Pros:
Cons:



I was expecting a lot more from this book.
The book consists of a slew of sales literature on the various distributions, a practice exam of questionable quality, and a list of definitions that can be found in at least 100 places along with some VERY BASIC Linux tasks. Nothing is covered in depth.
The redeeming parts of this book are the sections on PC architechure, video modes, and troubleshooting.
At best, it's over-priced ...
