LPIC Prep Kit 101 General Linux 1

Not bad. This contains everything you need from an exam prep book, including some nice features I haven't seen in other books. Each chapter begins with a set of questions for you to think about while reading the chapter; the end of the chapter answers those questions and then presents a test. I liked that tests explain why the correct answer is correct and why each wrong answer is wrong; that's helpful when you are unclear about something. There's a separate "notes" booklet that contains pretty good notes for each chapter (though they should have left a little space for folks to write their own). There's also a CD that includes a Linux character based test with an impressive 250 questions.

The quality of the content is generally pretty good. There's a few left-field assertions, but very few- I'd give it high marks for accuracy. Both the review tests and the CD test are also very good- again, there's a few things I'd have philosophical disagreements with and a few things that are dead wrong, but very few. Overall, this is an excellent exam prep book.

Much to the surprise of the builders of the first digital computers, programs written for them usually did not work. (Rodney Brooks)
