Insane amount of money about the information that could be gathered from the Internet and all you would miss would be the little tiny paper having a word "Certificate" on it. But then again I understand that if you want to go to sysadmin amd the employer knows nothing about you, then the certificate would be the only thing to get your foot to the door. I on the other hand have worked my self up and the companies just know my capabilities and I have no linux/unix certificates what so ever but neither do I have lack of work In IT industry its all about connections and people you know and people who know you.

Hopefully this may help you too.

Hello folks,

Please refer me a book for complete knowledge of shell scripting , from basics, so I can understand things easily.

Who said it could be easy? It takes work. Most shells do not use intuitive methods, syntax, or program structure. A Google search for "<insert_your_preferred_shell_here> tutorial" should find many good references. Don't expect to spend an evening/week/month scanning a book to provide a strong background. Sure, you will be able to become somewhat more productive fairly soon. To become proficient requires some dedication and work. I suggest using the plethora of shell programming questions posed in the LQ forums as a great set of practical example problems to practice on. There will invariably be a host of solutions as well as explanations of how they work, and critical comment from others.
These days, I do not consider printed media to be a primary reference for programming information.

avinashanand1:Hi!

The other thing that you may not be aware of is:

Unless you register with (RHN) Red Hat Network none of the repositories get configured/activated except when you use a DVD/CD.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_repository

If you work with Red Hat you have to pay a subscription.

https://access.redhat.com/subscriptions/rhntransition/
https://www.redhat.com/wapps/store/catalog.html

There are lot's and lot's of free Linux books here!
http://ebookee.org/search.php?q=linux+bible&sa=Search

Good Luck and happy reading!

If you have RHEL, you MUST buy a subscription from RedHat for support & updates.
You then login at the cli as root and run 'rhn_register' and follow the prompts.
