"This procedure is not recommended because SSH version 1 is not as secure as version 1; however, you may need to use version 1 to connect to some servers"
And the practice questions are nowhere near the caliber of the exam questions. I blew these ones out of the water, but my passing score on the Linux+ exams were sad compared to what they were on the practice tests I took. And whats up with the blatantly tricky BS test questions at that?
For instance one of the test questions was:
Your company moves from New York City to Boston (both cities are in the U.S. Eastern time zone). Your computers contain /etc/localtime files that are symbolic links to /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York. How must you adjust these computers’ time zone configurations?
The answer: E) None of the above.
The reason? "Because New York and Boston are in the same time zone, no time zone changes are necessary, so option E is correct."
I'm sorry but this little slap in the face is not only a trick question, but disregards the fact that this exam is covered in many countries around the world, and I'm sure there are quite a few people who don't know where exactly all the 50 states have timezone cutoffs and which states don't even observe daylight savings.
Ok, I'm done ranting, so let me do a rundown of the good:
-Covers all the material. no doubt.
-Good for intermediate Linux users already.
-Always gives you "a little extra", what to watch out for, more common ways to do things than the exam world, and several examples along the way.
-Typos and dumb practice test questions as explained above.
-Not enough hands on examples to get the depth the Linux+ exmaples. For instance, a lot of the test requires you to know a lot of the flags used with commands. Briefly touching over them and using commands without flags doesn't prepare you enough. More examples on advanced ways to use some of these commands would have been helpful.
-Some of the sections, like SSH, I felt were pretty incomplete, even for the tests standards.
All in all, I used this book, the Shotts "The Linux Command Line" and www.theurbanpenguin.com to prepare, and I got the pass, it just wasn't as easy as I was expecting it to me. Interesting that for an "entry level" exam, this was probably harder than the CCNA, but maybe thats just because my linux was garbage before I started studying for this, and I already had touched cisco devices before.
If you're shopping for a book and you're completely new to Linux I would start with Tracy's book (yes even though it has a few things wrong). Tracy's book seems catered to the beginner. Just be sure to do a man page of every command he gives which you should do with any book because you cannot rely on what they tell you for options to do know for a command; in Tracy's case though you're doing it because it might be one of the ones he got wrong.
If you're not new to linux and have at least some experience, I would just buy this book and ignore Tracy's book. I really want to say ignore Tracy's book altogether but Roderick's book is so dry, dull, and man page like that if you lack at least some introductory knowledge this book might kill you. I didn't subtract any stars for that because, personally, I like that. I always see complaints about cert guides not being great for beginners because it didn't explain things for well or something of the sort. Well waaaa. A cert guide is not a Dummies guide, they're a guide to a certification.
The tests that come with this book are a joke. They don't do anything for you except reinforce that you memorized what he said, not that you understand it enough it to take a real test; which again, is only an issue if you're new. Don't rely on this tests, go to LPICs website, they have links to other sites that have practice tests. Be warned that a lot of tests out there aren't real, they aren't actually material for this exam; which is why you shouldn't go outside the resources at LPIC's site. A lot of the websites, apps, and tests for purchase aren't actually Linux+/LPIC-1. They are OLD LPIC-1 or current LPIC-2. One such test floating around that is labeled as Linux+/LPIC-1 has a ton of technical questions of Samba configuration; Samba isn't on this exam.
The only reason I docked a star is because this book is missing information; not enough that you can't still pass without a problem, but enough that you might be annoyed.
As a side note because I just remembered; Tracy's book absolutely blows for LX0-102 (the second test), it is missing a ridiculous amount of information about the second test; enough so that if Tracy's guide was your only book (and you're somewhat new) you would fail the second test miserably.
If you care the digital content for this book includes the assessment test from the beginning of the book (to gauge if you're already ready), a hundred or so flashcards, each end of chapter test, and around a 50 question test for both LX0-101 and LX0-102.
I passed! I guess that's the main thing.
I felt confident after finishing the first exam, but the second exam was pretty brutal in comparison. For the second exam, I would definitely supplement my studies with resources outside of this book. They tell you that there are 5 "experimental" questions that aren't counted towards the score, but I felt like there were at least 20 questions where I had no clue what the answer was :p
Another issue is that there is a lot of information presented in this book, so it is definitely not for beginners. It is also hard to pull out which pieces of information are the most important for the exams.
I read it cover to cover and now I am skipping through the topics taking pretty detailed notes trying to pull out the parts that are most beneficial to study for the exam, which is taking a while.
If you have some experience (2-3+ years) this should be an "ok" book to use. You should at least be familiar with all of the topics and concepts presented in the chapter or you risk getting lost pretty quick. I'm glad I didn't use this as a beginner.
