Linux Training


Hi All,

I looking to get satisfied in Linux+ to start off with but ultimately want to get into system administration. Unfortunately, and as they say, too much info can be confusing to say the least. With what I have managed to gather, starting off with Linux+ (first) and continuing to LPIC seems to be the sensible way to go.

What I have found tricky is getting some training material. In the past, I have managed to source good training material relatively cheaply (eBay, amazon and the likes). However, it appears Linux training is not widely available.

As the experts, please let me know of suitable, affordable "quality, up to date" resources to help me achieve this goal.

Thanks

The word you're looking for is "certified". Not "satisfied".

This is said to be a good free book:

Hi...

I'm not sure what you mean. I've found a lot of entries in Google after typing in "comptia linux+" including this and this one.

Regards...

Thanks Dugan....its been a long day.

Thanks for the link but I have been through and I must say, its been a great help and has given me the confidence to pursue skills.

I'm looking for something a bit more advanced.

Thanks......I should have said, looking for videos. While I understand the importance of books, I find mixing videos and various other online resources the ideal way for me to learn....especially after a long day in the office.

Not a problem.

How about this online video series? It does require a subscription after the first three chapters but it may be a good resource.

I have used the VTC video courses linked above for some MSSQL stuff and found it really well done. I know they have different trainers for different things, MSSQL, Linux, C Programming etc... so it might be hit and miss if the guy doing the Linux training is as good as the guy that did the MSSQL training. But you can try the first few chapters for free and see!!

Thanks Ardvark. Just what I was looking for, training with some decent structure. This will surely be helps.

Thanks again everyone. Time for some hard work now.
