Post network administration recommendation?

Hey Guys,

I'm beginning to explore my way into the networks and linux network administration worlds, and i need your recommendations on books or pdfs to begin from, i already have done my homework and came out with:
-Unix and linux administration handbook (has a network section in it)
-network warrior
-LPI linux certification in a nutshell(has a network section in it)
are these enough, not enough, good, no good books to start from?? i need your help on that

Your question overlooks an important factor, namely, how do _you_ learn?

Personally, I learn by doing. So reference books (e.g. Linux Command Line and Shell Scripting Bible9 are more helpful than cover-to-cover material to me. This way I can open the book when I encounter a problem.

Some people like to understand the entire concepts before getting around to actualizing them. What kind of cat are you?
