The book serves well enough for brushing up. But you definitely need to use another book as well. There are a large number of mistakes, some of which aren't completely evident at first glance. The labs are seriously broken. They have you do things that are supposed to break your system, that does not do so. One example, remove your /etc/inittab file and reboot. Well, in RHEL5 and below, yes, your system is broken. In 6, nope. Inittab is deprecated. Removing this will not break your system. It's these kinds of errors that seriously leave this book lacking. REALLY needs fixing. Recommend looking elsewhere.
