In all, this is a valuableaddition toO'Reilly's already packed stable of Linux titles and I look forward tomore from the author."--First Monday

Review:

You may not have heard of the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) or its professional certifications, but they're becoming an important part of proving professional competence in the Linux operating system. That aside, LPI Linux Certification in a Nutshell is a fantastic introductory Linux book, well suited to introducing a curious newcomer to the environment and bringing an intermediate user up to expert status.

The book is organized around the LPI's published standards for two Level 1 exams (exams 101, which deals with key commands and file-system concepts, and 102, which places more emphasis on hardware, networking, and shell scripting). The organization works well even if you're not specifically preparing for either exam.

LPI Linux Certification in a Nutshell assumes nothing in early chapters, going so far--to cite one example--as to walk readers through the concept of commands with parameters separately from the concept of commands alone. Later, the pace picks up, and strategic advice is substituted (such as how to partition a disk for maximum speed and reliability) for "type-this" instructions.

Throughout, the book makes effective use of O'Reilly's time-tested and remarkably clear format for presenting Unix commands and configuration files. Each chapter concludes with a series of exercises designed to help you discover behaviors on your own, and includes the practice questions you expect in a test-prep aid. --David Wall

Topics covered: The knowledge that's tested on the Linux Professional Institute's exams 101 and 102, which includes everything from basic Linux commands and concepts to installation of the operating system, essential network configuration, and kernel recompilation.

About the Author:

Steven Pritchard is a Linux guy and a hardware geek who spends a disturbing amount of time working on Fedora's Perl packages (plus a few other things), occasionally remembers to update the Linux Hardware Compatibility HOWTO, and sort of works a day job. He lives in Fairview Heights, Illinois with his wife Kara, daughter Emma, and a bunch of cats.

Bruno Gomes Pessanha has been a collaborating translator for the Linux Professional Institute since 2002. He also works as a consulting analyst for a Brazilian government petroleum enterprise, covering Linux migration and initiatives and administering high-end performance projects, high availability clusters, and mission critical services. He lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Nicolai Langfeldt, a programmer, system administrator, and systems integrator, lives in Oslo, Norway. A Linux consultant since 1994, Nicolai works for Linpro (a well-established Norwegian Linux consulting firm) and is the cofounder of Linux Norge, an information portal for Linux. He has written several well-regarded HOWTOs for the Linux Documentation project and is author of "The Concise Guide to DNS and BIND" by QUE.

James Stanger has been involved with Linux since 1995, and has worked closely with the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) since its inception in 1999. He is Chair of the LPI Advisory Council, where he helps the LPI coordinate input from corporations and the open source community. James has a unique understanding of LPI's certification exams, as he is an expert in both the certification industry and in Gnu/Linux, networking, and security.

Jeff Dean is a freelance author and consultant in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Jeffrey has professional experience in IT management, training delivery, and system administration of the VMS, Unix, AS/400, and Windows NT operating systems.
