Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hehe, since I don't have much money and don't have any right now to go take a actual test, I knew about www.brainbench.com and some of their free tests they have.
So I was bored at work, working some stupid OT so I have some actual money to just have.. , I went to Brainbench and saw that they had a Free Linux Administration test to take that is like 40 questions long.
So I took it finally and I would have to say, it was actually kind of hard, but I am proud of myself and can say I passed that sucker scoring better than the previous 81% that have taken it.
Not bad I say to myself since there were alot of samba questions, and I suck at samba. Maybe I'll use the money working tonight to go take an actual Certification Test..
Ok, if you can't tell, I'm bored at work, glad I don't work the late night shift, but happy I only have 30 minutes til I get to leave.
Just to let you know how st00pid I am, I took the LQ test and scored lower than most other's taking it. I think I will pass on something a bit worse. But thanks for the link. When I grow to be a SuperMasterGuru like you guys, I may take the test.
I've just taken the same test at brainbench, my score was good too concidering that I suck at networking (my score was higher than 69% of respondents who've taken it). So, Jeremy challenge us!!! This's a wonderful idea!!!
25 minutes, but I lost one to the 180 seconds to answer problem because I ran downstairs to change the CD player off of My roommate's now-ex-girlfriend's copy of Enya that needed to be frisbee'd out of rotation with extreme prejudice, despite the LOTR soundtrack.
It told me that my strengths were kernel compilation and security and weaknesses were system administration and network security; smarmy twerps...
I think Jeremy needs to make a Linux Questions certifiable test, as in:
Which gets asked most:
1. X config questions
2. Sound config
3. NAT/MASQ setups
5. HELLLLLLLLPPPPP, Linux won't boot!!!
Originally posted by finegan It told me that my strengths were kernel compilation and security and weaknesses were system administration and network security; smarmy twerps...
That's strange, I only got 3% higher than your score and it didn't tell me I had any weaknesses... Maybe I only missed like one on any particular topic or such.
Weakness of System Administration and Network Security, but your good at kernel compile and security, that doesn't make sense.. oh well.
Winmodem questions I've noticed have died down a bit, I've noticed alot of SSH type of questions though.
I took the test, I scored higher than 52% of all previous test takers
My strengths were:
Configuration and Administration
System Administration and Security
Here's the quote from the scorecard:
Demonstrates a solid understanding of core concepts within this topic. Appears capable of working on most projects in this area with moderate assistance. May require some initial assistance with advanced concepts, however.
