LPI 2 books


I'm looking to take the LPI 2 exams and have stumbled cross O'Reilly's LPI Linux Certification in a Nutshell, Second Edition which claims to cover the level 2 exams.
Has anyone seen it? or have any opinions about it?
I consulted Exam Cram's LPIC 1 quite a lot for the level 1 exams and found it quite helpful and would like something similar for the level 2 exams.

Thanks for any opinions.

I'm one of the authors, and I haven't actually seen it yet.

I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have though.

Hi Steven
Thanks for the response. My main query is what set of objectives the book is aimed at dealing with. Are the latest objectives as set out on the LPI site(http://www.lpi.org/en/obj_202.html) valid as of 01/03/06.

Cheers

As far as I know, we're still current. I hate not being 100% positive about that, but the book has been in development for a long time, there is a lot of material in it, and there have been several people working on it. Unfortunately, I don't know how well everyone has tracked changes in the LPI objectives.

That said, the worst case is there might be some small gaps in the material. I'm planning on using this book for classes I'll be teaching, so, trust me, if there are any issues with it, we'll make updates here: http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/lpicertnut2/errata/
