepare me for anything, let alone for a test involving an operating system such as Linux. If the company, author, and editor can't take the time to actually read the book to find the glaring and obvious mistakes in tense and word usage, how could they possibly care to take the time to prepare you for anything?
