I bought this book to complement the Jang text in preparation for the RHCE. Strictly as a study guide for the RHCE, I would have some concerns. It is somewhat light on explaining theories and concepts before jumping into examples and steps to complete RHCT/RHCE tasks. In addition, there are a few areas (i.e., setting up an LDAP client) where the task includes some unnecessary steps. I got the impression that these extra steps were probably good practice or driven by internal policy, but I rather thought that should have been explained.

As far as an administrator's reference, I think the text does a really good job. It gives many useful examples, and covers a great deal of ground that is not included by the RHCT/RHCE exams, but is really important if you will actually be administering RedHat boxes.

I could not recommend this as the only source for study for the exams, but it is a great complement to the Jang text, providing additional examples and a slightly different take on how to accomplish some tasks. Ultimately, I'm glad I bought it, and will keep it around as a reference.

Well, it's a new book on the topic.
I found it to be a lot more concise than Jang's. It actually gives you a lot more information than Jang's book (in terms of commands you need to be familiar with, examples and explaining basic principles), it just does so in approximately same number of pages.

Troubleshooting and exercise section are located at the end of the book and offer scenarios that one could really expect during the exam. There are few minor errors though (commands for creating sw RAID, for example), but it's something you can check on various other resources.

I put this book on #1 place for RHCE preparation. Complemented with Jang's book and official RedHat's "RHEL Deployment guide", there's nothing else you need in terms of textbooks to prepare for the exam.

Very recommended, high quality material. Good reference for everyday sysadmin work.

I am very satisfied with this purchase. This book is great for RHCE preparation as well as for reference.
Content is very neatly organized into 30 chapters (no repetition of same content as most of books do) last chapter is dedicated for troubleshooting.

You won't feel bored while reading this book; concepts are explained with diagrams wherever necessary. All configurations are well explained in steps with appropriate example that makes it easy to remember & implement practically. The most unique feature of this book is easy browsing throughout the content, as the author dedicated a separate chapter to key configurations like mail server, DNS, NFS, Samba, SCP etc.

If you are looking for a RHEL book for RHCE/RHCT self-preparation as well as a good reference must give it a try.

Wow! After reading all of the rave reviews and evaluating the table of contents I purchased an electronic copy. I was hoping to find a great tutorial / reference book for my Linux students.

On the bright side, I think the topics covered are exactly what needs to be covered in a Linux technical book. I like the brief descriptions of the commands and concepts. I like the concise examples and different inflections of the commands. I, like the author, think the students need to get the extended information from the man pages.

On the bad side though, there are too many explanations that are flat out wrong. I've got a hunch that the author ported a lot of the concepts from Korn shell and assumed they would be perfectly transportable to Bash. Yikes!

What always makes me wary of an author's expertise is their description of an exported variable as a "global" variable instead of a "passed" variable. That's a huge rookie mistake that will really confuse neophyte Linux users. Also, child processes not surviving the parent's termination. By default (depending on shell option settings), in Bash, the children will not receive a Hangup signal and will, indeed, survive. Those are just two of the many misconceptions I've found in the book.

In summary, I like the layout of the book, I like the flow of the book, and I like the author's writing style. I just can't get past the huge technical flaws.

I've worked with Linux since 1994 and I've already seen a lot of books about Linux and some focused in
RHCE test. All of them are good books, but are very superficial stuff.

This book from Asghar Ghori is a very complete book directed to any people who need learn Linux, Red Hat Linux
in particular, and was so well written.Ghori knows exactly how hard is doing the RHCE test and he created a detailed book.

There are 31 chapter inside the book and all of them are enough to pass the exam. I'm right that even someone knows
very well Linux could learn a little with this material. Pay attention in the last chapter: the author show some
troubleshooting problems the you could see in the exam.

Follow the chapters:

1) Overview
2) Files and Directories
3) File and Directory Permissions
4) Text Editors and Processors
5) The Shells
6) Basic Shell Scripting
7) System Processes
8) System Administration and Hardware
9) Installation
10) X Window System and Desktop Managers
11) Software Package Management
12) Users and Groups
13) Disk Partitioning
14) File Systems and Swap
15) Shutdown and Reboot
16) Linux Kernel
17) Backup, Restore and Compression
18) Print Services
19) Job Scheduling and System Logging
20) Basic Networking
21) Network Interface Administration and Routing
22) DNS and DHCP
23) NIS and LDAP
24) Internet Services and Electronic Mail
25) Network Time Protocol
26) NFS and AutoFS
27) Samba
28) Network Installation
29) Web and Caching Proxy Servers
30) System and Network Security
31) System, Network and Security Troubleshooting

I hope I've helped. Good luck for all in the RHCE test.
