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

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for beginners! June 30, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book July 30, 2008
By A. Ross
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE book September 4, 2010
By NU_ITM
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book but... December 12, 2008
Format:Paperback
Great book, terrible software! In an online class I use this book for, I have been unable to get the version of Fedora (core 2) that comes with the book to install correctly. Several other students with the same book have the same issues. Perhaps ship this book with a newer version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Uncomplicated book October 13, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has the most straight-forward explanations on the subject. Much easier to read than other books I have tried. Simple layout and summaries of chapters are useful for quick revision.
