Linux is viewed by many companies and organizations as an excellent, low-cost, secure alternative to expensive operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows. The LPIC-1 tests a candidate's understanding and familiarity with the Linux Kernel. This book provides comprehensive preparation and review, helping readers face the exam with confidence.

  • Review the system architecture, Linux installation, and package management
  • Understand shells, scripting, and data management more completely
  • Practice administrative tasks and essential system services
  • Brush up on networking fundamentals and security issues

As the Linux server market share continue to grow, so too does the demand for qualified and certified Linux administrators. Certification holders must recertify every five years, but LPI recommends recertifying every two years to stay fully up to date with new technologies and best practices. As exam day approaches, LPIC-1Study Guide is the one source you will want by your side.
