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.

LQ has seen many new comers who claim to have RHCE degrees but can't
even figure out how to connect to internet on the Linux systems.
Besides, I haven't heard yet a very positive review of RHCE training centers in
the place where I live.

Well, I can't say that you'll get "many" job opportunities in the
companies as a "fresher" in this field.
My advise would be to join a "school" or "college" at first.
School or colleges usually won't pay you high but you'll get a start.
You won't be called a fresher any more.
If you get Certification you will definitely get a job. Ask if they provide for placement from the institute itself.
Learning Linux by yourself can be daunting task unless you know some basics of Linux.
The self-quote by Anisha in post #2 is good advice.
Get yourself a copy of Centos and learn/practice until you know it well, then you can think about course/cert.
If you get yourself up to a good std at home, the you'll be able to take a shorter course that will save you money.
I don't know about India, but a Cert does NOT generally guarantee you a job, BUT a lot of HR Depts/Agencies use that as a simple weeding out pt, so can be handy.
