when it comes to any kind of computer book, there's only one way to decide which to get:
1: on a nice lazy day, (sundays are best) go to the computer section of a nice large bookstore; preferably borders or barnes and noble... the chain store have the best reference books.
2: find a nice chair. make sure nobody else gets within 10 feet of it.
3: skim every book that looks vaguely interesting.
4: read a chapter or two from a book that passes the skim test. remember, if you already know everything you're reading, put it down and find another one.
5: don't forget to browse the nude art section on your way out.

Nude Art Section, when its not busy, you take that black plastic wrap off a Playboy or something.. make sure you have that enlarged ad paper from the front of the store for free or a large book to have covering it, find that lonely chair with no one around and sit back and skim thru that.. you know.. the jokes sections that is..
man, that sounded like i have actually done that before!!!

Lpic 101 & 102


I've just purchased LPIC I Exam Cram 2: Exam 101, 102 (Exam Cram 2 S.) by Ross Brunson ISBN: 0789731274.

This comes highly recommended, is "approved" by the LPIC itself and has been revised to take account of the course changes.

Here's a quote from a mostly satisfied Amazon / Debian user:

"This is a fundamentally good book. It's one of the most recent LPIC books on the market, being published in 2004. It does not teach Linux, the reader must have a working knowledge of Linux to be able to use this book. Nor does the book contain all the information required to pass the exam, rather it provides a summary of the main topics, and key points, and it is up to the reader to locate the extra information. It's a compact format, and the typography is fine, and the techincal listing are mostly easy to read and follow.

There are a few problems, the Debian information is often wrong, or at least it's not like my Debian Wooody or Sarge systems. There are quite a few typographical errors, a command will be explained, and the following example will be plain wrong.

The CD worked fine on a Windows system, but failed to install properly on my Debian system.

It's basically good book, let down by a few niggles. Hopefully the errors can be corrected in the next reprint, the changes need not require a whole new edition."

Definitely one to have a look at to see if you like the style.

Exam Cram Book - Errors , and practice exam web site

I have the ExamCram 2 LPIC 1 book.

I have written a review at:
Penguin Tutor ExamCram 2 LPIC 1 Book Review

The exam simulator didn't work on Mandrake either, but I've included instructions on how to get it working (may differ with different distributions).

My site also has a LPI 101 practice exam (and I will be adding a 102 exam soon).

When Shopping for books I may browse the bookstore, but I usually come back home and punch the ISBN number into They do a comparative search of pretty much every web bookstore and locate the best price including shipping.

Less than $27.00 for the book you were looking at.. not a bad deal if you don't mind used..

Although the Sybex book is much newer.. (2005 vs 2001 published date)
