You can't get practical experience by reading books. The only way to get practical experience is to actually use Linux/Unix.
Set up a system, set yourself a goal, try to achieve it. If you have problems do a web search and see if you can solve them, if not come here to ask for help.

Moussamedjahed: If you want to look at some tutorials, go to https://www.linux.com/learn/tutorials and look under the "Latest tutorials" section. They usually have some practical tutorials. As Tobisgd said, the best way to get practice is to learn by doing.

You did not state what your goals are for using Linux or which distro you are considering.
If you just want basic advice for using Linux on a home computer system you can download the free Ubuntu manual from here: https://ubuntu-manual.org/
And here is a great site for getting started with Ubuntu: http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/
Here is a guide to using Linux Mint: http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/20
If you want to try Slackware, there is the Slack Book: http://slackbook.org/
The Slack Book is a great tutorial on basic Linux commands as well.
And here is a great source of Slackware documentation: http://docs.slackware.com/
The problem with physical (i.e., paper and ink) books is that they become out of date very quickly. The online documentation is your best source of up to date guides.

Write back if you need more specific help.
And welcome to the LQ forums!

I suggest you narrow your focus. "Learn Linux" is a huge thing that no one person can do.

Pick something you want to do (for me, it was to self-host my website), then learn how to do it. In doing it, you will also learn about Linux. Then pick something else, and in doing it you will learn more about Linux. And so on.

The reference I found most useful when I started was Garrels's Intro to Linux: http://www.tldp.org/LDP/intro-linux/html/ (It's also available in PDF and other formats on the "guides" page).

About dot com also has a good set of Linux tutorials.

All good refs, the above. In addition . . .

rute tutorial and exposition
Some don't like to read, just to do. I like to do both.

Welcome!

1. How about a virtual machine? You can run any Linux under Windows XP, Win 7, Win 8. Just get an ISO of the linux you want.

https://www.virtualbox.org/ is free.


2. Get a free shell account. Google "free shell account".

3. JSLinux. Give this terminal 10 seconds to boot up. Unknown type of Linux.
