Lacking examples, focus,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: LPIC-1: Linux Professional Institute Certification Study Guide: Exams 101 and 102 (Paperback)
+ Chapters too long & varied - Package managers, library files, and top all in the same chapter! Topics run together.
+ Not enough example command usage or important details - Some utilities have two pages dedicated to listing out every single flag they accept, even the less common ones. This is what man pages are for. Yet, important things such as what exactly the three load-average values represent, are omitted!
+ Left to Google for more - As with the last example, vague descriptions of some things are given and you'll be left to set the book down and Google for the answer yourself. You'll be sure to remember it after that, but these are the kinds of things that should be included.

Hi Sam, I'm not sure when you posted this, but it appears the Kindle edition of the book is out now.
