Best place is The Linux Documentation Project, although some of it is a little out of date, and the man pages already on your system. There's no easy way other than reading a lot and breaking things a lot! You could get a study book and go through like that, but it's not ideal and will miss out stuff just because it's not on the exam. Have fun!

Sure, I'll send you the basics of linux. It's $9.95 postage and handling though, is that okay?

Learn by doing, learn by doing.

while(true){
Install Linux();
Play with Linux();
Try this out();
Try that out();
ContinuePlaying();
Unistall();
}

Basically try out as many different versions, always playing with things on each different one.

Linux is huge, so don't be put off if you do not learn everything in a day. The loop above is infinite as you can never learn everything in Linux.

That's a good price, I'd grab one before cs-cam sells out

You will want to take a look at the introduction at Linux.Org. For points for style, you will need to read Eric Raymond's How to be a Hacker.
For an introduction to Linux commands, you may want to take a look at Linux Command.
