I just passed the 202 today with a score of 590, hence getting my LPI 2 certification.
Before studying the topics I had never really interacted with network services to the degree required by the certification. (lots of detail)
To study for the test, I read around on man pages, official documentation, assorted forums and so on.
I read on the test requirements from the LPI.org website and went after the information myself. I ended up writing around 12.000 lines of documentation on Notepad++. I didn't do any fake tests beforehand or anything like that.
Which takes me to the book:
If you only read this book and take the test, there's no way you'll pass. LPI is different from some other certifications available (such as CCNA with the whole Cisco Press thing) that it doesn't give you the study material. It gives you the areas of interest and lets you go crazy with it. I expected this book to be broader and more comprehensive than it actually is. Not only that, just by paying attention to the exam contents on the website and skimming the book you can see that a lot of stuff is outright left out. And what is not left out sometimes is explained poorly. The iptables chapter is terrible. There's a chapter with GRUB on it, but the test regards GRUB legacy, and GRUB 2 is explained on the book. The Samba related section of the test is enormous, and I can't recall more than one sample configuration explained on the book. Postfix with virtual domains can get pretty wild (and it was very interesting to learn) and the book doesn't even touch it.
It helped to fill one gap, that being PAM, which I had a hard time understanding.
If anything, you can use this book as a benchmark: Study everything you have to and then read this book. If its all too easy and you can spot the thousands of flaws and holes on the book, you're good to go.
Minus 1 star for the price tag, especially the Kindle price which is what I purchased, $40 for a digital book is a bit much in my opinion.
Some of the others I got right were from experience and doing google searches on different commands
Take the advise of a fellow test taker and find better study material because this book alone is NOT going to be enough
After purchase, I found a much better resource online, available for free. Look at the LPIC Wiki, they have a link to an online book.
The flash cards were easily the best part of the purchase.
