Good basic overview of Linux Administration,

This review is from: Linux+ Study Guide: Exam XKO 001 (With CD-ROM) (Hardcover)
I have not yet taken the exam and am planning on reading a couple of other study guides and the exam cram first. I have only been using linux for about 4 or 5 months and use it as my primary desktop operating system. This study guide is easy to understand and appears to cover all of the objectives of the exam except for the hardware objectives. The book does not, however, go into a lot of detail. Linux+ is supposed to be an entry level exam (with LPI and SAIR being mid-level) so this may be sufficient. If the test goes very far into detail (such as asking what ps -aux does rather than what ps does), there might be a problem. I would stronly suggest that test-takers read this book and then follow it with a more in-depth book.
