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.

recently i switched to Fedora Os now i need help in accessing my documents
Just guessing, since we don't have any details about what you're wanting, but if all you need to do is open them, then run Libreoffice (or openoffice), click "File->Open", then pick a document. Just like you would in Microsoft office.
Also, if this is a new installation, STOP WHERE YOU ARE, and load the LATEST version of Fedora, which is 20. You are SEVERAL revisions behind, and things are only going to get worse (from a bugfix/security update/able-to-install-new-software) standpoint.
its Microsoft office excel file and word file i need to open them and edit the same
OpenOffice.org is the place to visit to free you from the bloat/vendor lock ware that is MS Office. OOo is better, faster, more secure, more reliable, and 100% cross platform plus its free as in beer. Ive been using it since 2000 and refuse to look back. even at work I install OOo on my system and never use the "pre-installed" MS Office.
Before you install LibreOffice (or OpenOffice), you might want to try openjing the Word document using Abiword, and the Excel document using Gnumeric (assuming Abiword and Gnumeric are already installed). YMMV, but you've got nothing to lose by trying.
