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 new to Linux & studying the Book 'Linux Essentials Certification' by Robb Tracy. My current OS is Centos7 & I have issues with Dual Boot Linux / Windows7 & problems with Graphics Card compatibility on an AMD dual core Dell Laptop.
Please see Soadyheid's post - we want to help but need a little more info.
Also as veerain suggests CentOS may not be the best bet for installing on home systems. I know you want to learn, but in my experience you spend a lot of time putting out fire's you're never going to have in a server environment.
I'd personally install it in a virtual machine and install something like fedora or open suse on the actual hardware.
If you are studying for the LPI exams that book is written for, you're really going to want fedora/cent, open suse and a Debian based system to practice all of them. Also be advised that the LPIC1 and compTIA+ have both just been updated. You still need to know most of what's in that book, but additional resources will be required for the exam.
Could always help to rename this one (or better yet) start a new thread on the more "technical" topics after searching to see if they may already exist? Second link in my signature has a few good links.
