LPI Linux Certification in a Nutshell by Adam Haeder, James Stanger, Bruno Gomes Pessanha, Stephen Addison Schneiter

Linux deployment continues to increase, and so does the demand for qualified and certified Linux system administrators. If you're seeking a job-based certification from the Linux Professional Institute (LPI), this updated guide will help you prepare for the technically challenging LPIC Level 1 Exams 101 and 102.

The third edition of this book is a meticulously researched reference to these exams, written by trainers who work closely with LPI. You'll find an overview of each exam, a summary of the core skills you need, review questions and exercises, as well as a study guide, a practice test, and hints to help you focus.

Major topics include:

  • Critical GNU and Unix commands
  • Linux installation and package management
  • Devices and filesystems
  • Text editing, processing, and printing
  • The X Window System
  • Networking and security
  • Mail transfer agents
  • Email, FTP, and web services

These exams are for junior to mid-level Linux administrators with about two years of practical system administration experience. You should be comfortable with Linux at the command line and capable of performing simple tasks, including system installation and troubleshooting.
