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.

But there's no such thing as "Best" on that short list. 'Favourite' or 'Preferred' is more appropriate. 'Best' would imply what actually gets you or tests you for a) the most knowledge, or b) the better job
The problem with this poll is that the various certification options are really very different. Only LPI & CompTIA are truly distribution independent, (or at least try to be) so those two are the only valid choices.
If you want RED HAT Certification, then that is what you should do... Ditto Novell.
I agree there is no "BEST" but I'm going to say LPI (not trying to be biased since im studying for it) but I like the fact that it is distro neutral.
Most of the clients I have supported are either running RHEL, AIX or Debian (Ubuntu LTS)...
Regarding the LPI studies - I find it challenges me to work on all things and approaches Linux (Hardware, the command line and basic configs) and I hope that I will have enough industry experience and book smarts to tackle it and nail it!
All the best to you guys in your studies (if you're studying!)
