could have been better,
This review is from: LPIC-1: Linux Professional Institute Certification Study Guide: Exams 101 and 102 (Paperback)
My number one complaint is that the practice exam was nothing like the actual exam. The real exam was mostly fill in the blank which is pretty different than multiple choice. I would have paid more attention to the spelling of some commands if I had known. Of course there was no tab completion on the test ;)
The book is also a bit disorganized and covers topics in the same chapter that are not particularly related making it harder to organize my notes. There are also some points in the text where the author says that something is not relevant and won't be covered in the book but then it is mentioned over and over. The example that comes to mind is the older versions of Xorg which are compared to new versions repeatedly despite having mentioned at the beginning of the chapter that the test won't ask about them.
Other than that the book was helpful as a starting point for studying, and I passed the test.
