Generally I'd suggest just using it and referring to online docs. If you want to study the sysadmin side, then I would suggest Michael Jangs RHCSA / RHCE guide. Whilst this is a study guide for RedHat certification, it covers all the basics you probably want to cover.

"A practical Guide to Linux" by "Mark G. Sobel" is a good start on shell programming, commands , sed, awk etc
