first time with linux in school and looking for a good book to use

I am a student taking linux as part of the IT courses. The book we are using is a pratical guide to fedora and red hat enterprise linux by mark g sobell. we are using fedora 12 for class and was wondering is there any other good books that will help me understand linux better?

Thanks in advance

Not sure if you are looking for something distro spesific then, but when I started to learn Linux I bought the "Linux Cookbook, 2nd edition". It helped me alot

Google linux and scholar was of immense help when deciding upon a book - considering that almost every tom dick and harry is writing a Linux book now a days.

It was easy for me decide which book matched my capability/skills and buy one.

If you love subject - you will always be thirsty for more.
