Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book provides an excellent foundation to understanding Red Hat Linux. It is as readable as any book on this subject that I have come across. Not only is it an excellent guide to Red Hat's certification, it is a fabulous introductory text book." - Chris Spreitler, Vatterott College

"I wish I had this Nick Wells book when I was just starting to study Red Hat. I will use this textbook the next time I teach Linux. The attention to detail is comprehensive, and complicated themes are examined and explained in language that anyone can understand." - Dave Venable, Boise State University

Customer Reviews

This book is very well written and easy to read.

The Complete Guide to Linux System Administration is very informative and suitable for the audience new to Linux.
A. Ross
Same with theoretical and hands-on: just a great mix that makes the topic stay alive in the mind.

I'm taking a Linux Admin class at a Technical School. The instructor has used this book for a few years and said he sticks with this text because he hasn't found a better one. I can see why. The author has managed to introduce complex topics early but not in depth. And then, when he goes into detail later, a lot of the ground work has been laid. This technique helps make the book readable and more concise. The books seems complete, it reads well, and it's well indexed. I recommend it for people looking at Linux for the first time or for people who are looking back at *nix after many years.

I am finishing my Masters degree and using this book together with Advanced Guide to Linux Networking and Security by Ed Sawicki and Nicholas Wells. Both books are very good. The Complete Guide to Linux System Administration is very informative and suitable for the audience new to Linux. Some topics overlap but I found it to be a good thing. This is the book I am going to keep after I finish my studies.

Awesome book to learn linux. Didn't really use the fedora, but the same applies to ubuntu or any other. This book is big and has a little of everything about linux. Has step-by-step exercises and is rich in information. Learned a lot from it. Definitely recommend it.

I really enjoyed the examples at the end of each chapter. The hands on approach is the best for mastering any subject, highly recommend!

This book was great but if I knew wear and usage would be used against me and other students. How does Amazon expect students to use these rentals? In a plastic room each and every day!!!! I have gotten my last book you charged me for and claimed to sent it back to me. You took my money for total charge of the last rental book and YOU HAVE NOT even sent that book which is mine now. Where is it at now, I used this book too like any other student. So this is a BBB complaint, because Amazon sets the unfair rules, so you end up making "ALL" your book rental student pay your price. Your rental book program is a complete, callow rip off to students.

Pissed Off, Used Student!!!!

This text is able to be an introduction to both the world of Linux and the area of Linux server managment. I haven't finished it yet, but it has been a very rewarding read for me...a DOS/Windows programmer who has just missed out out much Linux by chance of personal history.

The author keeps a great line of historical narrative going that is just enough to flush out the topics at hand and "color" them for better retention and understanding. Same with theoretical and hands-on: just a great mix that makes the topic stay alive in the mind.
