Linux book with lot of exercises


Hi

Being a science student, I am used to the books with
lots of exercises, to test student's knowledge. So since
I am new to the world of Linux, I am looking for such books. The book should have lots of exercises to test the knowledge given in the respective chapter. Many Linux books don't have any exercises.

Please suggest such books.

Thanks

Linux online tutorial

Hi,

Maybe you must check the Linux Server online tutorial at "Linux Services Organization". It contains many practical step-by-step exercices...

Another advice would be to just use linux, try new things, set up servers, break things, fix things, set up some other servers, configure some application, write bash scripts to optimise/automate your system.

Books are good, but hands-on experience/practice is more important.

Good Luck

Hi issacnewton and welcome to LQ,

one great chance to test your knowledge is this forum. Read the questions and try to find an answer, most often you'll find the solution a few posts later in the thread.

I found one book which has the 'exercises' pattern that I am looking for.
"A Practical Guide To Linux Commands, Editors, And Shell Programming" by Mark Sobell.

By the way, I will check those great links
