5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely superb UNIX training April 10, 2007
This version as well as my review is outdated, new 2008 edition is available Linux and UNIX for a beginner training suite, 4DVDs + 2CDs includes 4 Unix Academy Certifications ed.2008

Friend of mine got this one and it is the same course as for $217 but with no certification. In a case you don't need the certification it is an unbelievable deal. For price of thick UNIX book you get the whole UNIX training on DVD!

The course happened to be very helpful. You're getting the entire prospective and learn in two-three days things that would be very time consuming otherwise .

This course is what it claims to be: the solid, comprehensive course for the beginner and a guide to UNIX workflow. I purchased this course along with some books on UNIX and have to admit that it is SO MUCH easier to follow the DVD course. To mention I liked my diplomas very much and framed both.

I'm 38 years old and despite I had some general computer experience it was my first venture into such sophisticated thing as UNIX is and for most it had passed smoothly. There are some things that I worked out for three times and some that I collected from the single pass but the overall impression this course had made is positive and productive

Learning UNIX/Linux for a beginner is a huge challenge as it is so comprehensive, implies familiarity with many details, and requires understanding of numerous concepts. There are many books on the subject but near all of them are difficult to penetrate and usually there's huge gap between theory you learn and the ability to apply that theory in practice. So many books I have tried happened to be too simplistic to be useful or too heavy.

The production quality is terrible. The information is near useless. The instruction is hard to follow. Not worth the money -- too bad

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing... December 29, 2007
I purchased this course - all 4 DVDs for over $200, thinking it would teach me something. Well, unfortunately, besides brushing up on some old fundamentals it disappointed me. Definitely not worth $200 in my opinion...but I will let you be the judge of that.

Further "Dislikes":

1. He "mimes" to try sync with his pre-recorded voice narration, without
much success. Get's a bit irritating after a while (remember the old
Eastern Kungfu movies?)
2. His mixture of English words does not go well with his strong foreign
accent. This, at times, makes it difficult to follow what he is saying
especially when he uses "tech words" that newbies won't have heard
before.
3. He spends too much time explaining basic concepts, without getting
into the the actual material enough.
4. The examples on screen are often cut off, which means you cannot follow
what he is explaining as you cannot see the examples.
5. He, at times, makes mistakes at the command line, but does not always
correct them, which leaves you guessing what is correct - unless you
knew better yourself.

Having been through 3 of the 4 discs (couldn't push myself any further than disc 3), I gave up. Other CBT Unix / Linux training that I do recommend (over Boris' course) are those offered by CBT Nuggets and LinuxCBT. That and a few good Unix/Linux books will get you far more productive in the Unix/Linux World.

For those wanting a very "Basic Intro" into Unix, then stick with Boris.

2.0 out of 5 stars UNIX and Linux System and Networking was disappointing December 2, 2007
Verified Purchase
I thought it would be a good resource, but it did not add anything to my knowledge. I have already read this book: Your UNIX: The Ultimate Guide by Sumitabha Das, and it has all information you need to know about UNIX. If you have worked and played with linux/unix, then you don't need this DVD set. Somehow on the DVDs is printed "become Certified UNIX System Administrator" and that is a joke. With this DVD set you are not even close to pass a simple test. However, it is good basic knowledge for those who don't want to read books. I know that there is no way to cover all UNIX in 4 DVD set, but I think the creator of these DVD set could do much better. For example, instead of talking whole time about OSI and TCPIP model, he could use two/there unix/linux computers and show how one can create a good network using UNIX tools and commands.
