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.

I am a Linux newbie and would like to have some exercises to practice what I am learning.
I don't know if you are acquainted with the book "RH033 Red Hat Linux Essentials", but if you are, then these are the types of exercises I am looking for. Unfortunately, I don't have this book, I just saw a few examples of what they have :-(
Do you know of a website or any other source from where I can take similar exercises for practicing?
I am reading a lot of info, but without something to help me put theory into practice, I feel I can't really absorb anything.
It doesn't consist of exercises, but it explains how to get stuff done under linux with the commands for you to try out. It also gives the impression of being a bit dated and focuses on the command line, but if you want to be really productive under linux, then you need to learn exactly that. I found it very helpful.
Hi Ahmed! Thanks, I do use linux.org quite a lot and you are right, it is helpfull indeed - BUT - I still lack the putting into practice part. For me it is very very hard to learn theory without exercises to follow up - my brain just doesn't absorb stuff that way :-(
If anyone else knows about a place from where I can get LABs/exercises, I would be extremely grateful.
