Best distro(s) for LPIC study

The examcram2 book has a copyright of 2005 but still says:

"The most direct mapping to the exams seems to be Red Hat 7.3/Red Hat AS 2.1 tree and Debian's 3.0 or Woody/Knoppix 3.x."

Some of these seem a little old. Could it be that he forgot to update this part? What Red Hat AS version would be best?

I'd say as long as you play with Debian and a Redhat ES clone, you should be able to follow most LPIC books. Whitebox and CentOS are decent RH E.S clones.

my 2 cents
