At about the 10% of the price of the current exam study guide this gives me what I am looking for.
It was listed as used, but I don't think this book was ever opened.
More specifically, without actually going into said questions:
- Which of the most important files under /proc and what they all contain, for instance, where you'd find what options were passed to the kernel from the boot-loader, or find all detected devices on the SCSI subsystem.
- The significance of double and single quotes, and their effects on regular expressions and shell interpretation.
- Basic commands like "file" and "tr", their most common usages, and perhaps intricacies such as effects on the underlying files when manipulated with these tools.
- Some very important situations where you might need to know specific switches for the "rpm" and "dpkg" commands.
The practice exams and flash cards are also wholly inadequate, especially if you are taking this test without a lot of actual Linux admin experience under your belt. It will definitely help you - but I wouldn't buy JUST this book for exam prep.
UPDATE - I have to add another star for all the references to Firefly in the bash scripting chapter.
The best part of the book is access to Sybex's website for their example tests, which provides two example tests. Each are about 50 questions each, many of the questions are very close or the same as the actual tests. Also, when you review the results it provides the "whys" for all answers. e.g. Answer B is incorrect for... Answer A,and D are correct because... The tests are modeled very well to help get the feel for actual test. e.g. Choose two answers..., choose three answers..., choose all that apply... The only part that is bad is that the test is not all multiple choice, some questions are fill in the blank, which I think is much harder.
To prepare for the test I read this book through once, then took the Sybex test twice, then took the test.
After using this book the actual test for LX0-103 took me about 20 minutes to complete, and another 20 to review. I was done in 45 minutes, start to finish. And I passed. On to test 2, LX0-104.
EDIT: Took test two, LX0-104, same result. Test took about 45 minutes totdal from start to finish, passing. Good book, better software. Obtaining this cert also provides LPIC-1 cert, which also provides the Suse cert. Three certs in one. Good luck.
But first off, let me cover the good stuff. It is well-written and, as someone with over a dozen years of Unix/Linux experience (including casual sysadmin work), I could find nothing factually wrong with it. The second half of the book, which covered the LX0-104 exam objectives, was definitely on-point relative to the exam I took today.
It's the first half, the LX0-103 preparation portion, that was not really adequate. In a way, it's not the book's fault; the 103 test felt more like a command-line trivia test than a legitimate test of my Linux experience/knowledge, expecting me to be able to fill in the blanks (literally) regarding distribution-specific file names, file locations, and obscure options and switches. And yet, this is a test prep book, meaning that its job was supposed to be to prepare me for the level of specificity that I needed to be able to provide on the test; the relatively simple multiple-choice questions in the book, as well as the practice tests that you can unlock on the Sybex site, hardly approached the level of difficulty that I encountered on the real 103 test, and didn't even hint at the existence of fill-in-the-blank questions. I mean, I did pass the 103 (barely), but it's not as if some of my correct answers didn't come from previous knowledge/experience rather than the book.
It is a good Linux book, and don't take anything I've said to mean otherwise. But I do wish it had worked me a bit harder on the 103 stuff, because (based on the book/website's practice questions) I went into that exam much more confident than I should have been.

Ottimo per chi vuole iniziare sul serio ad usare Linux e non vuole usare fonti frammentate trovate online. Ciononostante, questo libro serve per prepararsi all'esame Linux+ (LPIC-1) per il quale prepara abbastanza bene. Il libro include moltissimi argomenti fondamentali per un amministratore di sistema Linux, ma include anche molti obiettivi che riguardano tecnologie oramai obsolete e concetti poco utili nelle operazioni day-to-day.
Questo libro vi aiuterà certamente a migliorare le vostre capacità, e vi darà anche accesso a degli "esami di prova" abbastanza utili per chi vuole superare i due esami necessari al raggiungimento della certificazione Linux+.
Il voto basso è dettato dal fatto che alcuni argomenti sono di difficile comprensione ai neofiti, ed al fatto che ci siano molti temi (sia nel libro che nell'esame) che probabilmente non vi troverete mai davanti nella vostra vita.
employer will be happy to have you and take good way to use your knowledge and willing to pay your desired salary target. because it is a powerful in Computer Science or Engineering field.
