    nicely written

    I like Sybex books based on how easy the reading is. I can actually read these without passing out on the couch or in front of the computer. I would also recommend getting another book or researching some of the chapters in this book to get the whole picture. I took a transcender test on Linux+ and this book didn't hit hard on some of the questions that I got thrown at me. If you're looking for certification, I do recommend this book as a starter, but I also recommend using linux, and getting familiar with everything in this book before taking the test.
