Red Hat Certified Engineer Linux Study Guide
While slightly out of date (published in 2000), there is still a
lot of valuable information here. However, overall the book is
choppy: subjects are often referenced but not explained until much
later, and sometimes they are not explained at all.
For a certification book, that's not a completely unforgivable
sin. After all, part of what you get out of such books is the
opportunity to assess your knowledge. So, if you find parts of the
book puzzling, that is a good clue that you'd need to brush up on
those areas before attempting the exam.
The test questions for each chapter are very good, and the
included CD has different test questions with hypertext links to
more information (on the CD and on the Web). As is unfortunately
all too typical, the CD requires Windows to run.

Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them. I resell or can earn commissions from the sale of some of these items. Links within these pages may be affiliate links that pay me for referring you to them. That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.
Specific links that take you to pages that allow you to purchase the item I reviewed are very likely to pay me a commission. Many of the books I review were given to me by the publishers specifically for the purpose of writing a review. These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
