Thorough reference! Easy to read and follow.

Clear, concise, with lots of examples. It is well organized; read cover-to-cover.
For both exams, book is split into two parts, one for each exam. Practice questions and a practice exam included in each part.
If you have a few years experience with Linux you can probably skim most of it and still benefit enough to pass the exam. I picked up a few things, here and there that I didn't know or had forgotten.
If you are new to Linux and want to get the LPIC-1, the nutshell book, in my opinion, isn't going to provide enough information to fully grasp all the areas in the exam. You could, however, pass the exam by studying this book with little or no prior knowledge of Linux.
I recommend practicing the examples for retention.
This book could also be used as a good starter for taking up the Linux command-line.
